Grungy Monday 10 : Distress Ink-o-Rama
This weeks Grungy Monday challenge hosted by Linda at Studio L3 really put me in a spin ........... distress inks .......... anything you like .......... hmmm. I had NO idea what to do there being so many things I could do, so I've been thinking about it all week.
We have had the most beautiful day in Shetland today - after some pretty horrible weather these last few weeks. So after finishing off all the planting in the garden I thought I would find a nice sheltered spot and have a rest. I found a great spot behind the greenhouse out of the wind and piled my tray with Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Antique Linen and Shabby Shutters, a water pen, an old tile and some post it notes. I had stamped the Rose Fairy before I started and made a mask. And I just painted.
It was absolutely delightful sitting amongst the flowers (well leaves, the flowers are not out yet!), bees humming, lovely warm sunshine, doing something I love.
So this is my offering. Not particularly spectacular, but I enjoyed every minute of it!
And thank you Tim Holtz for giving us all these wonderful things to play with. Do pop along to his blog and to Studio L3 for some fantastic inspiration. Everyone seems to have had a great time playing this week.
Have a good weekend everyone.
PS Warm in Shetland is about 13 degrees!
PPS I have finally cured the "posting" problem - Google Chrome. Thank you Sioux - it worked!
