This is Monday's Post

Last night I couldn't upload pictures again so this is yesterday's post (which was going to be titled "I Feel Special!"):

Joseph left yesterday on a work field trip that means he won't be back until Thursday evening so I treated myself to a little variation from the work day routine and set the alarm for an hour later than usual.

Bad mistake for a Monday! I was rushing around the place instead of leisurely reading my emails with my first cup of tea. Anyway I did quickly log on and wow what a wonderful surprise I had when I saw all those comments as a result of participating in the Wednesday Stamper challenge! It made me feel very special and really helped me get through a busy day at work!!

So thank you to all the lovely people who visit my blog and an extra big thank you for the comments.

The photo tonight is of a postcard I finished yesterday. I am calling it a fabric postcard but I am not sure whether they are "meant" to be made entirely of fabric? Anyway it doesn't matter to me as long as it is fun to make. This one is a piece of gessoed canvas (fabric?), stamped with a large asian script image, coloured with chalk inkpads (direct to canvas), has napkin images and torn asian papers adhered with Mod Podge and black gesso added in select areas. The canvas was then stitched to black felt and backed with black cardstock which was stitched around the edges. The asian coin is made with polymer clay and a Krafty Lady mould. It is painted with acrylics and finished with Pinata Inks.

The beautiful Cream Journal Pages below were created by Kate Palmer, a wonderful Queensland stamper/paper artist. I love the way the pages are created story-style.
