A fab journalling day.....

.....was had at The Stamp Attic today with Sarah Anderson, Journalling 3, in which we made little books to put inside our journal, and decorated envelopes, and generally had a fantastic messy time!
First we made a 'short pants' book (geddit?) from a page which was sprayed with Colorwashes using masks and stencils, into which we put even smaller books, and then we decorated envelopes to put them in. We also had a go at different styles of writing, and then made tags using yet more colorwashes and paint dabbers.




























We decided to write lists on the tags, so we each thought of a title (Fave film, thing that most annoys you, most overrated celebrity - anything you like, really) and all ten of us in the class wrote on each others lists.













Finally, I liked my scrap paper so much, I decided to keep it, so that I can cut it up to make more tags.....
