CJ Entry

Yes it's been a while, but life and that event that happens each year in December have taken over rather! I have been crafting away merrily, just not blogging it as I haven't had the time so there will probably be a series of catch up entries now! I am also trying to keep up with doing Journal Your Christmas and not suceeding very well!
Ok so here is the first entry in a new CJ that I am in and started in November. This is Alisons CJ and she had a cobweb stamp. I have to say that I was feeling rather anti-housework when I did this, having just done the Christmas clean-down and waged my own personal war against the mounting tide of cobwebbage in my house!
I started with turquoise core-dinations card that I embossed and then sanded (to get the 50's styley spots) I wanted a bit of gingham about the thing so I painted with gesso and acrylic paint. I then collaged 50's images that I had stamped or printed and/or hand coloured. I ended with the cobweb over all the household appliances and the text from my stash.
Well off it went and I hope she likes it!
Can I just now wish everyone a very Merry Christmas; please all stay safe and warm and have a lovely time!
