Misty for SS and SSS&S

I'm playing along with Hels at the Sunday Stamper again this week 'cos how could I pass on the theme of "Misty"
One of my very, very favourite songs...
...I only have to hear the first three notes and I go all unnecessary!!! HOL

So it put me in a great mood and as I have just received my new Stampotique stamp Heart Throb (be still, be still) courtesy of Art from the Heart I just had to play with him!

So here is the page I made...

...lots of inks, neocolour, sprays (distress and tattered angels) and some of those fabby die letters from T!m ;) which were coloured with distress peeled paint and wild honey then overstamped with a T!m cloth texture stamp in Adirondack pigment snow cap, crown from The Artistic Stamper and words from the song hand written around the heart and down one side.

I've only recently discovered Donna Downey and it is facinating watching her create....this page was looking a bit on the dull side until I watched wednesday's video where she added gesso round the edges of her pages so I thought I'd give it a it!

This really put me in a happy place ;)
So three cheers hip, hip, hooray for Hels and of course Donna ;)
Just realised I can enter  this at Simon Says Stamp and Show as it's anything goes and there is always the chance of winning $50 thanks to Simon Says online shop ;)
Thanks for looking
xoxo Sioux

  8. Do you know something - and this is said from my heart - this is THE best page you have created because I wiped away a tear, had a lump in my throat, was wide-eyed, mouth fell open and then I smiled and felt really happy. All those emotions from a truly wonderful page. You are so clever.
