Hello everyone...

Something I would like a lot more of lately, is in my title, and on my journal page..

This started out as a disaster...

But after a lot of perseverance, stencils, gold and white paint and a few choice words I ended up with this...

I then cut up strips of coloured card and made a couple of lines top and bottom using a gold gel pen.. [a  new one and it is lovely..Sanford uin-ball]

To make some books...and used die cut words to label the books..

Added a coffee pot and cup with saucer and a pocket watch...

I used these chunky big stickers for my title..

A close up of the Tattered Lace cup and saucer and coffee pot..

And there is my journal page all done...

Hope you are all well and happy and thank you so much for stopping is getting very hot here and I am not a lover of the heat AT ALL..never mind, I'm on the countdown to retiring..4 months, 3weeks and I'm going to be a full time crafter..and Netflix watcher and a youtube addict and a professional eater of what ever I want..including chocolate...until my gall bladder tells me otherwise..

See you..
