Be Yourself

Good morning and happy Friday. It's a new month, so the challenges start all over again at Country View Crafts, and this month's is a very interesting one - Teresa has chosen The Written Word'. Here's my first project (and it's very different from my usual 'stuff')

 I started by gessoing a couple of dictionary pages, then stencilling through one of Olga's lovely AALL and Create stencills.

 Next I added some Distress Ink  with a piece of acetate, dragging the colour to where I wanted it. I used some of the wonderful Tracy
Evans's AALL and Create stamps to add some hearts, and also a threads stamp from 49 and Market. I love to stamp this with  Distress Oxides with the stamping platform 'cos you can get lots of lovely colours and they are always in the right place!

I love these stamps of Tracy's they are just so happy and they make me happy too!
I ended up just using one of the pages. I gave it a few layers of stitching and I just need to decide where I'm going to use it. It's not my usual style at all but I do like it!
I hope you join in with our fun challenge, remember there's a £20 gift certificate up for grabs. Have a happy June, and thanks very much for looking x
