Journal 52 pages.

I have been catching up with my Journal 52 pages. It is still sunny and very warm  here in Yorkshire, so it was good to sit in the shade and get a bit creative.

Up first is Week 27, our prompt was Nostalgia.

My take on 'nostalgia' with my limited supplies was to think back to my own children, when they were young. Everything seemed magical, each  day was to  discovery  something new, the questions never stopped. How else do they learn. .
The page had already been random stamped, I then added an alphabet stencil.
The children were stencilled onto a book page, then fussy cut. the fairy was also a stencil.
The shadings are distress inks and watercolours.

There are a couple of challenges that I will also be joining--
Thats Crafty Challenges  - Masks stencils and Templates
This is Week 26, the prompt was 'Under the sea'.

I did bring the image of the mermaid and sea horse with me.
 The background was painted, the weedy stuff was stencilled.
It needs a few fish I think, but this will have to wait till I get back home.

I would like to say Hello to my new followers, I will visit you soon.
Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
