Wake Your Soul

Good morning all.

Well our week of sunny weather looks set to end...it's been quite windy here yesterday evening and rain is forecast for today. Eldest requested a haircut yesterday (his first in about six months), he'll be regretting it now!! He's up in Inverness with some mates for the weekend...three of them set off in a little hatchback with two bikes, 3 skateboards and assorted luggage in beside them!!

We managed to get booked up for next week so we're off on Tuesday for a few days...the cottage is actually in Lancashire but we'll be visiting relatives in and around Kendal whilst there. We were going to take the dog but decided to leave her at home with the  boys this time.

Managed to fit in a little bit of journalling last night, this is the result...my pages for April

The stamps are all from the April SMAK kit from Unity Stamps which arrived earlier this week. Background was made on my Gelli plate with acrylic paints. Stamping is a mix of DI and Archival. The bird was stamped and heat embossed on tissue and applied with gel medium.
