They who have wings for TioT's

'They who have wings',
 is the new challenge theme that starts today over at Try it on Tuesdays.
The background for this layered card was made using a Sheena Douglass stencil 
 and shaded with distress inks. The birds  from Tim Holtz Quirky birds set, were water coloured.
The die cut is also one of Tim's.
Please pop over to Tiot's and see the fantastic inspiration from our Guest  and the Team.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at what I made,

Mary the Baby Sitter.

Had fun playing with my Quirky Birds stamps set  [Tim Holtz] yesterday, 
while waiting for paint to dry  for  future  DT  projects.
Journaling is becoming my favourite way to unwind.
That and visiting  the
blog, where you can always find amazing inspiration.
This page started  a while ago when I was trying out new stencils,  and various shades of green distress ink.
The birds were water coloured . The bird box is a Joffy stamp.
Poor Mary, looks  a bit harassed. 
 Her charges will be increasing when those eggs hatch .
Mary is  also off to visit at
Moo Mania and More  where the theme is Eggs.

Henry and Henrietta

This is another page for Art Journal Journey.
March theme --Things with wings.

Henry asked  Henrietta where she would like to go on holiday.
As usual he wan't listening and thought she wanted to go some where hot,
 so he took her to France.
 A fun page for me to make, using warm colours, mainly Spiced marmalade distress ink, stencils and a couple of free  images that I have had  on the computer for a while.

I am just in time to join the current theme  at
Moo Mania and More
which is Poultry.
 Thank you for taking time to stop by, the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.

Jump and don't forget to fly

A just for fun page in my journal today, 
lots of Spiced Marmalade and Mustard seed distress ink for the background.
The stencils are Sheena Douglass using Black Soot DI
The image  is a Dina Wakley stamp. 
Its 'Things with wings',  over at
where they are celebrating their 4th Birthday  this month.  
This  image  was just asking for the addition of some wings. I just wonder how high the jump needed to be and how much arm flapping it would have taken  to fly away.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.

This card was made up mainly using Graphics 45 papers and elements,

Tweets and Meow

Another page for Art Journal Journey
 and the theme this month is Things with Wings.
I hope these small birds will be okay, but I do think it was rather brave of that little one talking to a cat.
As you can see, its another messy background, mainly brusho and mop ups.
I  added  the stencil of the tree and the images [Brett Weldele stamp set] .
The wall is another left over scrap of an embossed wall. Plenty Vintage Photo distress ink and some Empire gold gilding wax soon got my hands back to looking their normal state, when I am crafting just for fun.

I will also be  linking  to the new challenge blog Mixed Media World
the first theme is Anything Goes.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look,
