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


'In with the New'

is the first theme for 2022  over at

 Try it on Tuesdays

where you will find all the details  and can see  what we have been sharing with you there.

I have made this layered  card using one of my new stamps from All&Create.

The image was water coloured, and I used a puddle of green paint on another  stamp

to create  the leafy surround instead of ink.  I think I need more practise with this technique.

The butterflies and sentiment were digital additions.

So I am sharing a new stamp and a new  way of stamping an image with you today.

Thank you for calling  here and I hope you will join us at TioT's.

I am Me for..... AJJ

' Lets Face it.'
A digital journal page for the theme Erika has chosen for us this month
The background of the page was paint, stencils and mop ups 
with the images added in the computer program I use[notes in the sidebar].

I am  Me........well I don't look like this,
 but we are all different and by looking at our faces and the faces of others.
 we immediately see how different we are.
Our facial expressions, a look, a glance, a grimace, a hard stare, a smile.
we show happiness and pain, anxiousness. fear joy, sadness.
 I think you can imagine how long this list could get.
So when you next look at someone , 
give a thought to what may be going on in this persons life that could be hidden 
 by the facial expression they show the world.
Thank you for calling in today you are always welcome here
 and I hope you are safe and keeping well.

Lets Face it....... at Art Journal Journey


'Lets face it'

is our first theme of the year over at Art Journal Journey,

Erika is hosting this month and I hope you will pop over to see  her inspiration, read the 

information and background for the theme,

 that  she has shared with  us all.

I used a few digital face images for this page,  creating imaginary friends for Elsie  who  is

missing her school friends. Seeing the expressions on their faces

 I think they would  all be  happy in each others company.  

It is said that  every face has a story to tell and I'm sure these girls will have many as the  years go by.

We are looking forward to seeing your take on this new theme.

Happy New Year to you all.

Knock on our door


I am sharing this digital journal page with Valerie's theme..... 

When one door opens another one closes. over at Art Journal Journey

I am sure every living creature will have a entrance or doorway as we do  

to their place of comfort and safety.

 The birds are waiting   and I'm sure 

 the folk inside the tree house are all prepared for  the family to get home.

Stay safe everyone .

When one door opens another closes....... at Art Journal Journey

Opening a new door can be quite challenging,
 wondering where and how  people live and  what it is like behind the closed  door.
 The doors to our homes can be similar to our neighbours or completely different
in style and the way they looks to others,
 but inside will be unique to themselves,
 their home, their place to feel safe.

This page is for the new theme that Valerie has chosen for us over at ...
'When one door opens another closes'.

A mop up background for the page with  some fussy cut stamped images and the two TH found relatives were the starting place for this page, which was altered and manipulated in the digital computer program that I use [notes in my sidebar]
Maisie and Alice have met two new friends while they were playing outside in the garden.
 Alice  wondered where they lived. It came  as quite a surprise when Maisie showed her the small door beside their own that  took the little people into their own home.

I hope you will call over to the Art Journal Journey blog to see the inspiration and explanation of this new theme that Valerie has posted for us there and we look forward to seeing how you interpret this new topic.
 Please read the rules while you are there as a few have been changed slightly
 and we now accept smaller pages.
