Golden Journalling




Hello all - just a quick sneak peek today to entice you over to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog...

I've been playing in one of my art journals again, but with a different colour palette (for me) - just for fun.

Mostly I wanted to play with the glorious new Flourish Background, one of the latest releases from The Artistic Stamper... and somehow that set me  off on a new colour journey.

If you've time to hop over and take a look, I'd love to know what you make of it!

You have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by.  Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.
J.M. Barrie

Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognise it as such.

A glorious journal page, Alison. I have been across to the AS to see in more detail and I was not disappointed. It's lovely. xxx

Holy mackerel, Sapphire! Forgive the American colloquialism, but as I am absolutely gobsmacked by your piece, I couldn't help myself! The color is stunning, as is the texture (love all that crackle!), and how you've used that lovely Gibson girl, who I am sure is contemplating something other than what shoes she is is going to wear this evening. I hope whatever she is contemplating is a happy thought. WOW!! xxx Lynn
