Pencil Lines Sketch 208

Been jolly busy this past week.  I've been visiting the gymn 2 or 3 times a week (which is exhausting) but this means catching up on things in the evening.  Excuse #243 for not blogging.

Anyway, here is my take on this week's sketch:

I know it started off with a circle (mine went square), I also changed the orientation of one of the photos too. 

I took these photos of toadstools I found at a local national trust property recently.  It's not often that you see the real thing just growing there.  I was so excited!  I did get a few strange looks from passers-by.

I couldn't come up with a title, so I have used a bunch of 7-Gypsies stickers.

Lots of my favourite leaf stamps have been cut out (took ages), before being inked and sprayed with gold.

Speaking of national trust, we discovered Waddesdon Manor in Alyesbury.  It is the most amazing property we have been to (and we have visited some amazing places).

Unfortunately it was a dull day all day so my photos do not have the same impact.  But if you are ever looking for somewhere to go (especially if you are a visitor to England), be sure to visit.  There is more info on the NT website.  I can't wait to go back.

Now I've done my tourist board bit, I will definately post some projects that are sitting in my in-tray.

Have a fabulous week.  Thanks for popping in.
