Our street



The images were from the  weekend papers again,  these are more my kind of girls, fighting over the dolls with big sister about to sort them out.
 Background  made  using a number of stencils including a new one of the houses [Clarity] and distress inks.
I was lucky to visit the Artists Trading Post whilst here in Derbyshire, quite a number of new goodies just happened to fall into my basket.

Have just read that  the theme this month at Art Journal Journey is Houses/homes, so before I change my mind I will be adding this page, I am in awe of the fantastic artwork over there. I hope this will be okay.

Showing  you  this page  as well as it's a girlie type image and not my usual style  of stamp., but I did enjoy colouring it in with pencils  and I have a few birthday cards to make when I get home, so it will be very useful.
.

We have enjoyed some lovely sun today, but its not going to last, back to wet and thunder storms tomorrow.
I will have my journal book nearly full at this rate.
Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate the comments you leave me.

Fabulous again Yvonne, really love how you keep doing these journal pages at the moments. And yes, I do recognize that "things falling into baskets" phenomenon. Really like the way you used the houses with those cut outs in front!!

You are having a lovely creative time in your caravan. I love both these pages, the houses stencil looks great. I rather like the quirky cute stamp you used in the second page too.

Both amazing pages.

No need to worry about joining in at AJJ-I always join in and I haven't even developed a style yet-your houses page is wonderful and very artistic.

Hope the weather is kinder to you than the forecast says.

Love Chrissie x

Fabulous page. Great stencil which works so well with those figures. You have a unique style when it comes to these journal pages. I don't want it to rain, we need some summer, but if you create like this when it rains long may it rain.

I like the way you have included the girls on your houses page, it brings the picture alive. Your little pink girl looks very happy on her page too.

I really like the way you've done the houses in negative space. They make a great contrast for the people in the foreground :)
