This one was of those journal spreads that just evolved, 

This was how it all began.
Two blank pages and a few stamped images.

Some raised stencils- highlighted with gilding wax when they had dried out and a few layers of spray paint

Again, after the photo was taken I added a digital element, just the one
as it realy fitted into my thinking for the spread.

I am linking to this weeks  
Cheeky Challenge theme  over at
which is Masculine.

Apologies if I don't get to call and see you  as often as I would like to over the next couple of weeks.
I have a few posts scheduled, but internet connections can be  hard in some  areas,
  it will be an adventure, as we have never been to this part of the UK before.

We are off in the caravan to the National Land Rover Rally,  to meet with family and friends , while the menfolk and some of the women enjoy the off road competitions. Many of you will have read of these events  in my posts over the past few years.
The wellies are packed,  as there is always an amount of wet and mud involved.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today. 
Your comments are always appreciated.

  4. I thought I already left a comment, but it looks like I didn't. First, I want to say how much I like this latest entry. I'm still not sure how you did it, but it looks wonderful.

    I have an internet friend who always goes with her husband to the Land Rover Rallies every year. I hope you have fun and take lots of photos of the various Land Rovers. On the off chance you have no internet, I'll see you when you get home! Have a fantastic holiday.
