The dawn Chorus for AJJ

An inky and messy journal page today for this months theme over at

In my garden there is......... a Dawn Chorus

I am really enjoying being Valerie and Susi's Guest Hostess this month and seeing all the fantastic inspiration for the theme that everyone has been sharing.
Please have a look at the awesome Pinterest board  HERE

This is the first layers of my page,

Lots more colour was added with a few stencil additions. . My favourite bird stamps are making another appearance also some die cut wild flowers. 

Each morning we can hear birdsong as the birds begin their day.
I have to say I don't always  appreciate the time they start their trilling and chirping in the summer months.  Still,  they are welcome in my garden, nest in the hedges and fill the day with joy.

Thank you for calling into see me again, I always appreciate your visit.


  1. Love your backgrounds for your sweet birds! I always enjoy hearing the birds in the morning, even if it is before daylight! :)

  12. I have no songbirds to wake to, or even enjoy throughout the day, so you are really lucky, whether you realize it or not. And the background you chose is wonderful and fits so well with the birds, too.

  13. Yvonne, I am so sorry I haven't managed to visit you for far too long and wish I could catch-up with all the posts I've missed. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, I've appreciated that so much.
