colourmepositive week 28

This week’s quote was from Lao Tzu, so really appealed to me, and the challenge was to add to the page somewhere you’d like to go. Back to Dubai of course! I used Dylusions and Dina Wakley paints, a StencilGirl Stencil and some Tim Holtz stencils, plus my (very) old favourite MM foam stamps.

In my unPlanner

I have received some really cool papers and embellishments lately, thanks to an ATC swap I am part of. I tend to hoard things I am sent, but have realised I should just use and enjoy them (paraphrased wise words of Michelle Ward!). With that in mind, the flamingo background is a paper napkin from Dawn, and the Listen token is also from a swap. The quote from Barack Obama is out of a second hand book I bought recently.

Stampotique Black & White challenge

I have started following Stampotique on Facebook as I have a couple of their stamps, and decided to join this week’s Black & White only challenge #251. My first attempt was going well, until I relaised I had coloured the bat using pinks and mauves! This card was my second attempt.

I used my Stampotique Pedro stamp, a StencilGirl stencil and Dylusions paint for the background, SimonSaysStamp black card and a Tim Holtz sentiment. Pedro’s eyes and boots are finished with Glossy Accents.

Feeling fortunate

This page in my UnPlanner was inspired by a couple of conversations I had this week around my career and life in general. We live in a very ordinary house in a scruffy street in an ordinary town – and I love it. Tony and I have been together 24 years, married 21, and are as much in love as ever. We rely on each other and prefer each other’s company; we don’t need to be in the same room, we’re happy to just kind of orbit round each other. Our lives aren’t flash or full of adventure, but we know how fortunate we are.
