The Perfect Moment

Hello! We hope you had a great weekend.. doesn’t Monday come around fast!

Incredibly busy week ahead here at Visible Image HQ.. a huge delivery of gorgeous stamps is arriving today, so we will be busy bees packaging and dispatching them to all the lovely customers who have been waiting patiently for their orders of curious cats, face stamps, unicorns, horses and anything else that had sold out!


We have lots of wonderful inspiration to share with you here on the blog this week, Jane Tyrrell is starting off the week with a beautiful journal page…



Another Monday is here and it’s time for my weekly Visible Image Design Team inspiration post.


For those of you who may be recent readers of my blog I have a real “Jane’s Journal” and a “Daisy’s Diary” (for my granddaughter) where I put all my special art journal mixed media “Moments” that I have made over the years. They preserve in time my precious family occasions. The week before our darling grandson Jack was born on 21 April I went down to stay as my daughter had some hospital appointments. As it was a lovely sunny day I asked Daisy if she would like to go out to nearby Hellier’s Garden for lunch. We went there earlier this year and saw all the snowdrops and daffodils. For this visit it was all about the blossoms… and how pretty they were.






She decided to build a birthday cake using a mole hill, sticks and dandelions ( as you do)





Jack was born 3 days later and I realised that this was our very last Daisy and Nanna outing before his birth. I felt it very important to remember this by making a Moment for her diary. I chose a very apt Visible Image stamp:


This is what I got up to…

First I added some texture through a vine stencil and stamped and embossed the bottom piece of my Visible Image ‘take the moment’ stamp.




I worked with these DecoArt mister inks, inspired by the colours of the blossom Daisy and I saw that day.



I sprayed my background,


and added some flowers through a stencil.


 


Next I added some script into the background using the amazing Scripted Streets set



I also stamped some flowers from the ‘Create it set’ using Distress oxides and fussy cut them out to layer.


I added cracks from the same set to a die cut tree to create bark texture.

 


I then coloured the tree with distress inks.



Once I had all my elements  ready to put together I made my Moment…here it is…..




with some close ups…




Such a perfect sentiment



For a perfect moment I shared with my darling granddaughter.


 


Thanks so much for stopping by today.


Back soon.
Bye for now,
Jane x
