Joy is not in Things

Happy Weekend everyone !

I have a quick post today.    I worked in another page of my Gelli Plate Art Journal with a 'self-made' lady stencil.   Again I'm joining in at the Art Journal Journey as October's challenge is "She-Art" or Feminine.




Stamps:   Designs by Ryn - Leafy Branch , the swirl is a 'freebie' from Craft Stamper magazine.   Sentiments are by Chocolate Baroque- Words of Inspiration.   


Coming soon new stamps by Designs by Ryn........ can't wait to play with them :)


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

I know this copy/pasty business is getting boring, but at least that way I can get to my fav blogs for a nose, say hello and have a good weekend.

Oh Shirley, this is so beautiful! I love your selfmade stamp of the silhouette and the background with all its layers is gorgeous. But most of all I love the sentiment!

It's your fascinating use of those leaves & the way you have incorporated the patterns with the image. I could do with a lesson from you in making cohesive backgrounds!!
