Rhymes

I was undecided whether to post this page as it didn't quite work out as I had hoped and also its the first time I've written on a page and like most people I'm never very happy with my hand writing. However I've told myself that stressing over stuff is not what its all about so just get on with it! for  a change I made my background with acrylic paints and then stamped and stencilled it before stamping the main images. I could not believe that among the hundreds of stamps I have there was not a single one with a bell on so I drew some which looked  nothing like bells , in the middle of the night I remembered I probably had some old peel offs, they were too big but I used the negative bits to give a rough shape which I drew round again. Don't know who made the stamps as they are all unmounted singles.
