Messy Mondays: Fun with misting and masking

I mentioned on my blog recently how Wilkinsons had got a very cool new range of stationary and I loved these cute little arrow post-its.  I misted in turquoise and then splattered some purple ink. I was planning to use the negative, but it wasn't crisp enough and so I kept the arrows there and doodled around the edges. I used washi tape and cardstock to create a background of spots and stripes.
The subject of the layout? My dearly beloved at the Southbank food market trying extra hot salsas - the guys on the stall were really funny and when he was gloating about how mild it was they told him to wait and then the spice would really kick in. And it did...

I layered the photo with stamped images and washi tape.

In other news:
  • My little sister has landed in Vancouver and is gloating on facebook every day. Hopefully once the cold front arrives she won't be as smug!
  • We saw Lawless at the weekend for date night and despite critics panning it. I thought it was stylish, with interesting characters and that it captured a gory and fascinating time in American history
  • Review of Cobbles and Clay on my other blog - Yummy in Yorkshire.
  • I am taking part in Shimelle's LSNED for the first time. I joined late and have completed three days already - which I will blog about soon. I am enjoying the chance to think about different prompts and to 'scrap' different topics than I would normally chose. I am also loving all the extra videos and articles linked to each PDF. It's not too late to join in...


  1. Are you joking? you mean when the snow hits and we can go skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling??? I'm gonna be even more smug then! I love the combo of patterns on this page and those little arrows are awesome! also like the hot hot hot title! and still loving your dynamo thing (is that what it's called? or is that the magician!)

  2. Love those arrows on your layout! So fun that you are joining in on the LSNED fun :)

  3. Love the cool arrows. Unfortunately we don't have a Wilko's here. Date night LOL...we did at the weekend too. We saw Hope Springs and really enjoyed that.

  4. Those post-it arrows are very cute. Always slightly satisfying when our nearest and dearest get a teeny bit of comeuppance!

  5. those post it arrows sure look good x
