I'm on a Roll...

Hi folks...the snow's gone...replaced by rather wet windy chilly weather but I've been too busy playing in the world of art journaling to's very addictive isn't it and once you've learnt to lose your inhibitions and throw caution to the's great fun although it did end up with the cubbyhole and me requiring a hose down at the end of the day. I found this chipboard album hiding at the back of the cupboard and went to town with the gorgeous Fresco Finish Paints from Paperartsy...

stamping with Hero Arts...they may be oldies but they are some of my favourites and I go back to them time and time again...stamping the sentiment with white paint as a background...colouring the images with Fresco Finish translucents and then dabbing paint through a mask...
finishing off with a bit of Black Fine Liner decoration...
And after our morning stroll and another visit to the's going to be a PLAY DAY..."All Things Tim Holtz" are ready and waiting to have some fun with this month's tag for "12 Tags of 2013".  I'll see you all tomorrow for a brand new challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.
