3 Things......

Oooh there is a gorgeous challenge at White with 1 at the moment ....white with pastels and masking :)

I have been using a lot of primary colours of late.....probably because it's the middle of our Summer and those strong colours just zing!!

So it was a joy to be able to pull out some softer tones.

this photo is about 40 years old in Cyprus and is of me and my two younger brothers!!
I am gutted that the sun chose not to come out to play my page does look somewhat dull :( It isn't in real life, but sadly you won't get to see that!!

The Studio Calico veneers represent the things we were doing at the time. Riding our bikes, sailing at weekends and flying back to England for a holiday with my Grandparents.

Lots of layering. I pulled out various sheets from a selection of my 6 x 6 pads. There is a journalling card tucked into a glassine bag.

This lovely stamp was hiding in a will be coming out to play again! The 'wordy' ones are the usual culprits i.e. Ali Edwards and MME :)
Thanks for popping in today,
