.Boots on the roof for AJJ

A journal page using a mop up background  and a few pieces of left over die cuts, 
a variety of stamps and a Clarity stencil.

I remembered to take a photo  at this stage,  by now the song 
''These boots were made for walking'', 
was humming around in my head..
 Most of you know, we spent quite a number of weeks each year in our caravan. So, I can tell you when a large bird lands on the roof , you could often imagine it was jumping up and down wearing large boots like these.

My last version using the same page  had me adding some digital images [Mischief Circus] to the photograph  of the page.
This is Maurice ......
 he does look as if the boots are too big for him, but with feet that size he feels he could conquer the world.

There is still another week for you to join the Create a Scene challenge over at 
Try it on Tuesdays, all the information is here.

Also joining in again  at 
inspired by the Colours of Autumn.

Thank you for stopping buy to see me today, the comments you leave me are always appreciated.


  1. Great song / great page! I can relate to the boots on the roof story from our camping days & indeed even now it sometimes sounds like the birds on the flat roof of my workroom have got hob nailed boots on their feet - mind, the woodmice do too when they get into the attic lol.

  2. Ha Yvonne, what an imagination you have this is just fabulous.xx { aNNie}

  3. Adding that TH bird made this page so much fun. I love the background. That is a cool building/house stencil. Your digital boy on the lat view looks a little bit like Pinocchio and a little bit nostalgic. Great how you showed us different view of the same background.

  4. Love your quirky journal page in all variations. I can imagine how loud the birds sound on the roof. Thanks for joining us again at Art Journal Journey, hugs, Valerie

  14. What a fun collage Yvonne! Great colours! hugs :)

  15. I finally found out from my friend Chris what a caravan is (what we in the US call a motor home if on wheels, or mobile home if stationary on a slab), so I can understand the bird on the roof. That crazy bird in those boots says it all!

    The second image is cute, too. I like both versions, although the bird was probably my favorite. So fun and funny, too. Your background is perfect for autumn, too!

  16. Love your mop up colours and that wonderful village stencil. The boots are a great image, and I loved seeing Maurice arrive in them at the end!
