Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Journal Time and Random Thoughts

Tidied the craft room yesterday, always a bad move, because when everything is neat and tidy I don't know what to do or where to start. But I decided to mess it all up again with Claudine's paints and do a page for my journal. I have been following Kate Crane's 3 part Tutorial in Craft Stamper and have also just taken delivery of a book called 'Journal Spilling' It's an interesting challenge, to try and realise and remember that no one has to see, let alone like or approve of what you are doing. With this is mind I gave myself a set of 'rules', Georgina obviously took what I was trying to do on board, because she was doodling (or as they call these days, doing 'Random Stuff' and she came up with the words above. Shame she wasn't a few mins earlier as I would have added her words to my 'rules' - but hey she got her own page!

So here are my Rules and I will try to follow them. The facing page is the back of the beeswax experiment, which was a piece of a jigsaw. - click on the picture if you would like to read the rules

Oh .... and you know what I was saying about cards, and not making them. Well I had to make an exception for Mr Bessie on Valentines Day didn't I - but ssshhh don't tell him cos its a complete secret and neither he or Mrs Bessie have a clue it was from me........ you can tell my DH though, cos I gave him exactly what he gave me - zilch, its a mutual agreement. I love him everyday!


I take it all back about my DH and Valentines day...
I have just been brought tea and toast
