Something Old...Something New...Day 6

Hi folks...Monday morning and the beginning of another week of me having fun with the Something Old...Something New challenge but I have to confess to being a big old cowardy custard...I completely chickened out on having another go with the Crackly Tissue Paper technique...that is until I manage to get my hands on some Fresco Finish Satin Glaze...it's that old adage if you use the right tools.  So instead I just went to town with lots of Fresco Finish Paints on an old Paperchase notebook I've had for donkeys and some new alphabet stickers...did I ever tell you I have an addiction for anything alphabety...yeah a girl can never have too many sheets of alphabets...
so here's my finished art journal...


complete with my first dipping a toe into the world of art journaling "warts 'n all" attempt...
and here's today list of playtime ingredients...
Toodle...oo for now...I'm off to play...see you all tomorrow

  10. Kath, I read your blog daily, right after I pour my morning coffee. I am addicted to caffine and your cards, but mostly it's your joie de vivre. I'm American. I have no idea if I spelled that correctly. Nonetheless, I enjoy your art, but it's your personal take on life that makes your blog part of my daily ritual.
