Today I'm sharing a quick post. I had every intention of photographing the steps but before I knew it I was elbow deep in paint and stencils.


The background was made with Golden Open acrylic paint and Giogiocraft stencils using a gel plate. You can just see a hint of the gold paint.

The dancer is from one of the new Giogiocraft sets, again added using the gel plate.

To finish off I added some stamping in black archival ink and some white gel pen. I have no idea where the stamps came from! Probably from magazines over the years.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out for a quick hour of messiness and fun after a long day at work. Sometimes it's best to not over think things and just get on with it.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look. Hope you get to let loose and have a lovely day xxx


  1. I feel the heat of the desert sun... this is the One Thousand and One Nights and Scheherazade is dancing! Love the white gel pen work, it gives the impression of moving sequins on her dress. x

  2. Sometimes just having fun with the technique is more important then photographing everything and the results are worth it. Have a lovely week. Hugs, Angela xXx

  3. Hi Claire I saw your question about the park. The one we go to is on the outskirts of Lincoln and is called Boultham Park. There's a lot of history behind it and though it's not that big we have a nice little cafe where you can sit outside too.
    There are three main parks in Lincoln.
    Boultham Park 55 Hall Dr
    Hartsholme Country Park Skellingthorpe Rd Huge public park dating from the 1860s - By far the biggest with a caravan park too.
    Arboretum 16 Lindum Terrace, Lincoln LN2 5RT
    You can get a map on-line which is probably the best way to find it. Sadly there wont be any Steampunk festival this year as they have cancelled it. It was so good and a real spectacle but there's plenty to see up hill. You must start from the bottom of the city and then walk up hill but you need to be fit to do it Lol! Have a great week. Hugs, Angela xXx
