Journal 52

Two  Journal 52  pages to share with you today. 
This is Week 28 and the prompt was Technology.
 The background,  I created  digitally on the computer  using found  free  images, these I  blended together.  My thoughts here was the 'virtual future'. The stamped   images  I added are definitely from a more  visual  past , when  time was  spent  inventing things, with simple pen, ink and paper.. 
The quote I added reads  --One faces the future with ones past.

Week 29 's prompt was 'Fashion'.  
 I can  find things about my craft room much easier for this one.  I went with the 1920's and some Graphics 45 papers. This is quite an  under embellished page  for me. This was the era of classic, straight  lines, 
 where the style was the main feature.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look. I always appreciate the comments you leave.


  1. Two fabulous pages, technology is great when a computer & printer are available! Not the case for me at the moment & fashion ....I'd have coped better with my rubber stamps whereas you've done a brilliant job :-)


  2. Very impressive how you combined the images. I have not tried that at all. Both pages are stunning! Enjoy.

  3. Both pages are fabulous, Yvonne. I specially like the stunning technology page, I love the digital layers, and great to see something so different. The quote is so true.
    Hugs, Mar

  13. Two very different pages, but both great x

  14. Ooh, yum - love those moody steampunk blues, and the words are bang on the nail. Lovely 1920s chic - almost the last time period where I have any time for the fashions (some of the 1940s/50s is okay but otherwise...). Love the beaded chain to finish it off.
