AJ3 at the Stamp Attic

Pen and I attended our third class with Sarah Anderson yesterday at the Stamp Attic.  We had huge fun getting covered in ink and dabbers using stencils and masks to make mini books to go in our journals. They are made from a piece of A3 decorated on both sides then cut and folded to shape


The books are nowhere near finished yet but you can see how we've added little notebooks inside as well.

  
This is the reverse side of mine.  That mushroom stamp (by Jo Capper-Sandon) is fab!
 

Finally, Pen gave us the idea of adding lists to our journals so we decided to make a tag with a list on.  The owner of the tag suggested the idea for the list and the rest of us added to it.  My tag was "your favourite word."  I originally wanted to use favourite swear word but it didn't come off  - next time perhaps!  No 4 is the Japanese word for paper (if I remember rightly).

Oh my, such a shame I wasn't sitting next to you this time, I missed all this beautiful art! I love your "trousers" (lol!), and I am now a big fun of the "shroomies" stamps ;). We had a great time yesterday, didn't we? I booked myself for the book covers on the 17th July. Can't remember, I might have asked already, whether you and Pen are coming, too? x

I was so jealous Carol, sitting in the shop just watching you guys have all the fun.........but Sarah made me a little book so I feel better. Your work is amazing and the tags were a great idea, I think we laughed more about what we didn't actually write on them LOL Lovely to see you again and I can confirm you definitely did not leave anything!!
