Winter Wonderland....


Winter Wonderland.....

is the theme for the next two weeks over at

We would love to see how you  interpret this topic and hope you will join us there.
Please call over to see what we have been making.

I have created a winter woodland  scene, using  layers  of snowy  digital images.
Maybe  Mr Snowman is asking the robins if they   think the woodland looks magical with all the snow falling around them.

I will also add this page  at  Art Journal Journey.
where the theme this month is All kinds of Weather.

Make it magical at TioT's

 Make it magical.....

at Try it on Tuesdays

All she wanted was to wear a pretty dress 

and have a new hair style.

She  was granted one wish by a little elf sitting among some magic mushrooms

'magic' was in the air and her dream came true.

This is how the pages began...

I had  used a variety of older stamps from my stash  for this spread some time ago,

 it was left on the shelf,. I wasn't sure I liked the colour or it had to much going on

even before I added some digital images..[notes in my sidebar]

WE do hope you will join us at TioT's this time, please call over to see how we 

interpreted this theme.

All kinds of Weather at AJJ

A new topic starts today for November over at
The theme is....
All Kinds of Weather
chosen for us by Chris from Pear shaped Crafting.
Please call over to Art Journal Journey to  see the details and  the page Chris is sharing to inspire us all.
You will also find the small print regarding the rules of our challenge blog.

This is how my page began in my hands on  journal. A painted stormy but messy sky an image of a man struggling with his umbrella in the wind, which even had the tree bending in the gusts of wind.
The next stage was to add another tree and have a digital play around in the  program I use and alter it to fit on my hybrid page, calm down the splodges that were supposed to be rain drops, then  computer generate the words.
We hope you will have fun with this new theme and join us at Art Journal Journey.

Happy Halloween

 Happy Halloween

A last page from me  to join Tracey over at
The theme she chose was 
My Favourite Colour is October.
We have grey skies , dull days and not a lot of sun here in the UK at this time of the year

Edna is out flying on her broomstick enjoying her favourite  scenery  as she flies in the dusky night sky.
This is a digitally altered journal page, this is how the original looks in my journal. I did have a few more photos of the process and how I altered the shading and added the bats, but  I cannot get them ordered on this post, getting these two for you to see was  quite a task. I think the witches have joined the gremlins today.

However you spend your Halloween,
I hope you have a good day.

Its all about Time......at TioT's


Its all about Time....

 and a  new theme for the next two weeks  over at Try it on Tuesdays.

Please call over to see how we  all interpreted  this topic and to see  the journal pages our

 Guest Designer Beubeard and Elizabeth  has created   to inspired us.

A layered digital journal page from me and as many of my friends know I am a tea drinker. The kettle is always ready to be switched on and the tea bags to hand, no matter what time of the day .

 I think I have a guardian tea fairy lurking in my cupboard as she she has been working overtime in the recent months in my home.

We are looking forward to seeing how you all interpret the theme and hope you will have fun and join us at TioT's.

However you spend your day,

I hope it will be a good one for you.

Its Halloween ......... at TioT's


Its getting close to Halloween  and we hope you will join us over at 
 and have fun  with our  new theme for the next two weeks.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have been making.

Once again I have been creating a digital  journal page.
Lots of layers, topped with  a hand painted  mop up page,
more  layered images, can you see the crow looking over the witch's head. 
As for my witch, she looks happy to be out flying  and taking her animal friends out for a trip
on the broom.

I will also be linking this page to Tracey's theme over at 
Art Journal Journey... My favourite colour is October
Dull misty mornings, grey days and long shadows can be typical days here in the UK
and who knows what could be flying in the skies at night.

Thank you for calling in  to see me
 and however you spend your day I hope it will be a good one for you.
