It's been a different day here in my household. Normally Simon (the Man) works on the weekend, but his schedule has changed and he was home today. This has kind of put a kink in my weekend art routine, but it has been nice spending time with him.
He humoured me by accompanying me to the local scrapbook store. I have only been to this particular store twice in the 2 years I've lived in the 'burbs of Toronto. I specifically went for some new Tim Holtz inks, but came away with this:
It was so hard to pick just 6 of the 12 new colours of Distress Inks, but I did it. I was beyond excited to find those new stencils, I absolutely LOVE that line from the Crafter's Workshop. After visiting their site, I want even more of them. ;) I am also super excited about the Grunge Paper. I have used Grungeboard, so the thinner paper was very appealing.
I saw those stamps by Prima and just had to have them. I think they are older, the package says 2008, but they are right up my alley. :) I also bought a bunch of new Basic Grey, loving that "paper ribbon". The rubber stamp looking thing is actually a tool for applying ink called InkEssentials Blending Tool. It comes with the little foam pads to give a softer feel then the direct to paper technique I normally use. I also bought that one reinker to mix with water to create my own spray ink.
After the scrapbook store we went to the mall. I was able to score a few of these wonderful little journals for a very good price, I'm still excited about it!
It's about 4x6 and has handmade paper inside. I have no clue as of yet what I'm going to do with it though!
Just for fun, here is another Baby picture:
Yes, that's my Moleskine and laptop under her. :)
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
