The day after the day before....

Yesterday my head was still full of our lovely day at the Stamp Mecca on Sunday. I think we all need days like that here and there to top up our energy levels and just make us feel good.
Yesterday was a busy day. I did more work on my little chest of drawers, but am not yet happy how it looks, so will have to work on it some more. I had my doctor's appointment, too, and it's a drive of about an hour each direction, but at least there wasn't too much traffic. Then I went for a walk with B's doggy Emily, and on the way back it was so windy that her ears were flying in the wind; it looked so funny! She's a dear little thing. I did my shopping on the way home, so by the time I arrived here I was hungry and thirsty and needed a big mug of coffee to revive me. Anyway, after all that I didn't feel like doing too much of anything else, so I just did my journal pages while watching TV. I used the tickets from Sunday, and some of the visiting cards and other things I collected there, and made a collage. I used some gessoed tissue paper on the right page, to cover up two ink spots which had seeped through from my extravagant use of ink on the page before. The hand is mine, I drew round my hand on a scrap of patterned paper, and fixed it with gesso too. The background was a quick one, made by blending ink over some sequin waste. I made sure that the date for the next stamp fair is on the page, too, and an invitation to another one in Holland. And every time I look, I will be reminded of our lovely day out.






So that was all for today. Hope a great day, take care and thanks for visiting!
