I know... Twice in a week!

Well the other day I just wanted to prove I was keeping up with the 365 journal challenge, but now we are in to March properly I can share a couple of little projects I've been doing for swaps.

The items are now in the hands of the Royal Mail, on their way to their respective recipients so they don't have to be kept under wraps any more.

The first is a textured canvas with inchies mounted on it. I have no idea how it came to be so lilac in colour! It is a favourite of mine but I do try quite hard to try out other schemes. I gave the canvas texture with some Terra paint in a mustardy yellow sort of colour, and put Ranger dabbers in Cranberry and pale pink on top. And then some silver mettalic. Who'd have thought that mixture would turn lilac - it is certainly not the usual recipe but I'm just glad it didn't all go sludgy brown.

The second package to go in the post is a domino book. I made this out of really tiny dominoes coloured with alcohol ink and used lots of little scraps of things to embellish it. I hadn't tried these before but along with match boxes, which I love, they are great for using up snippets and scraps.
