Back with good news

Back from my first WI of 2013 and I have lost 31/2 lbs this week :) I am thrilled to bits! Most losses were as good as mine too which was great for the group

Didn't have time to post this earlier. I have tried to kind of do art journaling  (messy play yuck!!!) Really isn't my cup of tea but used gesso on the album pages.( I have removed the binding now so can move the pages around and bind it again at the end of the year) Then I used distressing inks and pearl mist and played. I was very distressed myself at the state of my hands at the end of 'playing' and wasn't too happy with the end results........It would have been easier to have found some pretty paper!!! Any way if my friend Shirley reads this,  I followed my little distressing book and you would have been proud of me :)
I then tried stamping some Tim Holz stamps on the paper which of course one page is covered up by photos ( a good job as the chicken wire wasn't successful LOL!!)

The pages are actually the same colours but I took the photos with the light on, we have had a light on most days as the days are so dark and grey!!


  1. Well congratulations, Lynne.
    I like your crafting experiments !

  2. Lynne, I am so excited by how much we are all doing, I think it is the weekly challenge that lets us think about the prompt longer, and wow the art journalling.. Love it..and like me, it is hard when you get out of your comfort zone but only til you are converted and love the new way! Xxx

  3. Oh congratulations Lynne, fantastic news :)

    Great that you had a go at art journaling, perhaps we will all have got the hang of it and enjoy inky hands by the end of the year :)

    Good Luck with the weight loss this week, I will be cheering you on form here. xxx

  4. great news about the WI, and the art journalling looks good, maybe you will enjoy the more you do?? :)
