Journal Page - Bloom

Hi all, I can't believe I missed my DT post, should have been up last Sunday (bank holiday weekend) I reckon it was because I worked all the way through lol.  So over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog the challenge this fortnight (finishes this Saturday) is Dies and/or Punches a really easy one.  Because I was so busy finishing the end of year accounts that weekend I decided to do a journal page and I used dies for the leaves and circle die for the flowers, details at bottom of page of what I used :-)
I would like to enter my journal page into the following challenges
                                      Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes
                                      Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Handmade Background




I really enjoyed playing in my journal, this is only my second page lol.  I did find that I had to do the background etc on separate card as when I tried spraying dylusions sprays even though I used gesso, they just saturated the journal, in the end I had to rip loads of pages out.
Right I better be off, I have a few days off so I am doing some household jobs (yuk), nipping mum to town for an hour and then spending the afternoon in my craft room (excited lol).
Happy Crafting
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx

I love the gorgeous, warm colours on this and the effect of the thread around the flower; I'm fascinated by fibres at the moment and thinking of doing some journal work using fibres in some way myself. Good luck with the challenges! xx
