I missed last week due to being away visiting family in Barry (yes, we did go down to Barry Island and I got very excited over seeing some 'Gavin & Stacey' locations!). This week not much crafting has been 'occurring' (see what I did there?!).
I tackled the job of getting gesso onto some of my bible pages - just on the margins to start with, but I had some very impressive page-curling, so then put gesso onto the rest of the pages and left it closed and weighted down overnight. As you can see, the pages are a bit flatter - but any useful suggestions would be welcome. I have got some very nice blue acrylic paints onto James 1, and now waiting for the time to get some lettering on there. I was hoping to have James 2 and 3 done by now, but oh well it will have to wait until I have completed my Christmas preparations. The bookmark was a digital download from an Etsy shop (Karla Dornacher), which I printed off, mounted onto a scrap of festive card and then coloured in with pencils/glitter pens.
You can also see a prototype book that I made out of the super-smooth card I normally use for cardmaking (as a change from the rougher mixed media/watercolour card), and another little journal that just needs the grey tape applied to the spine to make it stronger.
My pen box is open and waiting. This contains my Micron pens, GellyRolls etc.
I am not crafting this morning due to getting my final Christmas present ordered and then need to finish wrapping/packing up the presents that get posted. No tree or decorations up here yet - hopefully by the weekend.
