Happy Dance!

I grant you ... you guys may not get the whole "Happy Dance" thing ... but ... ya see ... the pictures above are indeed side by side! You know like ... side by side ... side by side ... and it has taken me a millenium trying to work out how to do it ... and yeeeeeeee ha ... I have finally done it! Will I ever be able to do it again ... erm ... I am not entirely sure ... but hey ... I have done it at least once!
So ... what are the pictures??? ... well they are pages from my 7Gypsies A6 journal ... I did n't really plan to share them ... I am not even sure they are finished ... but to be perfectly honest ... I did n't have four pictures of anything else ... and I really really really wanted to post four pictures!
The backgrounds are all Distress Stains ... with some Dylusions Sprays ... and a bit of Distress Ink! To be honest ... I am a bit of a bad journal type person ... because I like to write and doodle so much ... I kinda rushed the backgrounds in this mini book! Note to self ... Must try harder!
I keep getting asked what pens or stamps I use for my lettering ... I use a Black Sharpie Marker and a White Gelly Roll Pen ... no alpha stamps ... all handwritten ... but if you want to know how I do the lettering ... well ... let me know in the comments and if there is enough of you ... I will do a mini tutorial ... might even do the piccies side by side :0)
Well ... that is it from me ... just wanted to share my new technical blogging ability ...
Laters!

You clever girl you! Very nice the pics side-by-side look too! Actually, the pages don't look bad either ...................Ha! Ha! Actually I think the pages are fabulous. Not that I think I'll ever get into this journaling malarky but I would love to know how you do the lettering.
