Another double page spread in my A3 journal Men in a Box. This page started life as a mop up page, I am really pleased how it turned out. I had mopped up some orange and blue paint at some stage and yesterday I sprayed through stencils with  Dylusions ink spray in Navy blue, the chicken wire stencil I sprayed with Dylusions Amber. I stamped here and there using Archival coffee and a Tim H stamp. The borders are stamped in Archival Cobalt blue and again using Tim's border stamp. You may think the magazine image is too near the top of the page but I made a big mistake with the top border so needed to cover my sloppy stamping. I have placed strips of Washi tape here and there, stamped white circles and used an old credit card to make some white splodges. When I saw the magazine image I knew straight away what quote I could use with it. Hope you like my page.

Hi everyone, hope you are all good. Last Friday was our monthly play day and I chose the project which I found in one of the Somerset magazines called Workshop. Dina Wakley features a number of times in this mag and this was one of her step by step projects. When I saw "The Tag Art" I thought to myself that I would really like to have a go at this but luckily all the other ladies liked it too and decided it would be our project for this month. A big thank you to Dina for the easy to follow step by step instructions and for giving us a fantastic play day, we had lots of fun.

I really do love apples and they are good for my cholesterol levels and being a teacher (was) what could be more appropriate as a journal page than "an apple for the teacher". I created this page in my large A3 journal   I know I am still trying to fill this journal but it is a long process especially as I don't like this journal, could tear some pages out I suppose but my OCD wont allow it. Hope you like the page I do.
