Think Monday - Think ATC - Stone

Once again I am participating in the TMTA challenge right at the end of the week but at least it is something I just made (even if it is from bits previously stamped!!).

The challenge was to use "stone" somewhere on your ATC so I have used a favourite stone angel image from a limited edition Juxtaposed stamp collection and the tiny text in the background is a Julie van Oosten Collections stamp. I'm having a personal revival thing with metal duct tape too and I am enjoying covering the back and wrapping my ATC edges with it so expect to see more of the same for a while! The cardstock background is painted with a Golden acrylic wash.

I've come down with a cold this weekend which is bit of a poo seeing as I have managed to stay pretty healthy so far this winter. Having a thick head is not conducive to concentration or focus it seems, as I discovered this morning that I left the lid off my black gesso when I stopped painting yesterday afternoon. That's bit of a poo too as it was a lovely consistency before and is quite sludge-like this morning!

I'll probably do another post later today as I have a whole day today to create! Such bliss even with a thick head. Plus the sun is shining brightly even though it is very cold and that always makes me feel a lot better! Mind you it was VERY cold wandering around our town's monthly Trash N'Treasure market this morning.

Poor you!!! Big hug and hope you feel better soon. The angel image is gorgeous! Hope you've been able to create despite a 'thick head'!

I never think of Aussie being cold at all. There's nothing better than a bit of creativity to take the mind off feeling under the weather.
