Sharing more journal pages today.  This first one already had the background coloured and random stamped, I have many pages in my journal like this just waiting to find interesting things to add to them.
The flowers were fussy cut and I added the image  among them, its a Dina Wakley  stamp, which I water coloured.  I used an alphabet stencil for the name.
Fleur  will be joining the theme's at--
 Art-Journal Journey the theme for July is Flower Power, I recently found this Blog and the inspiration there is fantastic.
Simon Says Stamp -Monday Challenge   -About a Face

This next page was just for fun, to try out a new mouse stamp.
I couldn't wait till we got back home.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, the comments you leave are always appreciated.


  1. Beautiful work, the flowery face is just gorgeous. It's always good to have some backgrounds ready to play with! So, time for me and my grungy cast to go to bed! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Fabulous pages Yvonne, both of them! So different in style but they both look fantastic! Just love the way the face peeps out from in between those flowers! The other more fantasy like flowers look brilliant too and great backgrounds! Always good to have some ready when inspiration strikes...

  3. What brilliant pages

    Yes this is the best with just making many backgrounds..and by the time Madame Muse brings us the best ideas what to put on and add to them...
