Follow your muse

Its a stay home and stay safe day for me today,
 the summer has now sent us gale force winds, 
so what better excuse than to have a play in the craft room

This page is inspired  by the theme.... Arrows...... over at 
which I read about and saw a fantastic inspiration page  over on  Susi's blog yesterday

 I will also be joining the folk at
 and Gill's theme..... Inspired by.....

So this page was created with these  two theme's in mind.

An already inked page in my journal, I used collage stamps[ AALL and Create] and embossed a couple of areas . Embossing allowed me to add more colour and stencils over the page without loosing the images.
I did fussy cut the cute lady in her  purple dress.
She is having a bad hair day like I am today.
I made the arrow with a scrap of paper and the wording was computer generated.

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

    Hugs Wendy

  5. A marvelous page is this ! I love it! What a fun muse and she looks fantastic on the page - with her as muse even a bad hair day must be fantastic I guess! What an unique project - I adore the colours and great images and stamps you used here and the colours go so well together - her dress and the background together are inspiration pure and you made me just happy to link to Moo Mania & More as well as to Art Journal Journey Yvonne! Thank you so much!♥♥♥

    We have bad weather since Sunday but it is supposed to get better tomorrow and today I have a bad hair day as well- you are not alone and I am also feeling sleepy the whole day long - and it got so cold after the enormous heat of last week!! Too much for my circulation ...

  6. Actually, that's MY hair every day (grin). This is such an adorable journal entry, Yvonne. I loved how you "dressed" your lady in purple. It's a gem. I LOVE how you used a scrap of paper to create the arrow. I always love recycling! Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey.

  7. Fabulous page Yvonne and the starting page with the AALL and create stamps was cool.
    Great colours and girl :)
    I love the placement of your muse and arrow as the circles look like wheels to me so it
    looks a bit like a vehicle if you know what I mean and apt that it is taking her somewhere :)
    I hope you have got through the day without any problems from the weather, it's been horrible and gusty down here but I think you probably have had it a lot worse.
    Thanks for sharing what inspired you and joining in at AJJ again.

  8. Gorgeous page Yvonne, you always come up with such good ideas. Sorry your weather was bad, here it was quite nice, not too hot, and I was out all day. Have a great evening, hugs, Valerie

  9. Oh I hope you do not get any damage from the strong winds-we get that allot here too but usually not in the summer months-we are just too hot 95 degrees f again today
    I love this page-as I believe I do have a muse that helps me with my crafts and creative projects
    enjoy your day in the craft room hugs Kathy

  15. Thanks for the smiles! What a fun page and using the embossing powder was such a great idea with all the lovely colour you added 😁. I'm loving your lady and I had to smile at bad hair day comment πŸ˜‰. We had strong winds too yesterday, we stayed in and I had to stop myself watching our new apple trees that we planted last week in the garden, poor things! It's cloudy and fresher here today and the trees seem to have survived the ordeal! Happy Friday! J 😊 x

  16. I am loving the wonky lady in purple and your background. Such a great journal page, Yvonne.
