Journaling with Stampotique

It's Val's turn to host the challenge over at Stampotique this time, and she has set us a real goodie of a challenge. Val has challenged us to use 3 squares in our creations. Simples! But it's amazing how many different interpretations of this there are, just check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with for starters!

Don't forget that to join in with this challenge, you may now use any stamps at all, and to be in with a chance of winning a $30 gift certificate don't forget to link up your challenge entry at the Stampotique Designers challenge blog here.


I chose to use Minky Girl on my journal page, because I just love her slightly cross expression (it's how I feel sometimes), and then I chopped her into three squares. First of all I created a tag but then I decided to add it to a journal page. This background is a mop-up page in my journal where I literally mop up any ink left over on stencils. It's a great way to prevent wasting ink, and makes a quick and easy ready-made journal background.
I used one of my favourite words on this journal page : -discombobulated- 

Many years ago this word was brought to my attention by the infamous Blackadder in a wonderful and very funny sketch on the TV which still makes me LOL.

(If you have never heard of Blackadder, and haven't got a clue what I am talking about, then have a look at this clip here:

For my USA friends, this is Dr House as you may not have seen him before!!)

Byee for now ...

  12. Discombobulated has been one of the favourite words in our office for years. It seems to describe our continual state very well ;-). Love the colours on the tag, they look so vibrant.
