Make it an amazing day.

Sharing another yellow page,
but as my gal is wearing her heart pendant
 I wish you a Happy Valentines day if you are celebrating  today.

The base had a yellow water colour wash. I added some random stamping, word stamps  and a hearts stencil, then stopped
 myself from adding more. 
The sweet image is a Carabelle stamp.

I will be joining the folk over at
 Art Journal Journey
and Rike's theme...
The colour Yellow

There is a lot of hearts in the background and  my gal  is  showing her love. I will add a reminder
for the current Try it on Tuesdays  challenge theme....
Romance.,,,,where there are still some days left for you to join this theme.

Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.

Cold sunny days and a cuppa with friends.

I'm still  thinking of ways to use ....
'The Colour Yellow' ... which is Rike's theme for the month over at

It goes without saying that I nearly always have a mug of my favourite brew close by me
 on the table.
I used the remains of a pot of crackle paste  to begin with and gave the page  a wash of yellow water colour.  I am making an effort not to add to much to my journal pages and stopped as you can see after adding, a couple of torn scrap paper, lace , muslin, a couple of photo frames [TH] and a wooden heart. Oh and not forgetting the patch of stamping, words  and the washi tape. Well I did say I was  trying...... to add less.[grin]

I  also created another digital page that my coffee loving friends over at 
Each Tuesday we are always made very welcome  there with s drinks related post
I must thank my friend Valerie for the cup, saucer and coffee pot  digital images  she kindly shared with us a while ago.

A couple of weeks ago when it started snowing I took this garden photo from an upstairs window.
What a difference from the grey to the sunshine of today 

This last set of photos  shows one of  the patches of snowdrops that are   blooming  under the trees in the garden. They are in shade most of the day and seem to thrive.

I added a photo of my small glass of silk snowdrops. I never want to pick them from the garden  where they flower for much longer than they would if brought indoors.

Thank you for calling in to see me and I hope you all have a lovely day.

Painting dreams.....Yellow!

Painting dreams, well in this case exploring the colour yellow.
This is a mixed media page for the current  theme at ....

The page began with torn book papers, washi tape and some Jane Davenport tissue images.
Sprinkles of brusho powders, some splats , there is  even a bit of random stamping , followed by some yellow water colour paint.   The words were computer generated.

Thank you for calling in to see what I have been creating,
 I hope you all have a good day.

It must be love...

The theme for the current  challenge over at 

I used a stencil and stamped background for this first one
 and some Graphics 45 snippets from the paper stash, ribbons and a feather.
 that like my bits box never seems to get  any smaller.

I have also created this tag in the digital program I use..

Both these tags also fit in with the current theme at...

Romance is in the Air .... at TioT's

 is the challenge theme  for the next two weeks at
Try it on Tuesdays.

My card this time is a fun take on the theme.
Please pop over  to  see what we have all been making
and we hope you will join us there.

On the right are a couple of photos
 taken as I was creating  the card.
I did start this card  by first stamping the images I wanted to use.[Katzelkraft]  I watercoloured these two fun animals.
Stencils for the background and distress oxides for colouring. I did add more blue shading as the card progressed as I felt there was to much green.

The sentiment , border additions are all well used  images that I have  for a while.

Thank you for calling in today.
Your visits are always appreciated

Coffee, sunny colours and a cuppa

First of all I will  say hello to friends who stop by to see me to day 
and the folk from 
where our hosts always make us very welcome with a drinks related post.
I hope you like the digital collage I made for all you coffee lovers.

I have also  created another bright page page today using yellow as my main colour choice.

As  you can see I had my cuppa close by as I was creating this page.
I was also watching a Craft Chanel  TV program that was featuring Jane Davenport crafting items and also Jane herself was demonstrating the items and showing  her journals.

The base layers of my page were already in progress and I had found  the silk flower and doily I wanted to use. So I  got out one of her stamps, fussy cut  the image and added it to the center of the flower.
The words were torn from a sheet of washi paper .

I will be linking this page to Art Journal Journey
where Rike's theme for this month is.......The colour yellow.

I hope you all have a good day today.

Sunshine on a Winter day.

On a cold snowy winters day like we are having just now  there is nothing that can cheer me up more,
 than spending some time in my craft room

I had used this page as a mop up a few days ago .
 This morning I called in to see what the theme for the month was over at 
its.... The Colour Yellow
chosen for us by Rike.

Out with more yellow paints, some washi tapes, a scrap of ribbon.  a bit of random stamping as well as the main image[AAll&create stamp] I used on a piece torn paper.

Below on the left is a photo of the page when I was getting into  my add more mode .
You can see above that I only added the bow and a strip more washi tape. I had words with myself to leave it alone.

I was tempted to play a little  with some digital additions
which you can see in the right hand side photo.
I leave it to you as which you prefer.

Thank you for calling in,
if you have the cold, snow and ice, I hope you are safe and warm.
