at last - some me work done

Don't you just love the cover of my new Moleskine. I bought it in Holland in February and thought I would never use it but well you know - it has been stroked and admired loads so off came the cellophane and this is what I have been working on in spare moments...did I say that??? I never have spare moments!!! oh well!

here is the inside front cover complete with doodling and a little watercolouring to try to disguise the marks left by those Dylusion inks on the next page. The little campervan was already there with some words which I have incorporated. I am quite pleased with this but I like the next two pages even more ....

- more Dylusions sprays - you would think I loved these wouldn't you!! well I do! and some heat embossing and stamping (isn't she great) a bit of writing and doodling and da!da! its done.
I also love my watercolours - they are made by Lyra and are like wax crayons. They have the most intense colour and are so creamy to use. I have had these for years and they never seem to get any smaller although the blue one melted with the heat here...

My other new best friends are these little beauties - a foam spreader thingy which applies gesso just beautifully and two gelly roll pens from Sakura that seem to write perfectly on any painty or inky surface.

This afternoon we drove to Benidorm to buy some bags for the shop and stopped for a coffee on the way home at Albir. There were people in the sea and lying on the beach.

Today's date, time and weather and yes it was 36 degrees at 15.49 Phew!

Bye for now

Sue, those Sakura pens sure are great for writing on most everything. Could you keep me a set? I will call in and collect them ASAP. Melva

LOVE your new moleskine, it's gorgeous. Yup, we all love the new Dylusions ink sprays :-)
Think of us in our winter tights and boots while you're strolling along the beach front won't you?!
