Journey.

How many of you like me have drawers,shelves, boxes where stuff gets shoved placed carefully 'cos you are going to do something with it later - but then never get round to it and those drawers, shelves and boxes just keep getting fuller and fuller? Well I decided I was going to do something about it 'cos I have all three - drawers, shelves and boxes...........
Now just lately I have have been inspired by a couple of blogs whose work is just fabulous and it has really got crafting mojo working.
One such crafty Goddess is Hels Sheridan and she has a kind of challenge that she sets on a Sunday called 'Sunday Stampers' This week is 'Believe &/or Journey' and this week I think that I have actually produced something worthwhile. This is what it looked like before

It started life as a pretty boring looking book, one that I think I had given to me ages ago and I didn't know what to do with and so threw  oops no placed carefully in recepticles mentioned above - and I don't know if I have made it any better but anyways - please take a look

I used Grungepaper, Distress Ink pads (Brushed Corduroy, Tea Dye, Peeled Paint and Fired Brick) I also used a couple of Brilliance ink pads too, loads of chipboard and some brads. The eagle eyed among you may have noticed that I used my trusty Stampin' Up butterfly punch and I used the polka dot butterfly stamp from Flight of the Butterfly to stamp the petals on the flowers. Oh and the leaves are from the 2 Step Bird punch.
So this piece of work is hopefully launching me on my 'Journey' into the world of all things distressed and grungy! Bye for now - Jacqueline xx.
