Looking Through The Window

I'm behind again with March photo-a-day due to a combination of long working hours and not liking subject matters, but this is Day 8-Window.



This window is at a disused station at Rowfant, just down the road from me. It was closed in the Sixties due to the Beeching cuts. The Parish Council obviously paint the woodwork but otherwise it is very neglected which is a terrible shame because it could be such a pretty little station. The old railway line is now a cycle track which runs several miles between Crawley and East Grinstead through the countryside. I was in my car today but must get the old bike out of the garage and take it for a spin.

And now onto this week's Less Is More challenge - One Layer, Script
After several trial runs on copy paper and a few botched efforts on cardstock, I came up with this.





The script stamp was a freebie with a PaperArtsy order and until today remained unused, the border stamp is by SU. I chose very regal colours Satin Red and Imperial Purple by Versafine. I'm no scholar but I'm guessing the script is meaningless or maybe it's some learned latin? Perhaps someone could tell me?

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.

  11. I have no idea what the script means but it looks great sandwiched between those borders. I'm still screeching with laughter about you wondering whether to sell your uniform! Vicky x
