Miss Freckle Face and a Map for AJJ

Hi everyone
Happy Sunday to you, hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Its been a while since I was able to join in with Kim Dellow's 'Show your face' and although not back to drawing/painting properly yet, I still have some pieces I haven't uploaded yet... so here is one of them using mainly a little spray ink and some Inktense pencils.

Also linking today to AJJ challenge where the theme for June is maps.  I love maps and have a huge collection of old maps I bought to help with family history - I'm tempted to start cutting some of them up and use on projects but for now I've just used rubber stamps.
The rubber stamps are by Viva D├ęcor and I used a TH compass mask with 'tumbled glass' distress stain and also used 'explore' die. Background aquamarker pens (not sure what you call it, but I scribbled on a plastic bag with pens, then a light spritz of water and pressed it down on the paper.)
 Enjoy the rest of the weekend... the sun is shining here and I'm torn between doing some gardening, watching Formula 1 grandprix or crafting..............mmmm or maybe do all!
Thanks for stopping by

  4. Lovely pages! The map page stamps and background colours are gorgeous. I love smooshing diluted aquamarkers onto paper too, it's such fun :-)

  5. Both of these are fantastic. I love the look of Miss Freckle face, and the travel page is a wonderful mix with the old maps and sailing vessels. :) Erika
