Perefectly Sensible Nonsense

Bonjour,
Creeping over the threshold in the wee hours of Sunday morn, just in time for Linda's Grungy Monday and a touch of the sparklies. This week you can wow us with your best Distress Stickles moves. I'm feeling quite bedazzled this week as I also had to do a Bling themed DT piece...so much glittery stuff and not even a whiff of Christmas in the air. Anyway, after an intense session working on other projects, I just wanted to just grab a tag and dabble.

 I was surrounded by a chaotic inky aftermath and just took whatever came to hand. Maybe the late hour inspired the sunset mood... Distress Stained background, embossed rays and lots of ink. No real plan which is sometimes the best way to play.

Which leads me nicely to this bit. I like the word stuff. It covers a multitude of things and can be anything you want it to be...
I stamped the words in a mix of colours onto a painted book page and the added a good dose of Distress Stickles...it is there twinkling as best it can as such an obscure hour. The only place to get a good piccy at this ungodly hour is on a small ledge outside the loft bedroom. This requires hanging off the stairs and poking the camera through the bannister.
Also a quick reminder that the My Mojo Monthly August Challenge is up and running. It's a Muse it & Use it theme this month....which means your ideas and thoughts on usable art! Do join in!
So that's me all done. Off for a little shut-eye before the dawn breaks... Thanks again for dropping in. Do share a little blog love or gossip... I'm all ears.
