Silence

Whoa, I just found out that I won a £20 gift voucher from The Craft Barn with my up page. Thx guys.
Here’s my next entry with the word silence.


I found this quote 
Silence is the way to avoid many problems,
smile is the way to solve many problems.
I liked the fact that is does not only have silence in it but also smile, I found that just perfect as it forms a bridge with the previous page.
The background is stamped with music notes and colored with distress stain broken china over which I glued some gelli printed tissue paper. There was an oops during the gluing, I was a bit  overzealous and the tissue paper got thorn, but I left it that way and now it’s part of the design.
Now I’m going to start on a dazzle page in my dictionary.

  9. I am inspired to start using my Gelli that I got for Christmas and still haven't taken from its original box. It makes the background even better and I love that you used tissue paper. And I really like the quote that has so much meaning.

    1. Can't believe you let it in the box this long, when mine arrived I immediately got stuck into it and that hasn't changed since then, I love the gelli plate, I really think this is one of my best craft buys.
