I just got back from the 'Stempel Mekka' craft fair in Hagen, and had a good day out. I wasn't really intending to buy stuff, but some stamps and stencils just jumped at me, and then I had to take them home. I met some blogging buddies from Germany, Silvia (Barnies Baustelle) and Ulrike (Ulkau), as well as some others I have met there a lot of times, including the lovely Linda from Lost Coast Designs.
And I was pleased to see this evening that I am in the designer spotlight at Simon Monday challenge this week, for the textured autumn canvas I made a week back.
This journal page has first been water-coloured and distressed, and then I used a fussy cut photo of Beatrix Potter printed out in Sepia to soften it. I added some tissue tape, and lots of her little creations, also fussy cut. The rabbits have been stamped with the Alice Palace Stamp from CI, and the little birds and the vine are part of a set from Kaiserkraft.

This little back to school notebook is one of my DT pieces for Gecko Galz. I cut a piece of 2 sided cardstock, 4 1/4 x 7" and rounded the corners. I scored 3 1/8" from each end to make the spine. A small note pad, 4 1/8" x 3" was glued onto the right side of the folder. I made a pocket from scraps, 3x2", rounded the top corners, and fixed it with DS tape. I made 2 small tags out of left-over card into tags. For the front cover I used the image SD11 from the schooldays stamp set. The image was fussy cut and glued to some vintage ledger paper from 1924. I varnished it to make it more durable.
We have a 'new' market square here on the other side of the tram lines, and this statue and fountain are in the middle. It's not a statue I like, but recently someone had decorated it, which looked quite funny.
And my fave horse has the last word again....
Have a great Sunday, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by.
