My Crafting Journey.....

I really am on the road with my crafting Journey
I am having an absolute ball right now
I have been setting myself a target this weeks is too use some old stash and not buy more
I know I brought an image that was blogged yesterday but it was 50% off and it was not really for me and it was incredibly cute :-)
hmmmm I have also purchased this week a white ink pad, but in my defense I really did need it ...
Today's project see's another Julia Spiri image
This one is a freebie if you join there VIP club
It's called Funny Hat - I wasn't sure what she was going to get turned into but I was immidatly in love and need to colour her up

I ended up making a canvas . Im so drawn towards purple's at the moment so much so , I even looked it up to see what it said, I was pretty impressed at how accurate it was and pretty much sums me up.

Having either purple or violet as your favorite color means you are sensitive and compassionate, understanding and supportive, thinking of others before yourself - you are the person others come to for help - being needed motivates you but sometimes people take advantage of you. You are a gentle and free spirit.

I coloured her using Distress Inks 
I took some purple papers and gently ripped them , dusted round the edges and adhered to my canvas board.

I adhered funny hat
Rippped a few randomn word papers (the top one being from Waitrose weekend newspaper) funny enough it was an article about missing mojo and they reccomend Sports, I think the editor maybe a comedian

I used my Andy Skinner mixed media stencil (very old stash never used before) and stenciled Journey because thats how I feel , and I also feel that this little lady is on a journey too
I also used the same stencil for number 152 and the arrow.
**stop press** More Old stash alert ~ I used my Tim Holtz Crackle stencil for the edging
I then used a star stencil (no name but old again) and also some sequin waste. The stencils were all done using Distress Oxide Inks

I punched a few circles and made the little flowers and added some punched hearts
Topped with a few sequins to finish

So funny how we have to justify our crafting purchases, I do that all the time, especially with my husband!! And the person described who likes purple sounds exactly like me too, especially the thinking of everyone else first and people taking advantage of me....must use purple more often!! Your canvas is fantastic and I absolutely love the image you used, it definitely fits our 'Playful' theme. Your colouring skills are incredible and I can see how much time and love you put into this project with all the details. Its a wonderful project and I'm so glad you shared it with us at TIME OUT!
