Just Add Ink #320 - Just Add a Sketch
There's a pretty new sketch over at Just Add Ink today. I got to play with my new Jar of Love stamp set and framelits. And I managed to use a couple of the new In Colours! I've played with them a few times now - unsuccessfully, and it's all ended up in the bin. I am having a hard time transitioning this year :o(
My base is the new Flirty Flamingo and I've used a combination of the same ink, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party. Ooooh and some of the pretty new ruffled ribbon. My flowers have been well and truly 'winked' but my pic isn't showing that here unfortunately.
Why don't you play along with the challenge this week? Head over to JAI for some inspiration from the design team. Here's the sketch for you, courtesy of Tina. Nice and clean, don't you agree?
It's been an unusually quieter week here for us. Don't get me wrong, it's always crazy busy but this week didn't seem to have so much of the crazy. Gorgeous Kid was away down the Coast with a couple of mates for a week and only returned yesterday afternoon. It's nice to have him back.
We woke to snow in Canberra on Wednesday morning. It was lovely to see the little flurries in the air but if I'm honest snow doesn't do it for me. We stayed indoors anyway because it was super brisk all day - nice to have the sun shining here and there though. The twins enjoyed some tv time....even the dog and bunny cuddled up inside most of the day lol.
I'm off to Sydney at lunch time to attend a Copic Certification course this weekend. I hope it helps me learn to colour better. I love colouring. It's quite a relaxing therapy and there are oodles of gorgeous images begging for beautiful colour....so be warned, if I learn lots you may well be seeing everything coloured in Copics in the foreseeable future. Too funny!
Righto time to get moving. Have a fabbo weekend and as I've said numerous times over my last few posts I really will be back to show you some New York piccies - there are sooooo many to sort through. No idea how I'm going to get them all into albums....hmmmm Project Life, that's how!
