I chose to create a digital page and   scene,

[ notes in my sidebar of the programs etc I use]

 Two children excited to be going  to school together ,

  maybe a little scared ,

 the clock wasn't helping as it was showing the wrong time,

 but  so sweet that that they are holding hands and  looking   after each other.

Its all gone Green....... at TioT's

 The colour green or recycle .....

 is the new theme for the next two weeks over at
 Try it on

On the left is the original page I used  and altered for this theme.
 You will guess this was  all changed using my computer. The background had been a hands on mop up page.
Changes to  shades of green with no mess involved.

We hope you will join us at TioT's and we look forward to seeing how you interpret the theme.
 You can  get all the information and see what we made  here.
 We also have some  news to share with you

Apologies for being late sharing this page, but my computer had a big update a few days ago and its like learning to use it all over again.

Lets get Messy

 A new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays 

and some exciting news.

We are welcoming Pia and Viv to the team.

 Please pop over to say hello and follow the links to their Blogs.

As always you will be able to see how we interpreted the new  theme and we look forward to seeing your versions of the topic.

Lets get Messy......

In the past a messy page would most likely  have been  binned, whether it was a hands on version with spilt paints and mop ups or a digital page gone wrong.  Now I keep them to use,  some like this one  as a background for my digital   images

On the left is a photo of how my messy background began.

A mop up  page on kraft card, added using computer programs [notes in my sidebar] into a digital journal .

 It looked dull, so I added some digital splodges of white, I thought the colourful bird images , brightened it up. 

I hope this illustrates that you can get messy in many ways when it comes to crafting. 

Its all about how comfortable you feel with what you created,

 its your mess and if others should like what you made that would be a bonus.

Hope you enjoy the theme and I look forward to seeing your messy creations.

Winter Blues .... at TioT's


'  Winter Blues'..... is the new theme over at  

I decided to create a couple of   anytime or occasion digital cards  for this theme. 
A card sent for no particular reason, just to say that  you care about the person 
and hope that in  some way it would  brighten their day and chase the blues away.
I used a variety of blue shades and some  images   from the programs
 I use on my computer [notes in my sidebar] 
 including a background that turned out looking like a dull winter blue grey coloured sky.
We hope you will  have fun interpreting this theme,  we  did ,
 please call over to see what we  made and join us at TioT's.

In with the new..... at TioT's


'In with the new'

is the  first theme for the New Year over at ......

Try it on Tuesdays.

My digital journal page is not created with new images but ,

  I created it with new ideas and  goals in mind.

 These past months my crafting mojo has been well out of action.

My blog neglected as well as  my visits to see what friends have been making.

I cannot promise this will change  quickly

 but I do hope I can keep my

New Year's resolution to visit.  I might  just get to read the posts .

The crafting may be digital, this will depend on how the old hands behave themselves.

I wish you all a very 

Happy and Healthy  New Year

and hope  you will join us over at TioT's.
