A happy process to share with you today (as you might be able to tell from Barbie’s posture!)
A lot of my Barbie photos are carefully posed, but this one wasn’t – I spotted her in this joyful pose after one of Kitty’s play sessions.
I thought she looked especially fab in her silver dungaree dress, sitting in her minimalist craft room.
I wonder if she’s just heard she’s made the Felicity Jane team? Or perhaps she’s finally finished last year’s December Daily?
My page is a double-page spread this time, as I fancied doing some painting in the background.
Another of my favourite scraptherapy tricks is to stitch together a few pockets in pretty papers. I stitch by hand as sewing machines drive me bonkers and completely kill the chilled, therapeutic vibe I’m trying to create!
I had done more painting on the left hand side of the page, but it was a hot mess, so I covered it with that big envelope.
This page was a simple ‘hooray!’ page after Rev. Fish came back from a week away. I do enjoy my girls’ times with Kitts, but it’s always better when the three of us are back together again.
I’ve layered up all my favourite papers, including this scalloped blue one which I adore.
I’ve tucked his plane ticket into one of the pockets and a bag of tissue paper discs into another, to make things feel a little bit celebratory.
My painting is deliberately loose and blobby.
And I must say that I’m loving using my Happy Day alphas! There’s something quite thrilling about using product that you’ve designed yourself.
Hope you’re having some lovely scraptherapy sessions yourselves, dear friends!
