Hello Hello I'm Back Again!!

....and what have they done to Blogger while I've been gone!! Honestly one week off with a poorly computamabob and everything changes!
This is in my Moleskine, and hurrah I've got past page 1 and it's all still intact. The background has been made with Pan Pastels, using just 3 colours 'cos I havn't got many. The old me would have put a 'yet' on the end of that, but having looked round a Uni with my youngest on Saturday I'm on such a spending ban, and I think I really mean it this time. Not only will he come out of it thousands in debt, but Neil and I may have to sell body parts too!!
Anyhoo, I've used my new Stampotique Alice stamps on this (don't get me started on how long it took Parcelforce to deliver these) lots of stencils for the flowers and leaves, and Pink Paislee rub on's for the silvery bits.
I'm entering this into the following challenges
The Altered Alice - Splendidly Dressed
Stampotique - Oodles of Doodles
Pan Pastels - Add A Flower 

Thanks very much for looking x

  1. Fabulous pages Sue and you don't need many colours to achieve great effects with the PPs, a great job.

  2. Wonderful work - love the humour in it and you did well with three colours, lol. I'm resisting, up to now and swearing I'll use up what I have before I buy any new medium - we'll see. I feel for you re the Uni - it's getting so tough to give our kids an education!! Best of luck with your resolution :-)

  5. Fabulous! Love the pages you have created. I have so far resisted pan pastels. My head is saying too expensive but I drool over them on the net frequently! 3 colours might be a good idea...

  13. Looking great! Lovely background and LO. And yes, it is hard with children in that age - very expensive. We can only give them what we have and can give and hope that they make the best out of it. Good luck! ( and yes, I love to work with PP aswell...)Lena
