Lavinia Fairy

Hi everyone.  Hope you are having a great weekend.

I go back to work tomorrow and Brandon goes back to School.  Speaking of Brandon, for the first time ever he has gone with his friends to the cinema today.  He has to take a 45 minute train journey.  He's only ever done that with me.  So naturally, I'm worrying a little bit but I'm sure he will be sensible.  He's 13 in March and is starting to get quite independent.

I've had some Lavinia stamps, brayer and inks for about 5 years now and have never used them, so I decided to get them out and have a play.....

I watched some Lavinia YouTube vids and had a go myself and this is the result.  I must say I really enjoyed doing this.  I think I've found my favourite type of technique to use more often!!
