Team LB got together for a play day today and what a lovely day we had. It's the first time that Karen, Linda E. and I have managed to all get together since I closed the shop. We have been trying for some time but due to sickness and other commitments we didn't manage to pull it off until now, but it was definitely worth the wait. We spent a lot of time talking and not that much time creating but that's OK, we had a lot to catch up on.
Anyways, I did do a double page in my giant journal. It started out with a few bits of printed tissue paper stuck on with Claudine Hellmuth's matt medium. Then a few book pages and some scrapbooking paper. Lots of layers of Paperarty's Fresco Finish paint.Stencilling with Crafters Workshop stencils and more layers of paint. At this point I wasn't in love with it and then I remembered something that Donna Downey does.....she adds tape to her pages. Now I have used tape on my pages in the past before I saw Donna using tape but I had always just used masking tape or Tim Holtz tissue tape, Donna uses tape of all kinds so I thought I would give it a go and I'm really glad I did as it kinda pulled the whole thing together. I had some washi style tape that I got at Christmas by Cavalini......love their stuff!!
I just popped out to John Lewis to buy more thread for my sewing machine......have already used up a whole reel....so that I can continue with my fabric adventures in the morning. It's snowing again outside, hope it doesn't amount to much, I'm not a snow lover at all.
Stay warm, Lin
