Chocolate, love and tea.

Today's colours are happy ones,
 especially when  my fussy cut out girl has a tray of chocolates to share.
The colours are mainly shades of red ,  colours that also  can relate to being loved.
So these are the 'Colours in my World'  today for
Art Journal Journey

The base layers are stencils, paper napkins and a few splashes of colours.
I also added a scrap of material and saved it from ending up in  the bits box , never to see the light of day for another long period if time.
The clock die cut was painted red. I used a brad to add the pointers,  that way it can be whatever time in the day I choose.

Now hello to  the folk calling in from
 Bleubeard and Elizabeths

where every Tuesday we are made very welcome with a drinks related post

I am having my usual type  of brew today.
 I related to the second part of the words on the cup today....  I am tired.
All down to a family get together yesterday, with husband in charge of the kitchen, me eating  far to much food and drinking  a couple of glasses of wine.
Happy Tea  Day wishes to you all.

  4. It is a chocolate and pinkish red kind of T day. You put SO much into your art and your backgrounds. I love that die. I can certainly see why it's so popular. You have made it truly special, too. And I fell in LOVE with that fabric. And to think you had it hidden away until just the right time.

    I had a good laugh at your adorable mug. I can relate to the last part (grin). Thanks for sharing your gorgeous art and your tea with us for AT this Tuesday.

  10. What a beautiful page! It speaks of love to me with the amazing background that you created with the stencils, napkin, splashes and splatters and your adornments are perfect ๐Ÿ˜. There is nothing I like better than spending time with family and after last week I can relate to your words of overindulgence and tiredness ๐Ÿ˜‰. Wishing you a very Happy chocolate filled T Day!

  11. Fun page. I love when a page has movement like the hands of the clock. Every day should be a chocolate kind of day. Such a deliciously, happy page. After your busy day with company, put your feet up and have a chocolate. Happy T Day

  12. What a beautiful idea with the adjustable clock on this happy coloured page! I had some chocolate already - a new to me type with cookie crumbs in it - but I would like to take some chocolate as well from this lovely girl here!

    Happy T-Day Yvonne and I am thinking of you and Ian - all the best!!!!♥
