During my trip round the North East I managed to fit in a trip to Graphicus - so many temptations, but I was quite good and only bought one small stamp set of sayings and a few lovely things. Shame no workshops that week.

A the end of the week I went to a workshop at Art from the Heart in Harrogate. We made a little book from a paperchase diary. We glued, gessoed, daubed and stamped. Was great fun and best of all I rediscovered the joy of doodling. Here are a couple of pages, they are a bit rough but I like that as they don't look too nice to use.

I have been playing around with similar techniques today on a tag and in a small book. I also used masks and red ink to give an extra dimension - looks orange on photo.

As you can see I was a bit heavy handed with the black ink, but that doesn't matter I can use it as a line for writing along.

Messy is best for writing over, otherwise I am afraid of spoiling the page!

This a small card I made with the bottom bit of the tag.

Best wishes, Anne
