Oh the windy city is mighty pretty . . .

 Hi everyone, Tracy here today and I`m sooo excited to be sharing a journal page with you all using the
 from the
that Susan designed for Studio 12 which is available in the UK from Polkadoodles, woohoo!

So I was sitting in my shed thinking about my youngest, who has just moved to the big City to live, to attend University when I SPIED this stamp and my brain started to tick, tick, tick . . . .
 . . . it`s as if it was just sitting waiting on this day to arrive!

Out came my old second hand book, a few paints and Distress Stains and I was off . . .

. . . okay I admit I got carried away so no step by steps, but it is soooo easy to re create!

Just ink up the stamp with an Archival ink pad, stamp straight onto your chosen journal and again on a loose sheet of paper.
 I used a mixture of watercolors and Distress Stains to color the background and images before splattering with a little water and Distress Stains.
 To add a little dimension I snipped out a few buildings from the extra sheet, before fixing in place with foam pads.

Now if you know me, you will know by now I looove to scribble and doodle doodle dooo
 . . .soooo . . .
 . . . out with a fine black liner pen and away I went adding a little along the way.
Here`s a look at the opposite page which I looove to use to keep a record of all the products.
 Well that`s all from me today.
Thank you for looking.
Till next time
Happy crafting friends!!
