Live the life you have imagined ..........
A short post to say I am back from a fabulous holiday cruising the west coast of Scotland - amazing anchorages, wonderful weather (at times!), met some wonderful people and saw some incredible wildlife.
But in particular I wanted to say:
A huge welcome to those of you who started following my blog while I was away. I really appreciate that you want to share my crafting journey. I hope to have some time in the next few days to visit your blogs too.
And a huge thank you to all of you who have been commenting on my scheduled posts while I was away. All your comments were so very much appreciated.
I did manage to have a bit of play last night and early this morning to get back into the way of things! These colours of the sea have been in my head all the time we've been away and I was just itching to ink something!
I covered my tag with torn bits of music and dictionary paper, bits of muslin and some scrim. I added a light coat of gesso before spraying with Glimmer Mists Sprout and Seven Seas (I so love these colours).
I am still on a mission to alter all the white flowers in my stash, so this Prima flower got some watered down Seven Seas around the edges and then sprayed with water.
And the quote was one which was in my head most of the holiday as we were very much living the life we had imagined. We are very lucky.
I had purposefully not taken inks or tags with me this year and I really missed being able to create although I did a lot of knitting instead, which is really much more practical on the boat.
I was pleased that I hadn't forgotten how to do things!!
I was having a month off from the Anything But a Card Challenge Design Team, but Susan has very kindly pointed out that my tag fits perfectly with the current theme which is Summer Fun. There are some fabulous Design Team makes from last week and again this week. Click the link HERE to see all the wonderful makes and the link to the challenge. I hope you join in!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend and hopefully I'll be back to normal visiting blogs and creating early next week. Thanks for looking xxx
