H is for Hippy

Back from holiday and just scraped in with this fortnight's entry for The Craft Barn dictionary challenge for letter H. Short on inspiration, I flicked through the old dictionary I'm using and came across the definition for hippy which rather amused me. So here goes...

The Inktense blocks were a holiday souvenir from the Derwent shop. I'm looking forward to getting to grips with them properly. Watercolour course starts up again soon so watch this space.

Materials used:
Lavinia stamp: Zen Ella
GiogioCraft stencil: floral circle
XCut embossing folder: floral curls
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint
Derwent Inktense blocks
gel pens, Stabilo All pencils


  1. A wonderful page, the background and colours are gorgeous, I love the leaves - a great choice of word.
