Morning, happy Sunday & happy Autumn Equinox. Yep, it’s the first day of Autumn, season of mists & mellow fruitfulness. From the train yesterday, I saw a tree that was a blaze of colour, would have loved a photo of it. Anyway, on to other matters.
It was time for a new guest designer on the PaperArtsy blog this week; Joanne Wardle is the queen of Clean and Simple & her cards/projects are always beautifully composed. As someone who can’t seem to stop throwing everything but the kitchen sink at her projects, I definitely envy Joanne.
I was determined to have a go this week, but I don’t have any of PA’s Halloween stamps, so I used what I had.
I coloured the images with watercolour pencils & used London Bus, Inky Pool & Smoked Paprika frescos.
I spent yesterday in London, visiting the Royal Academy in Piccadilly in the morning, where I saw all four of their current exhibitions; Australia, Mexico; A Revolution in Art, Richard Rogers RA – Inside Out & Sir Hugh Casson PRA – Making Friends. All four were excellent. Then I spent the afternoon at the Big Stamping & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace. Here’s what I bought. I had to keep to a strict budget, but couldn’t resist four of the new fresco colours & I had been wanting the reverse chicken wire stencil for ages.
It was great to see everyone at the PA stand, where Leandra & Lin spent the day demoing up a storm. I didn’t take a single photo, but if you want a flavour of what the day was like, visit Helen’s blog post HERE.
Thanks for visiting, until next time,
Love & light
