Journal Page - Scrolls Work

Hi, if you read my post below you will know I am very lucky to have been chosen to be a Guest Designer of Scrolls Work for the month of May. The lovely owner of Scrolls Work Jacque Heaton, sent me a load of stamps to play with and see what I could come up with, thank you Jacque.

This week am showing  a Journal Page I made using all SW stamps, Acrylic Paints, Gold and Red Paint Dabbers, String and Tissue.  I do so love that boy stamp, such a great expression.

In the next three weeks I shall show an Altered Childrens Book,  some Tags and a Demonstration on Squishing Acrylics - Huge Fun so hope you will join me.

On a personal level I am totally worn out from 4 days of sightseeing, tried to work it out last night as to how many miles we had walked; at a rough guess 30 miles........no wonder my poor little legs ache.  Martin said think how healthy you will be...........grrrrrrrrrrrr     Am staying in today, am NOT going anywhere.........lol  Hope you all have a lovely day, take care, Hugs Annette x

Love the journal page Netty. It's great to be asked to do some designing and you have certainly done a great job. Hope your aches and pains soon go away, just enjoy the day relaxing inside, throw in a few hot drinks and a bit of crafting and I'm sure it will work wonders!!! Sue x

I do love these little guys! Great page Annette! Sad to hear of Scrolls Works end. I have only ordered once from them, thanks to my blogger friends showing their creations with them! Will most certainly have to order again before they close!

Absolutely fantastic piece of artwork Nettie and the colours and stamps just gorgeous. A real shame about Scrolls Work closing too as their stamps are lovely.
Hope you recover from all the walking soon, I know what that's like as we did tons of walking on Jersey and it made me very tired and full of aches as well.
Hugs, Fliss xx
