This morning I could have shouted at someone. For the second time this month my Internet has gone off and had been off since yesterday morning, I had no means of nosing at the outside world. I'm also trying to shake off a cold and I've got a mozzie bite that's ballooned on my ankle! It was safe to say I was in a very grumpy mood.....but..
Then there was a knock at the door and it was a parcel for me...but I wasn't expecting anything...it was from Art from the Heart.....what could it be?
IT WAS THIS!
One happy Shelley coming right up!
I had a big smile on my face and this lovely parcel instantly lifted my spirits and I was no longer in a cloud of doom.
Shortly after this the Internet miraculously came back on! Happy days!
So I got to work on inking up my Spray Ink Pad.
These are my most favourite colours, London Blue, Vibrant Turquoise, and Crushed Grape.
As you can see on the pad I have already used the Dylusions Flower stamp to make some fab flowers on a journal page. It's like making your own Big n Juicy pad. I love it!
So I set to work making a journal page using the NEW! Small Dylusions Journal, This Old House, Day of the Heads and Boney Maloney stamp sets.
I did the background by lying my journal page on the ink pad. Then drying it, then doing it again and drying it. Then I stamped the skulls using the ink pad. You can see the skulls in the background below. I really LOVE this stamp pad!
I cut out the glass of the windows and put one of the skulls behind the window so you could just see his eyes.
I coloured in the grass using Prisma Colour pencils and I coloured the house, hat and eyes with Promarkers.
The pages in the new smaller Dylusions Journal are great. Nice sturdy pages all the same this time and they hold the colour beautifully. Well worth getting the lot really!
Thank you Art from the Heart (Ben, Dyan & Ali xx)
You made my day!
Have a great week.
