I am starting off with a journal page .
Yesterday on my digital blog I shared a page about Solitude. Relating to the fact that I enjoyed being alone in the quiet of my home and doing some crafting.
The page is here if you would like to see it.
I was also working on this mixed media hybrid page .
I used another piece of pre- inked and stenciled card as a starting point with a couple of the Affirmations stamps I couldn't resist a short while ago. I made a mess of trying to stamp a hair style, so I covered most of it up with gilding wax..
The base in my journal was book print scraps, random stamping and white gesso and watercolours.
I gave her hair a new style, using autumn leaves and berries in the digital program I use.
I will be adding this page to Art Journal Journey
and Elke's theme of Landscapes of the Soul.
Now its a hello to friends over at
We are always made to feel very welcome with a drinks related post.
Autumn has really arrived in the North Eastern part of the U.K. now.
Here are a few photos in my back garden, we often wonder when is a good time to gather the leaves in no time, it looks just the same as if we hadn't brushed them up. .
As you can see it is a dull day, like most days here now.
However the sun did decide it would like to show its bright side earlier last week, so we went to visit Rothbury a small market town in Northumberland.
What a difference some sunshine makes. It is a quiet town, it also has some interesting shops .
Our destination was a small cafe, popular with the locals, you can see my hubby looking through the window to see if there was a free table.
In summer the seats outside are popular, it also sells yummy ice creams,
the sun may have been shining but it was very cold.
I would describe it as a no frills cafe, but have to say the food is home made and delicious.
The aroma of cooking from outside draws you in.
The staff treat their customers well and are very friendly.
We both had the steak and ale pie and chips.
Tea for me and Coffee for Dave.
Thank you for calling in to see me
Happy T day wishes to you all.
