You are............

Happy Mothers Day if you celebrate it today,
but most of all celebrate being  YOU.... 

This is a page in my mixed page journal that didn't start off this colour.
Messy play times, just don't mean paint etc to me.
The next photo shows the original colours,[left] with another version.

The background is  colour washed, then stencilled to add some texture and I used  napkins [Jane Davenport-woman] to add the images and flowers..
I stamped the words onto tissue sticking them in place with Bindex .
Thank you  to everyone who gave me tips a  while ago about stamping on to material bases. This page is, I think linen.

I am also adding this reminder for the current challenge them over at
 There is still more than a week for you to join us  for the theme
Mum's the word.

Thank you for calling in to see me today. 
Have a good Sunday everyone.

  18. Thanks for reminding me about stamping words on to tissue first instead of stamping them permanently squiggly on to a page.
    This wonderfully dramatic page in the original blue is tremendous.
    Changing it to the lime greens and purples really gives it a new and different atmosphere.
