Playing again................

Evening all,

I'm soooooooo lucky that my 2 gorgeous tiddlies play so well together and that I managed to sneak some play time myself!!!!!!!!

Here is another page from my large altered book journal - lots of layers (ha ha ha, I lost count!!) of inky painty fun. No real purpose to the page either other than the total enjoyment of the process - happy days!!

I started by collaging some scraps I had lying around in the kitchen and paper recycling box (naughty mummy sneaked some of Millie's birthday wrapping paper, tut tut!!), lots of layers followed before I added some lettering, doodling and a stamped image. The stamp used is a Prima mixed media doll by Julie Nutting, one of my faves at the moment - this incarnation is the mask that I had used for a previous journal page, I liked it so much that I kept it back to use on another page as she looks just like my hands do when I have been crafting!! I did tart her dress up with some watercolours though!

Lots of space for some journaling when I feel like it too - bonus!!

Ha ha ha ha ha, the above pic shows the 'assault course' my lovelies had built and been playing with while I was sneaking some crafty time. Tee hee you can just see Max poking out of the tunnel at the top of the pic and Millie balancing on some cushions. Much fun and laughter as you can probably imagine, and yes I did have a go!!

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to, your time and thoughts are always appreciated.

Huge hugs

I adore your painted lady. She is swell. And to think she started out as a mask. Waste not, want not. That's my motto.

Had a laugh at the kiddos. They sure created an obstacle course will all the pillows and cushions and tents. What a fun time they (and you) must have had.

BTW, I used one of your tags in one of my ICADs and mentioned your name when I did (grin).

gorgeous pages, love the crushed strawberry and blue colour combo with a hint of soft green. Your layers are perfect I always wonder how you do them so well as I just can't seem to get the hang of it myself. Love the way you have snuck a butterfly in as they are "Painted Ladies" too. Super assault course too, well done to the littlies for giving you a crafting window. BJ

Love when kids create their own worlds around the house. We had a refrigerator box forever in my son's room, the dogs loved to go hide in there too. Fun painted lady, love all the doodles and background layers. xox
