Time Flies Journal page

My how time is flying past at the moment . As we are approaching the end of another month already It only seems like yesterday it was Christmas.
My page was made using Distress ink , Peacock Feathers, Crushed, Olive & Dylusions Crushed Grape spray ink.
I usually use a green ink pad for my leaves but decided on using a different colour & I think I like the look of the leaves using Tim Holtzs Walnut Stain Distress ink .

Whats on your Work desk Wednesday 351

Its a  chilly start to a Wednesday morning here.
On my desk today I have my two Crop-A-Dial  which I've been using to make holes in some tin pots & then setting the large eyelets I've had laying about in my craft room.  I plan on putting some small plants in the finished pots .& will probably find a home for them on the kitchen window sill .
If you would like to find out more about What's on your Work Desk Wednesday pop over to Julia's place where you'll find all the details.

Scrapbook Challenge

I've taken part in the weekly challenge over at
Alison set this weeks challenge wanting us to use Vellum, Patchwork, & stitching.
I've made a 8x8 page .
I went through my scraps bag to see what papers I could use from there. I managed to find few pieces that match the photo.
I've done Faux stitching added brads , gromlet & a rub on  word.
The only thing I didn't use was vellum because that's something I've never had.
Now if you fancy a challenge to get you back into scrapbooking & get you motived again just hop over to uk scrappers where you'll find plenty to do.

Scrapbook page (us)

It's not to often that someone takes a picture of me & hubby together as I'm normally the one holding the camera snapping away making sure I've got a photo of everyone else.
So its been nice recently doing layouts using photo's of us.
My latest layout using paper from Echo park & 7 Gypsies .
Boarder stickers by Crate paper & Chipboard shapes by K& Co .
The little blue dots are what is left behind from the blue scalloped boarder sticker under my photo.

February Tag Swap

Another swap I take part in is the monthly tag swap over on
The theme for February is Hearts.
I liked  how Dylan Reavley colours her tags or journal pages then would mask an area, then cover everything in black acrylic paint , then highlight with a white pen.
So i'd had a go with these techniques for my tags for the swap. I'm pleased with how they turned out.
to finish of my tags I added some embellishments.

February Postcard Swap

The theme for February's postcard swap at is a romantic song title or use some lyric's within a song .
My song title is A Jar Of Hearts, by Christina Perry.
I've used acrylic paint on my back ground & a Tim Holtz heart stencil .
Dylusions stamps for my boarder & the hearts hanging down on the left.
The Jar is an Artistic stampers stamp which was first stamped onto some card & them stamped inside the hearts. Once the hearts & the back ground inside the jar was coloured I cut the jar out & stuck it to my postcard.
