We have ripped out all the fitted wardrobes in the bedroom and completely gutted the en suite bathroom. I thought it would be fun choosing tiles and colours but this little project is proving to be more of a challenge than we first thought. Everything we selected so far has been out of stock and we have had to compromise. We could of course wait 4-6 weeks for those out of stock items but that is not an option for us as we have already ripped everything out!!!
Even Meg the dog has been helping!!!
So with all of this going on, there hasn't been much time for creativity. I did manage to sneak out to my studio for an hour or two and had a play in my brand new 12 x 12 kraft paged journal. I'm loving this journal, I bought it from Leandra at Ally Pally. Wasn't sure about the size to begin with but now I don't know why I was worried.....it's fab!!!
I started with some odds and ends of paper and book pages, glued down with some matt medium. Added some Grunge Paste through a stencil and when it was dry, painted a layer of Stone Fresco Finish paint to blend all the elements together.

Lots of layers of paint and Grunge Paste. Had a play with my new Inktense pencils for the first time too.
You can probably spot some Ellen Vargo stamps and some of my stencils.
Hopefully, it won't be quite so long before I have something crafty to share with you.
