Today is a Great Day

Today I have had  another inky day, to create a bright  Grungy background
 so I can go to join the folk again over at 
where Gill has chosen this months theme.... Elegance and Grunge.

The base of the page was sprinkled with   brusho  powers and sprayed with water, for me a quick way to get an instant grungy, messy  look.
The left side, across the corner of the page  is a napkin,  with this large ladybird. I added extra torn off pieces to add some interest .
Now came the hybrid extras,
the word quote and flower are digital additions.

Thank you for calling in to see me, you are very welcome
 and your comments are always appreciated.

For digital information
please see notes in my side bar.

  10. I love this Yvonne. I like all the color and flowers and that big ladybug. I'm kind of a buggy lover, especially good bugs that is. It is a great day when I get so much sunshine from your piece. Here it is dark and rainy and they say it will stay this way for over a week. Really I'm ok with that since surgery is coming up and I can't get out and about once that happens. Better napping weather.:) Anyhow, enough about me. I do love this a lot. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs-Erika

  11. Gorgeous colours Yvonne and I love the ladybird!
