Wow another week has flown by...
Cannot believe its nearly July!!
Its been a funny old week here in the UK
Ive been doing my best to avoid all the news/social media feeds, as its been full on reporting about Britain leaving the EU.
(Its been really hard to know who or what to believe anymore)
but the decision has finally been made,
so I guess we just have to Keep calm and drink GIN!
So while Ive been sipping on my
extra Large gin,
I got to work on creating a layered piece using lots of original letters and envelopes
I started with a first an old air mail letter. I added a photo from the Tim Holtz Photo Booth collection, then set about adding lots of stitches.
I added another layer of Kraft card cut from the Sizzix Mixed Media thinlits and added some splatters of distress paints.
I just love the Correspondence stamp set (CMS225) its full of great images....I stamped a few of them using Archival ink.
Plus I always love to add some Idea-ology, along with my own vintage finds....
I added the union jack, I guess as my own way of marking this weeks topical events....
(It does not however represent any of my own political views, parties or sides, like I say just my own personal way to mark the event)
The vintage file box was a great find in a junk shop.....just wish there had been a couple more!
Right I think my glass needs topping up!!More gin please!!
As always feel free to leave a comment,
I appreciate each and every one!
Have yourselves a really lovely weekend
bye for now
