Craft Barn Q and L.





Where did the last 2 weeks go.....    yet again - last minute entry from me into the Craft Barn  Q and L Challenge.

The choice of words were Unique or Fame.

Having spent a week driving myself silly humming the theme song from the Fame series (I go back further than the movie LOL ). I chose Unique, search and found the quote I wanted to use then thought .....


I started by altering some strips of old projects and stamping them , tore an old information medication sheet, and scraps of paper left from other project and stuck them on my journal page.

I then painted green and yellow acrylic paint onto the page.

On the top right I wanted to stencil some blocks but the precious Blue Azure decided to leak so I did some Doodling !!


I am very lucky to now own a lot of face stamps and enjoyed getting lots of them inky !!


I stamped my largest Inovative stamp onto tissue paper twice and covered 2 of the pages corners. I finished doodling the edges of the page.

My DD kindly wrote out my quote onto Newspaper (while I peeled veg for tea).

The quote is by Margaret Mead " Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else"  .

Enjoy the hot weekend if you are visiting from the UK and thanks for stopping by  :)

Visiting from The Craft Barn – Ooh, what a lot of awesome face stamps you have. They always look magnificent unadorned, I think. I love the background and your doodles are a great save. Your DD has lovely writing and I like that quote very much :D

You have a fabulous entry. I adore what you did with the tissue and how you transposed the faces. I bet you have a LOT of face stamps, because these all show how unique each stamped face can be. Really enjoyed this page, the lovely colors, and the quote.

BTW, I've also had my most expensive paint tip over and run out all over my desk. At least I hope you were able to use (or mop up) all your ink.
