Gadzooks and Hey Nonny! Tis Wednesday and I must haste away to yonder Stamping Ground for to alight my peepers 'pon the veritable feast of crafty goodness laid out across Ye Olde Blog Lande. What say you to accompanying me?
Sorry. Appeared to have fallen into one of those parallel universe thingies then. Either that or lack of carbs is causing me to become hysterical.
Now then. Enough of this nonsense. 'Ere do be my workdesk this very Wednesday.
Cheeky hooligan dog decided to get in on the act too!.
Stop pretending to look interested Harvey!
I didn't know what I was going to do with them really but was sure that I could fit something crafty in, on or around them.
Now these photos are rubbish really so I do apologise if you're not getting much inspiration from them! I stamped some distress ink pads randomly over both mats. If you enlarge the photos by clicking on them, you'll see that the ink began to 'bead' on the plastic.
I sandwiched a tag between the two and squooshed them together so inking up the tag in a rather pleasing speckly manner!
There was loads of ink left, so I also pressed a couple of my journal pages onto the mats and so achieved a similar pattern. I added a bit of chalk over the ink once it was dry and I now have a couple of background pages ready to go whenever I decide what I'm going to put on them!
As experiments go, it wasn't ground breaking really was it? But I'm still learning about these things so that's ok.
Fare thee well fair maidens (and, erm. non-maidens!)
See you soon
