Look and you will see

Sharing another digital page today, made with Art Journal Journey in mind.
April's theme is favourite Poem or Quote.
Lots of the images used came from My Craft Studio programs, which as a beginner to digital I am finding easy to work with.The mice and parrot I found here.
I also have stored many images from various free sources over time, you know the kind I mean, Oh!  I like that, its free, and it might be useful in future, then it never  surfaces for ages.
I spent hours the other day assembling them into one place, I do wish I had noted where I found them so I could give credit, this will be done with all my future saves.
This is the first of a few scheduled posts, so I hope it publishes.
Thank you for stopping by today, hope you have a good weekend.

See beyond the imperfections for AJJ

Three sassy gals out for a stroll, I just wonder what they could be talking about.
The quote I added  is from  a Dylusions  stamp set

"Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect
It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections"

Well don't look to close at the background it has had a bit of everything thrown at it. Brusho's, spray ink, stencils and grunge paste to name a few. The stamps are Stampers Anonymous.
Favourite Poems and Quotes, there are some fantastic inspirational pieces to see over there.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.

New Beginnings at TioT's

'New Beginnings'
 is the new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesdays.
Now that doesn't just mean babies, new homes, weddings, jobs, etc. etc .etc.
and as always what you make is up to yourselves.
I hope you will pop over and see how the team all used this theme, the examples are all fantastic. 
My card was made with Graphics 45 papers and some trimmings from my stash.
The hardest bit was to get the needle threaded for the buttons.

Can you imaging being given a prompt of 'Artistic Restraint', 
well that was what happened in week 9 at Journal 52.  I am so pleased we can go at our own pace at J52  I am on catch up most weeks and blogging my pages  is also very late.
 I decided on one colour but using many shades, the same went for my chosen shape.  I did however add some quotes, this page looked so bare. The kind I would flick past when looking through my journal, but with  words, I would stop to read them.

This is another page that will fit the current months theme at Art Journal Journey
Favourite Poems and Quotes. 

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

Smell the flowers

Sharing a  journal page today which just happened to fit two of my favourite journaling sites
 Journal 52

The theme at AJJ is Favourite Poems and Quotes
J52's prompt  was Aromatherapy
A painted base, then a variety of stencils, Paper Artsy stamps, small fabric butterfly and a couple of quotes. The quote that I like best is about Taking Time. In our busy lives we seem to rush many hours away without stopping and enjoying the moment. 

Thank you for stopping by,  the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.
