New Lynne Moncrieff stamps and stencils

I was fortunate enough last week to buy some wonderful new stamps and stencils from Lynne Moncrieff''s" Thats crafty" range.
I have a small handmade book which is just perfect for playing with this gorgeous array of images and affirmations.

Lots of Distress inks, Infusions, crackle, Grungepaste, vintage lace, teabags, calico, embossing and drippage. Had a ball and can carry on playing forever.

Vintage Neutrals.

I have been sidelined recently by an amazing free online course called Sketchbook Revival.  There have been some amazing lessons on there from about 20 different artists.
I try to do something in my sketchbook everyday and yesterday I did a double page spread of my Prima watercolour paint tins.

The one on this page is a little set that I bought from PaperArtsy on their final trip to Ally Pally....sob!

Because they are largely neutrals, I thought that I could enter it into the Vintage Neutrals PaperArtsy challenge.
At the bottom of the page, I created a very quick watercolour of one of the flower borders in my garden. It was a blissfully peaceful exercise.
