"I eats chain letters..."

I HATE chain letters...can you tell? Even the ones that are passing nice thoughts put people under pressure to do as they are asked, which is why I don't pass on awards. If you want to send me love that's cool, I will send you heaps back, but it shouldn't come with codicils. (oow....just had a lovely idea....more later)

This is a mini journal page I made using a printed image of me, a celtic knotwork 5 pointed star stamp(I think from The Stampman) and "stuff" on my desk.
I like the angle this pic is taken makes me look thinner lol :D...
Scruffed up background with dry brush and "lovebird" acrylic paint from Martha Stewart. The star is stamped with "chocolate" archival ink.
Messed around on face with watercolour and soft graphite pencils, and metallic ink gel pens on star.
Black Eyeball fine liner, blue permanent marker, gold gel pen, white water soluble and indigo inktense pencil.
The journalling is half stamped " i eats chain letters", and hand written with gold gel pen " and poops confetti"

I am entering this in this weeks The Butterfly Effect challenge Stamp it!
Enjoy :D XXX


  1. Did I understand that right...."I eats chain letters...and poops confetti"? Haha!

    What a cool talent!!!
    I really like the idea of using a photo of yourself....I'm not brave enough for a self portrait, but always up for a re-invention of myself....thanks for the inspiration ;)

  2. This is very cool!!! And, I love what you wrote! LOL! I might have to try a photo of myself ;o) Have a great day ;o)

  4. Ah hun - fabulous layout - I too hate chain letters, if the sentiment is a nice one - I remove all the rubbish about having to forward it to anyone and just send it on as it is - a kind thought, but more often than not I simply hit delete!

  5. Hahahaha! ."I eats chain letters...and poops confetti" Lol! You crack me up Gina. Love your page. You look like Gabriel the angel. :) I like getting awards but it's hard sometimes getting all the rules done. :) Don't stress about it. :) Just say thanks and go about your day.:))
