OK then, here it is:
In a post earlier this week I mentioned how much of the house had been gutted which draws your full attention to the textures of the painted woodwork, bare floorboards, ornate cornices, plastered walls and sections of old wallpaper:
The 'enjoy today' stamp [a Cat's Life Press design available here from 3DJean] is my current 'go to' sentiment stamp and I've been using it on everything - certainly the best £2:00 I've spent in recent weeks.
Finally, I added a 'B' monogram stamp, a Lost-Coast Designs 'Mother Goose' image, and a few flower fairies [both from 3DJean ].
The fairies are ther eto remind me of the Extraordinary Measures exhibition which involved lots of sculpture that played with your sense of scale and which was the reason we went to Belsay Hall in the first place.
I'm really into soft pinks and 'nude plaster' shades at the moment and I'm pleased how I managed to get some of those working through the layout. Plus I also like how the petals around the flower fairies match my hair .... but then I'm easily pleased .....
Thanks for reading today. Tomorrow I had hoped to go for a nice 'rummage' in a big second-hand/ charity shop I've just heard about. But despite having had this cold for a full week now I'm still coughing like a beast; have sticky bloodshot eyes and atrocious posture as my muscles feel like I've had one of those SlenderTone machines stapped to my stomach for the last 7 days! I think I might have to stay inside for fear of scaring the locals.
So, I can't go out, I'll have to live vicariously through you - what've you got planned for the Bank Holiday weekend stretching out ahead of you?
p.s: I heard Belsay Hall's quite nice at this time of year ... ;)
