A crafty day and a tea bag.

Its the second week of the Vintage Photo challenge at Try it on Tuesdays
I have two journal pieces to share with you,

The first spread is mixed media, lots of paint, random stamping , texture,  spread on with a bit of plastic and some scraps and bits and pieces from my saved box.
A lovely messy play.

Next a layered  digital collage page.
A much cleaner way to be creative. 

The main images were all found from Google searches.
other additions were from Mischief Circus and my own stored ones.

Now playing and getting messy in the craftroom is a great way to pass  the day,
but we all need to take time out for a cuppa..... my choice....
You guessed it,   '' Tea''

As its Tuesday, I will stop by and say hello to the folk
at Bleubeard and Elizabeth
and share my  cuppa with them.

Isn't she a gem.

Thank you for calling to see me today, I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.

  11. I'm a BIG fan of your digital art, Yvonne, and always enjoy seeing it. This vintage inspired piece is wonderful and the font is one of my favorites. Having said that, there is nothing better than layer after layer of vintage gorgeousness. This photo booth inspired piece is simply STUNNING.

  17. Both of these are lovely. I especially like the right-hand page on the first and the way you have used layers to put over the message in the second.
    That's a great mug, love the tea bag!

  18. I love your mixed media page, the pretty blues give it a nice romantic look. I amazed at the effect you can achieve with your digital pages, I love the vintage photos and great sentiment.
    Your tea bag cup is fun, but I would probably prefer it with coffee in it.
