Winds of change

 I have been trying for days to get a reasonable photo of this Journal page.
 Fate played its hand, so I can now share it in two places.

Its a collage piece using scraps of papers and materials, which always seem to remain on my desk. I may have a lot of imagination here, but I did think the pieces together [photo on left] look a bit like a church.
There is no step by step, or how I made it, the colours and layers were added over days, depending on what was to hand. You can see I used the same stamps that I used here  for my Speed Craft card last week 

I started this page originally for Journal 52 week 47, my prompt was 'wise words'.
Then today the very talented folk over at Art Journal Journey,
announced their  December theme -- Collage. 
AJJ has been inspirational for me, I am trying things I never imagined  I would and learning about so many Artists along the way.

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


  1. Fabulous scenery - and I so love the texture in this page!


  2. Beautiful page Yvonne! It has lots of interest with the textures and all the stamping!

  3. Yes, a very inspiring quote....and a lovely spread. I'm trying to keep up with Journal 52 but have decided that I'm ok with missing weeks so long as I enjoy doing the ones I manage to do! It can't become a chore!
