She believes.

This is a page I did in my Play Journal while away in the caravan recently.
I always take  a box of bits and pieces, the odd scraps that you cannot bear to throw away, some free papers from craft magazines as well as stamps and inks.
So this is one of my efforts that just happens to fit the new Challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show called Hey Girl.
The background is a free paper, over stamped with  a variety of stamps and extra blue shading using distress inks. The girl was stamped onto book print and is by Sam Poole, pieced paper for her dress, the quote also is  from the same series.

Thank you for stopping by I always appreciate your comments.


  1. Just gorgeous! Love the depth you've created in this piece. The colours work so well together.
