The girl in the blue dress

I have just managed to finish a digital page that I am reasonably happy with
 for this weeks theme -- Violin,  over at
A few ended up in the computer trash can, one I have added to my play blog,
if you are interested  you can find it here.
The page was layered up using  my own and elements from Mischief Circus kits.
The quote is by Santayana.

I think she may fit Hazel's challenge theme  If music be the food of love-- a
Art Journal  Journey as well.
Thank you for calling to see me today, your comments are always appreciated.

June's Cheeky Challenge theme this week over at Dezinaworld
is  'Candlelight'.
This digital page was made using images from Mischief Circus kits and some  free to use ones.
A quick post tonight as I am finding my way around a new computer,
 the aged old friend has decided it won't play anymore and it was  a bit long in the tooth to repair.

Thank you for stopping by to see what I have made,
 I always appreciate the comments you leave me.

Young Love

''You don't have to promise me the moon and the stars,
Just promise me you will stand under them with me forever.''
I loved this quote when I read it many years ago, wrote it down,
but,  I don't remember the author being noted at the time..

Another page for
where Hazel chose  this months theme of ,
 'If Music be the food of love'.
I used this  base layer photo again, taken  for a previous
 mixed media  journal page here
The stencil of the heart was by Clarity.
Off into my digital program and added  some digital layers,
from Mischief Circus kits and my own stored items.

Time machine

This weeks---Cheeky challenge theme at Dezinaworld  is.... Time Machine.

Harold and Cecil the local radio, reporters   have some breaking news.....................
After months of construction, Mr   I.N. Ventor  has just launched his new sea going  fish capsule.
Early reports say that it is  a  comfortable way to travel 
 and any turbulence  that can cause sea sickness,  is taken care of  by using the gas filled balloon .
However, he has yet to reach the  '' water speed''  that would let him  ride the waves.
Well enough of my silly story, I'll leave you to make you own minds up
 as to how his invention would work.

A digital page, using my Craft Studio  and Mischief Circus  images.

Live, laugh and love for AJ

A journal page for the current challenge over at 
where Hazel chose the theme of.... If music be the food of love.

This is the base layer of the page, a light water colour wash, some torn music scraps, a stencil  heart, which took an age to dry out. More stencils of hearts and words .words. I used distress inks to colour these and added some silver wax to the heart. . The stamps I have had quite a while, sorry no names. 
The butterfly I lost the other day, is now firmly stuck to the page with some other bits and pieces.

Thank you for taking time to call and see me today. I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.
