Up with the lark this morning I decided to get it together to fill this fabulous frame set that had been hanging around empty for a couple of months. The frame was one of my most treasured charity shop finds and cost me only £1.20 - bargain! Its very weathered looking which I love. It really does look like its been unearthed from a corner of the attic somewhere. So, feeling inspired but still half asleep I made it into the playroom and went for it.
I made my background by spraying Glimmer Mists in Gingerbread, Autumn Leaves and Burnt Red onto a piece of crumpled tissue divider in a photo album. I put my white card under the tissue, closed the book and when I opened it again, voila! I decided not to make this difficult so, once I'd chosen just the right shade of brown ink to stamp in (a brown from the Colorbox Fresco assortment) it was just a case of selecting 5 images to stamp. This didn't take long as I have a selection of favoured stamps which I can always lay my hands on instantly. The images don't necessarily link but I decided not to over complicate things by trying to make that happen. This took me about an hour and a half and I really like the result which is already up and hanging on the wall. And the best bit was, by the time I'd finished, it was time to get up. Yawn.
