October is Breast Cancer awareness month and everything is turning pink as a result. Canvas Corp very kindly sent members of the Crew a little goody bag of pink papers, pretty bits and paints to create something to inspire and motivate others as well as help to bring this issue to the front and keep the awareness going.
The contents of my goody bag were gorgeous, all pink, frilly and down right cute. I had the idea to create a canvas of some sort to hang above the desk so after a bit of thought and a cup of tea I decided to just go for it and see what came out.

“Messy Fun Friday” is the phrase adopted by my good friend Clare Brown after we spent the morning creating a journal page together via What’s App. We had such a good time creating together and getting messy it was almost as good as having her with me in the studio.

Call me nosy but I love to see the photo’s people bring with them to put in their book project.

Some days are better than others as far as inspiration is concerned but today I’ve been on a roll. So far I’ve completed two projects, one of which I’ve posted out for Craft Stamper, taken step photo’s, uploaded them, started the writing and ordered the materials for workshop kits next week. Time for a cup of tea I think.
This is what we’ll be making next week, a mini album made totally from transparent acetate pages. I think it’s pretty neat.
