Gotta be a record!!

HEhehehehe...4 posts in one day!!! What the??? Can you tell Im on holidays and hubby is away and the kids are busy doing kids stuff???LOL...major Mummy catch up time!!!

These are my Art Journal entries so far for Ems new Word art journal...

...commit....(journalling is on the back)..this ones pretty straight to the point...because I guess Commitment is something that should be just that..hard, and fast...and not a bit fluffy or soft.

Unlike this one...FEEL. The Kids LOVE this one...its fun to touch.. Lots of bits.


and this is the latest one..."Connect" I converted an envelope..its jst a little commentary on how sad it is there are not so many pens to paper letters anymore...how the romance of receiving a letter is being lost...but at the same time, I celebrate that we can connect with people in so many new ways...email, text, video messaging.,(no to mention the good old blower!!)(oh..phone).TFL!!!

MMMMWWWAAA!

The Lunatic gets some Grungeboard!!

..So this week I got to play with some GRUNGEBOARD! Tim Holtz's new thang...it is amazing.
It smells a lot like a leather lounge, its strong...the "elements" sets have the most beautifully fine detailed flourishes, but they dont rip getting them out, no matter how rough you are...they are bendy..and yet they are so soft to the touch..like suede ...and they are debossed..so there is lots of options fo roughing em up. But the best bit? The hinges!!! Great for all those off the page projects!!!See how those little suckers just wrap around that big fat book!!
Can you see how fine the flourish details are?? and check out the butterfly wings!!! Man..lovin this stuff... more soon...
