Go discover


The folk at Art Journal Journey announced the theme for May this morning......
 ''Journeys''.



I had already started a few  pages  in my journal, to try out some new Tim Holtz stamps, when I read the new theme.
We love the country side as a destination, especially when we go away in the caravan. We are also lucky not to live in a town,.  So . I found a few snippets I'd saved, a piece of an old map and some animals. Stencils to add a bit of interest and extra colour.
I am trying to keep my pages a little less crowded, but don't think this resolution will last very long.


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

  1. I love this. I have been wanting those new stamps. Now that I can see them used it makes me want them even more. I love how you added in the photos of the animals. Yes, we all love a visit to the country. Hugs-Erika

  2. Love your journal page, I think he is reflecting on his past travels. We have sadly had to give up on our caravan holidays, its sitting on the drive waiting for a buyer ! Luckily, like you, we live in the countryside so I still have the fields and animals to view from my windows.

  3. I really like any page that has a map on it. This is simply incredible. I wish I lived in the country, but I live in the largest city in the state (Kansas in the US). Your life much be so much more enriched because of your location, and I really like the look of this layout. Have a fantastic day and week, dear Yvonne.

  11. A wonderful spread, I love how you've use Tim's new stamps. Although I live in a town I'm just a few minutes drive away from the countryside and we have some lovely parks, a couple have been turned into nature reserves - I have some lovely walks with the dogs.

  22. Crowded or uncrowded whatever you design is always perfect and I think you should go with what you feel and not restrict yourself as the end result is always perfect. How lucky not to live in a town, btw love the use of the maps.
