Tuesday 7 August 2012


My intentions yesterday  were to tidy the craft desk. Well  this idea  went out the window quite easily when I   picked up my play journal,  found an unused coloured page that had been    masked  and sprayed with ink.  It also looked like I had blotted a few stamps on it as well. A pile of pre stamped images under a box, from previous projects, just had to be used.
. I remembered that the new Challenge over at Artful  Times was Mona Lisa.

 A quick search soon found my Mona stamp, so here is the resulting collage pages.
I did add a bit of sparkle for the cake frosting.
Can you see she has her eye on those cakes.

On the left she is looking a bit green, to much cream no doubt..
Background sprayed with Dylusions Fresh Lime ink, the Rose was stamped with Mowed Lawn distress ink then the flowers were painted  over with glossy accents. Mona is a stamp from Hero Arts, I cannot remember when it was last used.
Quick update, I can now see the surface of my desk, so I did make some progress.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.
