Tea with the birds

Hello everyone who calls in to see me today.
Its T day over at
where we are all made welcome with a drinks related post.

So on the left is a shot of the work surface and the journal I was working in.
The swan as you can see was on  a napkin, four swans on one napkin is  super from a crafters point of view and if you've found them  at a bargain price it  even better value.
 My newer stencils were also having an outing.

A better photo of the page which is A4 size and looks squarish in the
previous photo.
I used Brusho powders and stencil paste for the background.

There it is on the left , with some of the images I wanted to add.[digital notes in my sidebar].
 I was on about my third cuppa by now as I had to wait for the inks and stencil paste to dry out.

I hope you all have a lovely day today and thank you for calling in to see me.

I may be late adding this at Elizabeth, as we will be travelling home  after the Land Rover rally
and this post had been scheduled.

I am adding a reminder here for the current  challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays
Feathered Friends.... there is still another week for you to join us there.


  1. Stunning page Yvonne and such great use of the napkin.

    Hope you enjoyed your time away

    Have a very Happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Love your birdies. I love the swan, and am happy that I have one in my stash, too! Thanks a lot. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  3. I LOVE swans, and this napkin is adorable. You have turned it into a beauty.

    Those TH stencils are incredible. I saw some recently at a big box craft store, but they were so overpriced, I couldn't afford them. You have put yours to great use, though.

    I loved the overhead shot, but I want to know what you are going to stab with your awl (grin).

    Thanks for sharing your journal page and your tea in your cute lamb mug with us for T this Tuesday.

  4. I tried to link you and I can't get my OWN LINK to work for me. I've contacted Valerie and asked her to link you. I just hope she sees my comment on her blog.

  5. The swan under the leaves is just lovely. Nice background work with the brushos too.
    Your little lamb mug is adorable.

  6. This is such a beautiful page Yvonne, a great use of the napkins.
