Art Journal Page

Morning and hope you all remembered to put the clocks forward --we have a new "Just for Fun" challenge at A Inky Mess and I made a journal page.A coat of gesso first of all then a couple of Decoart sprays and dripped the green instead of spraying.Stamps are from AALL&Create and the Art stamp from Bee Crafty which was one of four I won last month.The circles were made with a bottle lid dipped in gesso and the green stripes were made with an elastic band wrapped around cardboard and inked.
Think this ended up a little darker than I meantand should have added glossy accents to the light bulbs!

Mini Milk Cartons

Morning and we have a new "Just For Fun" challenge at Crafting With Friends and something different I made up two little die-cut milk cartons I bought from a craft show quite a few years ago which I found whilst looking for a lost die-cut(never found it!!!)The stitched die-cut squares are from The Works,teddy bear stamp was a craft mag freebie and the flower stamp is a Polka Doodle one stamped five times and layered,pearl flower centre from stash and mini bulldog clips from Asda.The cartons are big enough for a Cadburys creme egg.

Will catch up with you all tomorrow as going for tea and having a sleepover at eldest Sons so grandaughters can spend some time with grandsons.
