Black and white journal page for It's Crafting time.

It's been a while since I did a project for It's Crafting time, because Helen gave us a fantastic break over Christmas. I really needed it too, but I was itching to get my next project done for them, and my theme for this one was Black and White.

I chose to do a fab journal page, but I couldn't resist just a little smidge of colour, after all I adore colour.

I've gone all stamp and stencil tastic for this one. I'm loving the grungy look from the black and white theme.
I've used Tim Holtz background & butterfly stamps and 7 Gypsies Family and Venice clear stamps, on both pages.


The black, teal and orange paints are Adirondack dabbers, some I've used to stamp with and some I've splatted the paint across the page. There is something really satisfying about flicking paint, it feels naughty but it's allowed, and you have no idea where its going to go! The teal outline is from a my Prismacolour pencils that I got for Christmas, I love these, the colours are really rich,

I finished off the page by sticking down a photo of me and my son with washi tape. This pic was taken in 2006, my son was only 15 at the time, now he's 22! How time flies.

Have painty inky fun everyone

It's actually very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use world wide web for that purpose, and take the newest news.
