...and the word is - Japan

Just finished the sample Word book I'm making for Vicky Stampers, our local craft group, and here it is...


Pages inked with Distress inks and letters cut from washi paper.  I have loads of this because Andy's cousin is married a Japanese girl (he teaches over there) and she is very generous with her gifts.  So generous in fact that I got a parcel before Christmas - a Kimono and an Obi (the belt).

Here are the individual pages.


Not too keen on the front one, my favourite is the blue 'P' with the floral masked background and the white cherry blossom stamp (white 'Inksentials pen).  Good job Blogger doesn't have all round vision as the backs of the pages are an inky mess - well it is only a sample.

And if you thought my desk was messy each Wednesday here it is before I tidied up (honest, it's pristine now).


Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  We planned a trip to Bristol to see StepD and family but the forecast snow put paid to that, again, maybe next time we will make it.

You've made a gem there Ann and Boo hoo! I'll be missing it as I'll be in Brighton with the Curly Girlies. So sorry. Let me know if you need to borrow my set of giant letter stencils and I'll post them to you.
Lots of love Jo x

Oh wow.... that is lovely indeed and I don't have a favourite page because put together they all add to each other and the colours are divine!

Hi Ann, your word book is stunning, gorgeous colours. You should enter this in Artful Times challenge, it is so beautiful.

If you want me to cut you a few of those 'Viewmaster' replicas, please let me know, I love the die but did struggle to come up with something, you may have better luck and then I can take inspiration from you! Hugs, Anne x
