Creative Dyary Update for August

I have updated my running record of my weekly Dyary on its dedicated page here however this is a brief summary of August! 
Week Commencing 28 August
The Bank Holiday weekend always makes me think of the seaside and so this page was born using some appropriate Dylusions stamps!
Week Commencing 21 August
This week I wanted to celebrate all things summer and these JoFy stamps for PaperArtsy fit the bill perfectly! It is so bright and cheery and I really enjoyed opening the Dyary each day to see it.
Week Commencing 14 August
The previous week I went bonkers with spray inks and this week was no exception! So many inks in the background! The pink really pops out doesn't it? A great contrast to the bluey/green.
Week Commencing 7 August
I went a little crazy with my spray inks this week - it has more layers than the photograph shows. The last layer was a Vintage Photo Distress Spray - it seemed to lend itself to a vintage image.

Earlier this week I went to another University Open Day (Sunderland this time). We found ourselves passing Harrogate and it seemed a shame not to detour and visit Art From the Heart! I *might* have bought a few new goodies and so this page in my small Creative Flip Journal is a first play with these new delights!
I bought some leaf stamps as I'm certain I can't have enough of those! The spiders were from last year's Halloween set that "fell" into my hand! The quote is one I found a while ago. I've agreed with it and disagreed with it in turn but it's certainly made me think!
These two Stampotique stamps were desperate to come home with me. I *might* have bought a couple of others too that will debut soon! This is one of those layouts that I'll come back to in a couple of months (probably the next time I have new things!) and will add a little more to it - but for now it's finished!

We are a normal family

I have more experiments in my Creative Dyary and my latest is featured on the Country View Crafts Project Blog. I'd be thrilled if you popped over to see how I made it.

Never too proud

For my first project at Country View Crafts Challenges for the new month's theme of Blue and Green I made a page in my Dylusions Creative Dyary.
I covered the page in white paint and added a large numbers stencil and Dylusions Ink. The tag is also coloured with Dylusions Ink and the stamps follow through to the background page. 
Thank you, as always, for popping by. I hope you'll join in with us this month.
