Journal page and an amazing gift...



After weeks and weeks I finally got round to doing some journaling again.... I had loads of painted and gessoed (how on earth do you spell that??) pages prepared but just never got round to doing anything with them. Well finally, last night I did and here are some photos of the result...




This morning I had a wonderful surprise! A while back I won some candy and look what arrived in the post today...!
Two gorgeous stamps from Vilda stamps and the most beautifully decorated envelope with two lovely tags. The lady who sent them is the wonderful Anne
Kristine. She does incredible work. If you don't know her, go and have a look here

This is quite beautiful - I am going to use it as inspiration for a spread I am doing in my altered book with the theme of Vintage Gypsy. I love the colors you chose and your border and focal image!

God bless.
Tricia

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
