Neil Walker's footsteps and cover the front of my journal. Using a pack of Tando Creative Twinchies which are 2ins square, which I also cut down to !inch and 1 by 2 inches . I got out some very old ink pads from Colour box, blended etc then stamped in Archival ink. Images are from Lynn Perrella I have had for years, plus a couple from Graphicus now Chocolate Baroque. Then it was practising the triple embossing, trying not to burn my fingers, plus I edged in Cosmic shimmer embossing as well. Still have a couple of squares to do, but need to get some more to finish the front then on to the back. Hope all you at there are having a great holiday, wishing you a Happy New Year.

There I am sitting on a pouf hemming some curtains, watching the rain come down, thinking what day is it.....Ahhhh its Wednesday, run upstairs take a pic of my desk as of 11.30am this morning.
Somewhat better than last week, more organised. Card on the left is based on a card done by Liesbeth Fidder in the November issue of Craft Stamper. On the right is another one I have done and the middle is one I'm creating for the last 9 cards I need to do. I tend to make a template on a tag first to see how it will work. I think I will be changing the trees from white to gold flakes on a black background to give my impact. If you want to see other desks hop over to Julie's Blog for all the T+C's. Wishing all my followers a Happy Christmas and peaceful New Year :).

I have done journal pages before but seemed to get stuck, so decided to join Neil Walker's class at the Craft Barn on Sunday to see how a professional does it. Had a great time with my friend Karin and finished with some pretty good results. Green page was the first, randomly placing Distress stains together and merging with tissue adding water. 2nd again with DS but with the added stencilling as well.

Had a play today, away from trying to catch up with the the Christmas things.
I decided to limit myself to 3 colours plus white. the tag base is a combination of Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo and Walnut stains distress inks. Stamped with words from Darkroom doors, pines needles from Tim Holtz , plus trees which have been embossed in white. Dies again from Tim Holtz and ribbon to tie all together.
I'm entering the tag onto Fashionable stamping Challenge #36 To Die For.
