Good morning everyone.
The weather is closing in here over the next few days and the heater is on already.
I don’t think it will warm up at all today.
What’s the weather like where you are?

Marie-Christine Denis, from our Design Team,
has some sunny inspiration for you all the way from France.

The first art journal page is full of sunshine.

A burst of colour has been added to the background with
Distress Oxide Sprays before adding some stenciling with stencils from TCW.
The images are from Art By Marlene.
You will see a wonderful step x step tutorial for this scene where
Marie-Christine shares lots of tips with you.

The colours are magnificent.
For this spread she has used Rubber Dance stamps
on a background made with TWC stencils and Distress Oxide Sprays.
