Me & You

Good morning all.

Another lovely day yesterday weatherwise...just not very productive! Every time I set off to do something I was interrupted by something or someone else!! Did manage a little time in the craft room but need to go back today and finish what I was doing....trying to get all my March DT work done so I can concentrate on playing.

Scraping in at the last minute with my February page journal!

Pages were roughly painted with gesso then I used aquatints to paint. I then went looking for my heart stencil only to discover I don't actually own one! We'll have to do something about that me thinks!
Stamps are mainly from Unity Stamps with the little background features from a Penny Black set, stamped in love letter memento, black archival and picked raspberry DI. Pink hearts are dies are from Memory Box. You die is from Simon says Stamp. I finished the pages by misting them with water then letting some of the drops run...not sure this shows up very well on the photo though.

Challenges entered:
Unruly Paperarts - heartfelt
Country View Challenges - drips and drops
Simon Says Stamp Monday - anything goes
That's Crafty - be my Valentine
