Even Silence Speaks

After receiving Jo's card this morning - I gave myself a good talking to and spent the afternoon in my garden craft shed - Mr Lottie insists I call it a studio - but I do feel a bit silly as that conjures up an artist!

I am in a swap and had a large-ish jigsaw piece to alter and a small one - so I had a go with Jasmin in her 'flaky chocolate mood'


It's not very easy doing a jigsaw puzzle piece I found - and the colours on here are much more vibrant by the way.

On Jo's 'Imagine' card - she created a lovely white misty edging.  I have had a go at it, but I wasn't as bold as I was too scared of messing up the puzzle piece!

Jasmin has just finished all her exams and is just laying in a meadow dreaming of what to do during the summer hols. 


She's doesn't like the sun, so is lying in the misty shade.
(Excuse the mark over her eye - it's not a mark but a bit of stray paper!)

All she can hear is the whisper of the long grasses and the only breeze is that from the butterfly wings as they dance around her head.

Hmmm- sounds like heaven!

I am including this is the Lots to Do Challenge this week.

The other little puzzle piece couldn't have been more different if I had tried

Black and white.

Painted  the puzzle white - making  sure that it was textured, then tranferred the image to it, masked it and stamped on the script.


There is a big size difference isn't there!

Stamps used - Jo Capper Sandon's for Stampotique available from Happy Daze - link in side bar.

Jasmin, butterfly, tall grass stem, and 'Even silence speaks' which I have stamped and cut into segments.

I'm there, I'm there Lottie...transported to the idylic field of quietness and breeze.

LOVE this. So much texture and soft effect. An afternoon in the Studio ( ;0) )well spent.

I also love your contrasting piece too of course, but have a bit of a bias towards your Jasmin piece ;0)

I like them both, Lottie but I LOVE the black and white one - sorry!! You really did paint a pretty picture - words as well as images - lovely idea. She's a beautiful stamp, that's for sure!
