Today the autumn issue of Marie Claire Idees arrived in my letterbox, and in it was a wonderful journal project – similar to the Word Art Journal. Instead of cutting out words from junk mail, they had used a variety of packaging labels – I will be giving this a try soon!
They also had some other great recycling decoupage ideas – using stamps, postcards, and envelopes.
I love the use of coloured pencils in this project! Note the stars on the wall.
Remember the lemon butter I made last week? I had some egg whites left over so have been working on my piping skills – meringues always remind me of children’s birthday parties, but my family were happy to eat them even without a reason to celebrate.
Following on from my recent lemon butter making, a friend gave me a pile of fresh limes from her tree! I made up a batch of lime curd which is equally delicious. I found the recipe here.
