A Spot of Sunday Journaling!

Oh My Goodness... it is like a Summers Day here in Cambridge! Absolutely bloomin' gorgeous!
I spent last night wrapped up in the warm coz it was so chilly and treated myself to a spot more scraps journaling! I LOVE this Dylusions spider ... so cute ... LOVE the bats too actually ... and the cat ... oh and the hats ... and the tree ... but my favourite is definitely the text! LOVE that text! It really resonates with me ... I have to tie a hand behind my back most days to stop myself using it on everything!

I have been doing a bit of White pen shopping today too ... bought a new Ranger Inkssentials white pen ... and several others to try ... you know like for research! In fact I spent approximately £15 on white pens! I am loving the Sakura White Gelly Roll ... but their Souffle pen ... does nothing for me whatsoever! What white pen do you use ? I usually prefer the Ranger one ... but the Gelly Roll may ... indeed ... be my new favourite!
Okay ... back to my pages ... made in the normal fashion ... I have covered the background with Tumbles Glass Distress Stain ... then swiped the Broken China ink pad across the page ... before spraying Dylusions Sky Blue through the Tando Circles stencil. All the other colour is indeed my ProMarkers! You will all be pleased to note that I am getting my monies worth out of those babies :0)
Please don't ask me how to spell 'prescious' or is it 'precious' ... I know ... I know ... I have spelled it wrong ... but in true journaling fashion ... I ain't gonna worry about it! I say that ... I clearly am ... coz I have mentioned it ... but what I mean is ... I aint gonna worry about it so much that I feel the need to go back and change it ... or indeed scrap the page altogether!
So ... people ... what you got planned for the week ahead? I have a lot of really dull stuff to do ... you know like invoices and bills and stuff ... so I am going to make a load of backgrounds tonight me thinks ... so I can doodle away to my hearts content in between the dull stuff!

Your comments on my Pro Marker Gate post really made me laugh by the way ... it is so good to know that I am not the only one who wins oh so many competitions ... the best one for me is that well known online auction site ... you know like ... Where did you get that??? ... What this???? ... I won it!!! :0)
Have a wonderful week people whatever you are doing!
I must away ... There is a  yummy Sunday Roast waiting ... with me name on it ....
Laters!

Gorgeous page, even with the spelling mistake... love the blue colour. I like the gelly roll white too..

Carol Q said...

what a sad bit of text Linda!. love your multicoloured stars. I've been looking for that eternal white pen and come to the same conclusion as you - that Sakura white gelly roll one works best

Ginger said...

Yep, white gelly roll all the way. I have hopes for the new ranger, but I shall wait and see. But the soufflé is so naff, it cringes in the corner everytime I reach for a pen, as it fears the bad language it gets thrown at it, if I pick it up by mistake.
Love the colours on your page, and that is a cute spider....for a spider. x

Sid said...

Fab colours and stamps.....I like the Posca white pen !

Bernice said...

I watched Hels demonstrate the Picket Fence Distress Marker and that was really good as a white journaling pen. Definitely going to get one (make that 2)!

Kirsten Alicia said...

Another fab page, love the colours.

Dallying Debz said...

Love your colours and that lettering (spelt right or wrong) is great! I promised I wasn't going to get any stamps at Make it this weekend but I managed to pick up 3 sets of alphabets - oops!

Glad to see that you are enjoying your journaling so much now. What happened to your Sharpies that we got in LA....you no likey????? They are my favourite.

See you soon. x

Sue said...

OMG FLIPPING best one so far. I brought a pack of Ranger white pends so don't likey.

What alpha's are you using Linda?

Linda Elbourne said...

All handwritten Sue ... Apart from Dy's text stamp of course!

Linda said...

Sad story but cool pages :)

Sue said...

Hi de hi - oh yes - he's 4 in May and Charlotte is coming up two. Have put up a couple of piccies of both of them. I feel older by the minute - lol. Let me know what you think of the Uni Posca pen if you get one. I've also ordered a Marabou one. It's a really bright white that I'm looking for. Must go and dig out a white gelly pen. Dead jealous that you can do the spray ink thing through the stencil - can't quite get the hang of that - yet - lol

Ali said...

Gorgeous page - I love the bright, vibrant colours. I bought a few white pens myself a while back and have to say the one I've found best so far is the Uniball Signo one.

Love your pages, spelling glitch and all really doesn't matter.
I've tried all the white pens I can get my little mitts on but the bestest ever has to be Sharpies Poster paint ones. Can't get them here and they are even hard to get in USA but my friend ordered them for me whilst I was over there and so they are on the net. Someone else may find them!!??!!

Gelly roll has to be my favs too. tried using the sharpies paint one but didn't really get on so well with it. I think your page looks amazeballs!!

Craftychris said...

Fab vibrant page. Your lettering is always so cool and I love the spider! xx

Gorgeous page. Sakura gelly roll for me. Rangers pens were rubbish (surprisingly), uni poster pens don't write easily and various other options ran out quickly. Posca pens pretty good but think its down to individual preference.
