Colour Crazy

A  watercolour base for this selection of stamped figures, which were fussy cut to go on the background.
I  added the words and finished the page in the digital program I use.
Colour  crazy is a usual state of mind for me, I love colour and although it has taken me a lot longer to complete this journal page it was good to get a bit inky again.

I will add this to Chris's theme of....
We're all going

Also a reminder for the current  theme over at Try it on Tuesdays......Colours of the Rainbow which ends on Monday evening.

Thank you for calling in today and for all your much appreciated  messages and friendship.

Tuesday musings.

A page for Art Journal Journey and Chris's theme We're all going.....
Two weeks and more into July and I am just sharing my July calender page.
If I were to show you it filled in so far, it would mostly read doctors appointments.
What I thought was  flu bug turned out to be other health issues,  medications etc need to be sorted out. I hope to get reunited with my craft room for a bit longer soon , my energy levels are low and  I can only manage short periods of time.

I am calling in today to  say hello to friends over at Bleubeard and Elizabeths where out lovely hosts have invited us to  their 6th Anniversary gathering. A blog where everyone is always made to feel very welcome.

I created this digital collage for the event.
I hope the cats will enjoy a bowl of creamy milk while we all enjoy out beverage of choice.
Happy T day wishes everyone, I may be late calling to see everyone, but I promise I'll be there as soon as I can

Colours of the Rainbow at TioT's

Colours of the rainbow....
is the new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays

Please pop over for all the details and see how the DT interpreted this theme.

I used distress oxides  for my rainbow coloured
background. Then decided to have fun
 and be colourful with the images I used for the page as well.
The scene was created using  a variety of stamps, some I fussy cut after colouring on a separate piece of light card.

I even took courage and  scribbled my own borders to frame the page.

Thank you for calling in and I hope you will join us over at TioT's and enjoy our colourful theme.

A bit of Fairy dust

A bit of Fairy dust would be welcome in my home just now.....
I am  sharing another page today for
Halle's theme.... words to live by  over at Art Journal Journey
Life caught up with me  big style this past week, and I can honestly say I am not good with being unwell. But rest and snoozes have been the orders of the day and the hope that tomorrow will be a better one.
I had a couple of pages in progress and may be lucky to get the other one completed as well before July dawns.
To the stamped and stencil background, I added some Studio light pop outs. Not what I intended to begin with ,but it got me through the craftroom door for a short while this afternoon.
Now like many of my European friends I will be looking for a cooler place to get my feet up. Who would have thought that after all the rain and wind we would be complaining about the airless heat.

However you spend this Saturday, I hope you have a lovely day.

Hello everyone who calls in today.
I wasn't sure if \\I  would be able to join friends over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's this week for T day as life has been interesting to say the least these past few days . We should h beeen away on a mid weekbreak but a FLU bug had other ideas. coughs  sneezes and shivers  I can cope with, but headaches are another matter. \it felt like an army on the march in myhead  for three days.
my PHoto shows a EEK peek of a tea ATC.,  \not much else has happened in the craftroom otyping on puter has been fun this morning. The poor thing must have come out in sympathy with me, it sure cannot spell or make much sense. Anyway I hope you have a good day and don't catch the 'bug'.
It may taaake me a few days but I will be around and catch up.
Happy T DAY wishes.

These wood carved deer looked
 so real as we walked closer  we were wondering why they hsdn't moved away.

Stay safe and well everyone and have a good week.

Marerial Girl

Another challenge theme begins today over at
Material Girl
The prompt for the theme is..... be feminine and fancy, add lace, fabric, ribbons, materials, real or faux stitching etc .
Please pop over to see how the DT  interpreted this theme, there  a variety of awesome inspiration over there.

This is the tag I wanted to use on my page.
It was stamped with a variety of images  and if I remember correctly it was distress inks used to colout the tag.
Created a while ago  but stored waiting to be used, it would never be seen in a box, but I do look through my journals, so it seemed the right opportunity to use it here.

For the page I simply layered the background with stencils and shaded with distress oxides.

I used a piece of material , some lace and fibers  to give it a feminine look.

I think this girl likes pretty girly trimmings.

Thank you for calling in to see me, you are always very welcome here.

I will also link my page to Halle's theme ,,,,
Words to live by..... over at
Art Journal Journey

Home is where.......

A hybrid page today in my digital journal.
I will be joining the folk at
for  Halle's theme of ... Words to live by

I had made  this stamped   card layer, coloured with oxides and water colours  a while ago and completely changed my mind on using it. The piece is still waiting to be used, but in the meanwhile I decided to give it an outing as the starter for this digital page.
Lots of digital layers [notes in my sidebar] and of course a lot of fun with no inky mess to clear away.

Thank you for stopping by,
 you are always very welcome here,
