All Aboard for AJJ

A travel hybrid page that began its own journey  from this spread......

A sprinkle of Brusho power  and a good spray of water for the background..
These were  try out pages for  some Tim Holtz stamps.

I had a picture of a rail travel poster  that I wanted to add,  I thought it quite unusual to see a piece of a train carriage used as the shape for the British Isles.
The train I have had stored for ages, so sorry I cannot remember where it came from to give credit.

My journey today would be by train, an old steam engine  chugging along,
a more leisurely way to reach your destination and see the countryside.
I will be joining the folk at
 Art Journal Journey
with this spread
 where the theme hosted by Erika is.... Journeys.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today,
I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.

  11. I'm always so impressed with your work with the Brushos. I have tried several times and always end up with a puddle of mud! Wonderful page Yvonne. Happy Sunday. hugs :)

  12. A steam train sounds good to me! I love how you have used the Brushos for this gorgeous spread! Have you seen Paul Mertons's programmes about request stop stains around the UK? Hugs, Chrisx

  13. I've seen Umbrella Man, but never Balloon Man. This stamp is wonderful.

    Golly, that train image the shape of the British Isles is simply unbelievable. I was over the moon when I saw it, since I have such a love for my ancestral home! Thanks for the ride today.

  14. There is a "stop that train" - reggae song, which is now in my mind! P.
