Diary Day week 4

Friday is Diary Day
Week 4 of my  weekly Journal Dairy.

The next  spread in my diary  had a pre- printed colouring page. [on the left].  Not an image that I would have chosen for myself,
 but this is part of the fun. 
 I added two stamped images of the birds.
I think the bird looking  from the side lines cannot believe what he is seeing.
Gesso and tissue were used  to cover up the quote as I wanted to add  some positive thoughts.
This image was sure out of my comfort zone.
I used distress ink to give more colour to the background. 
The stencils were handy  and added to the messy fun I was having.

Thank you for calling in today, you are always very welcome here.


  1. You have created a wonderful journal spread for this week, so bright and cheery and just what we need right now. Have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie

  2. I am so glad you have chosen a day to share your art calendar each week. It will be fun to see each page as it turns. Gosh, I would probably NOT want to use that image, but I like the new sentiment you used rather than the snarky one in the journal. I was totally impressed with the inks and how you colored your butterfly lady who had a rather unique tail. I really like how this turned out, Yvonne.

  3. Awesome Yvonne! What a cheerful page in you calender and I love the advice the mermaid gives! Yeah!
    Happy start of the weeken for you!

  4. Such fun pages! I love how you have altered the page and used the positive wording - perfect 😁. I had to smile when I read that the bird can't believe what he is seeing 😉. Your creativity and imagination is amazing and visiting you each Friday to see your Diary makes me very happy, thank you! Wishing you a very happy Friday and weekend! J 😊

  5. I looked at that and could tell it was Dyan Reavely and not you. But it is a fun image, and has to make you laugh a little bit. I think the birds work perfectly with this page.:) Hope you are still enjoying your new calendar journal-it looks like you are! Happy Friday! Hugs-Erika

  6. Great fun quirky image and love how you made the page your own with the sweet birds you added and words.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend Yvonne.
