I am still enjoying the summer break but my sewing frenzy came to stop and I spent a week with family and then I procrastinated watching back to back episodes of the Good Wife on Netflix. However, today I decided it was time to get back into the sewing room and be creative. A couple of Weeks ago I received a lovely surprise in the post, a Laura Kemshall "Finish Me Art Journal". Ever since its arrival I have stroked it, hugged it and flipped through the pages, whilst thinking what I will do to it. Laura offers tips and advice on her blog and I popped over for some inspirational ideas. First things first put my name on it. I used several alphabet stamp sets to create a collective of various fonts and styles for my name. I used water colour pencils to add some colour and randomly chosen stamps to add some imagery. Nothing was planned it was a go with the flow thing and I am pleased with how it has turned out.
