'Anything Goes at FSC'

It is Anything Goes 
this time around at FSC!!!
Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your creation...and then just follow the theme and you are win with a chance of winning!

Is anyone else taking part in Kate Crane's 
Journal Soup 2 online class?
I have always struggled with journaling, but I looove seeing what everyone else makes.
Kate has a way of making it sound so 'do-able'.
So this time I've decided to dive right in and put my own spin on it.
And, Woohoo...this is what I have made.



I must admit that I feel a little clever journal souping and making these owls.
And I will definitely be making more!!!

I made one just for the hell of it...then, after a few hours, I thought that I would make another one a little smaller.
Then the next morning I thought - everything needs it be in threes
so I made another one.

The owls are made the 'Journal Soup' way.

The background has been made with Bister and DI, and there is heaps of stamping and doodling in the background...oh, and a little bleach too.

The thing with doodling is that it is hard to know when to stop!
That is the fun of the whole thing...


The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
