#365Challenge.... April !!

Oh my word! ... this was five months ago!  ... and I left you at 7th April!

I should probably remind you what the #365Challenge is:  I'm answering all the questions asked on the Flow Magazine question-a-day calendar. If I like the question (am able to answer the question) I create a page with the answer.. and if I don't like the question I simply make a nice page instead. lol  Sounds simple, yes?  Well sometimes yes and sometimes no!

my project = my rules!

Here are the completed pages for April... using the big number stamps was a challenge - but that's what this project was partly about - to challenge myself and {hopefully} learn something along the way....  

Used a gelli print as the coloured panel on this page, over-stamped with a mini stamp - JM49, the sentiment is from the PaperArtsy ZinskiArt stamp set ZA08 (great little sentiments!)

I like how the numbers on this page seems to be in the grasses.

I wanted to look through the numbers on this page so created an acetate overlay - stamping the numbers onto the overlay with Snowflake Fresco Finish paint and filling in the numbers with Pearl Glaze.
 I really like the Chalkboard look of this page - the Fresco Finish paints are great for achieving this effect (flowers are stencil PS055)

oooh Distress Oxide ink background!! what's not to love!?!

I ended April here... maybe I'll go back and finish it later in the year but for now its 'finished' ... on to the next month..



  1. Love the big numbers theme throughout, intrigued which numbers you are using for April and the cover of May...I'm tracking back in case you've already mentioned! :)) x

    1. Oh, I forgot to mention what stamps company the numbers were! sorry! They are Papermania (docrafts) stamps - I bought them a few years back thinking 'ooh they'll come in useful one day'! I've used them quite a lot - great for numbers on cards etc. They might still be available, but probably not - I might have a dig around and see if any other companies make anything similar.

      The numbers on the covers are all the same - 'Fortress' by a company called Ma Vinci's Reliquary - sadly no longer. :o(( they made really interesting alphabet stamps.
