May's Craft Stamper Project (Judith)

Life has become very busy for us lately, and last month proved to be extremely hectic! Only one of us managed to make the end of the month deadline, and we felt that maybe some of our projects were becoming too complicated.
This month, Lesley has chosen Sharon Neill's Abstract Art project on page 38 of May's Craft Stamper, as our project to tackle. The colours she has used are really zingy and vibrant. We are all digging out our masks and tissue paper for this one, and hopefully we will all make the deadline this month!
We are also busily planning for our mini Retreat at the beginning of June, so we are trying to cram in lots of preperation for several craft filled days together. It is exciting enough that we are meeting up again, but this time we are taking our tools and our stash with us. We have an itinerary of projects that we intend to make together, and some craft shopping planned as well. It just doesn't get much better than that!
One of the projects that we intend to make is a circle journal, now those of you that follow my blog, will have seen these pictures, and I apologise for that. I have made the covers for my journal already, trying to give an indication of colours that I am partial to. We had intended to try and make a couple of inner pages as well, as a kind of mood board, but time is just running away from us. We will all make our basic journals, and all work on a double page in each other's journals while we are together. At the end of our stay, we will have a memento of our time together in the form of  hand crafted pages from each of our friends in our journals. We also plan to put some photos in there too. We have been plotting behind each other's backs, (doesn't that sound terrible?) to work out what to put on these pages, and I think that they will be gorgeous. We will have so much to blog next month, we won't have enough days in the month to blog everything.
Hopefully, we'll be back soon with some sneaky peeks of our canvases for you, Judith x

Oooh, crafty life is getting very busy but even more exciting this month. I'm hoping to make a start on my canvas tomorrow night but if not then I should get a fair bit done over the weekend (famous last words, Lol).

Thanks for taking time out of what I know is a very busy week for you Judith, to do this post.

Your journal covers look gorgeous and I need to start getting actual bits and pieces together for them now instead of keep jotting down ideas. Two weeks today and we'll be there, Yippee!!!!

Judith, I am full of ideas for my canvas - just need to get down to it now!! I can't believe that two weeks today we will all be together for four whole days - how fab is that!!

Your journal cover looks lovely and I am so looking forward to putting my mark on everyone's pages - mind you if we all finish them to take home it will be a miracle, given how much we are bound to be talking too!
