Whilst out hunting for a photographs for this week's colour splash I came across this image by trunkguy.
He had been playing with a colour splash app on his iphone (so jealous, I so wanted an iphone!!) and produced this image. I fell in love with the colours, and I just happen to love Acquilega too - gorgeous, gorgeous flowers!
This week the design team were all sent the above set of stamps from Mark's Finest Papers. They are clearly designed for card making (or tags) so I decided to challenge myself - was it possible to use stamps such as these for a journal page?
I'm happy to say it is :) I played with Black Soot and Aged Mahogany distress inks, stamping words repeatedly for texture then individually to show what the page is about. It is good to be thankful for all the great things we have in our lives so I added a weeny envelope to the page so I can place 'thankful' tags in it. This is my A5 Daler Rowney sketchbook.
We'd love to have you join us over in the cafe this week. You don't have to make a card, or even a journal page, it can be aNYTHiNG you've made in the colours of the week - black, white and a splash of burgundy!
We've even had cakes lol ;)
There's some fabulous inspiration on our designers' blogs, so head over there for a lookie :)
Then stop by the cafe to link up your piece so we can all head on over to see your work :)
