I am perfect just the way i am!

Here is my new journal page using dylusions and octopode factory stamps. 

I started off putting gesso on the background and then wiped some pink paint over it with a baby wipe. After that i added some more colours, did some stencling added abit of bottle  lids stamped. I then stamped some images straight onto the page whilst i stamped others onto a separate page and then added them on later.

"I am perfect just the way I am" the eyes represent people looking and judging me.

After stamping my images i coloured them using pro markers for the girl and spray inks for everything else.

I havent wrote on it yet but i will do that tonight or tomorrow.

Pottering around the house today, tidied my craft room abit. Going to Hoover soon then maybe finish my journal page off.

Derek's operation has finally done him some good. He can put weight on his foot again and can walk. The nerve pain has gone. He seems abit more positive at long last!! Been waiting for this day for a LONG time. Glad he's finally doing better.

Only got around to making one card today and that was for Karens birthday.

I'm also in the middle of a project I want to get finished off too.

Oh well had a good morning so far. Kids are in school and I've been sorting out some of my old "don't fit me anymore" clothes and am happy to report I can fit into most of my size 14 pants :) am really happy.

Need to worker harder with the tops tho as I don't like tops clinging to my fat belly, lol.

I'll drag my size 12's out at the end of this month but I doubt they'd go near me still but it's something to work towards!

Having a little tidy up then I night do some crafting xx
