Hi all, well I tried to get this post done a bit earlier, I did honestly! but life as they say just keeps getting in the way.

I had a little bit of fun this week making my project for the Polka Doodles Studio 12 Blog.  I didn't use any printed papers or greetings etc from the CD.  All I used was two flower images from the Heavenly Garden section printed three times on acetate.  This I made this into a stencil by cutting out different sections of the flower so I could decorate the front cover of a homemade book/journal/album (not sure which yet) upcyled from an empty paper pad.  It is still a work in progress and I need to add a title, embellish it and add the pages.  Details of how I did this are on the Studio 12 blog if you want them.
Clarity Stamp samples from the last show.  The first is a wall hanging which I rather like, I could have kept that one.
The one below was just me playing around with the stamp set before I actually made anything.
and the cards -
Th N on this one is upside down, but with the letters space out it really didn't look right the right way up.
The one below has to be my fave, lots of masking but I really like the end result.
More playing here with just one tiny stamp and two different inkpads.  It interesting just how many patterns you can make.
