Beside the Seaside


So I've been playing with the Sassafras Mix and Mend line that was in my Studio Calico box. It's easy to work with partly because it all matches so you can hack up the papers and mix them, but there also loads of bits and bobs you can cut round so layering is easy peasy lemon squeezy. Lots of detail, minimal time.

This page is kind of based on a page from Shimelle's True Stories class. It's only been two days and already I love this class. Journalling is really important to me and I never think I have enough space to write everything I want. I'd also like to loosen up my writing a little as I tend to get a little bit formal sometimes which is silly. I'd like to write on my pages like I talk or write here, more chatty and diary-esque so this is what I'm going to work on. Anyway, I loved this sketch as there was bucket loads of space of for scrawls. Fabadab. More like this please!

P.S. I set up my broadband all by myself so I have proper speedy internet again which I LOVE and being a bit of a technocrap I feel quite proud of myself.

  4. Well done for the broadband. It's the journalling that you'll most want in decades to come. (I find just a year ago's comments surprising!)
