I'm not crazy

A little bit crazy today!.
well not me but this journal page seems to have everything added to it today.

I'll   start with a cuppa which for once I did finish drinking before  I got into creating mode.
So my first call will be to see friends over at
where we are always made very welcome with a tea related post

First layers were pieces of a torn napkin.
Random stamping came next.
Oh dear this seems to be getting brighter. The next  colour I added was a  few brush stokes of 
watered down white gesso. The girl is fussy cut from a pre printed Jane  Davenport page.

As you can see on the left, I am now in front of the computer and into the digital program I use.
Tea day friends I hope you notice the water I am drinking here.......... folk its not always tea to hand.

This is also my page for today over at
 Art Journal Journey,
 where I am having a super time this month with...
Colour in my World..

Todays colours are bright happy ones, to make me feel happy.

Thank you for calling in  and I hope you all have a happy day.

  5. What a happy page, the napkin and stamping created such a bright and cheery background - beautiful! I loved seeing your digital world with the images on the computer screen, I find it all so interesting 😀. I'm loving the bunny rabbit on your mug too. Thanks for spreading a little happiness today and wishing you a Happy T Day! J 😊

  6. Happy colors and bright colors are the same thing in my book. And you have certainly created both happy and bright. Even the gesso couldn't completely tone down the bright beauty of the girl. This is a fantastic journal entry straight out of Alice in Wonderland. Seems to fit right in with your bunny mug, too. I was also delighted to see that you were not just drinking tea this particular day, but also had a bit of water, too. Thanks for sharing your considerably lovely art, your bunny laden tea, and your bottled water with us for T this Tuesday.

  7. That napkin is gorgeous and really added some details to your journal page. And the quote is fantastic. That's I how feel lots of time. Ha-ha. It must have been one of those days since you drank your coffee so fast :) or maybe you had already had your coffee. Anyhow, have a great T day. Hugs-Erika

  8. Wow Wow what a wonderful journal page everything is so beautiful of colors delicious I love it. Top !!

  10. Love this brightly colored fantasy page Yvonne! Brilliant coordination of the napkins with the stamping background. Happy T day!

  11. What a fun page! I love the bright colour palette, brightens up the whole room today! The napkin background is very clever and that sentiment sure sums up how I feel most of the time!! I'm a little distracted by your coffee mug, dang that is the cutest mug ever, just look at that sweet little bunny!! Love it, and love your page too!! Sending hugs :)

  12. LOL, I love that quote that you used on your page. I love the colors, too. This looks like it was a fun page for you to create. Happy T Day!

  13. Love the bright and happy colours. Reality is sometimes so dreary we need to flee to a place more crazy and colourful. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  18. Hi to reply to your comment on my post today--I watch the Pioneer woman from time to time-she does really have some good ideas for foods and especially for when her kids were really young--she does not cook "healthy" though we are seniors so have to really watch that for us now--and I never got from her that she recycles-etc she has really gotten big here in the states-wal mart a big chain store has picked up her line of dishes, towels etc her line is very beautiful but sigh made in china and I don't like that if I have a choice

  19. Yvonne just a great journal page! I love the quote too! Happy T day! Hugs! deb
