I do love June sunshine, it's so warm and just seeps into your body and soul. I had a great week, my girlies came to stay and Daisy is getting on so well. She is so interested in everything around her. Much to the delight of her uncle she loves giraffes.
and she loves the play bus we have here.
On Wednesday I took the day off work to join my blogging buddy Brenda of bumblebees and butterflies for her Dylusions spray inks workshop. It was such fun and yes very messy...we sprayed into pizza boxed which made great sense as those vibrant colours have the potential to get everywhere.
We made a series of "techniques" tags and worked through 11 different techniques. These are a few of the 18 tags I created. The techniques ranged from ghosting
We then made our own 2 tags using any of the Ty techniques we had covered.
I chose inks which are not my typical colours and went out of my comfort zone. I spritzed them onto my tag. I made a ghost copy and added elements to both the tags. I added some texture using distress paint through a stencil and then added some stamped elements by Lynn Perrella, using black archival ink. I stamped a very apt and then went over some parts of my tag with doodles using a white pen which you can see here
Here are the 2 tags
I actually prefer the light one on the left and I would like to enter the one below into the following challenges
Loves Rubberstamps add some doodling
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge arty stamps
My Mum's Craft shop Ink it up
Crafty Catz anything goes
Party Time Tuesdays anything goes

You will also have noticed a Dylusions creative journal in my photos. We had great fun making an inky spread in that too and I will share that with you in another post soon. Thanks Brenda for a delightful Dylusions Day.
I am back out in the garden again today planting up my pots for the summer...the bees are humming out there already...bliss. Have a lovely Sunday and week,
Bye for now,
