Create Art

I am having inky withdrawl symptoms so  decided to look through my journals
 to see if I had any background pages that I could use.

I got quite excited when I found  a  page which,was inked, probably mop ups to start with and a bit of random stamping.

My next problem was to find  stamps I could handle  hey presto....feathers,  a bit forgiving when smudged and easy to touch up with black pen.

The jar.... phew... I got the stamp block turned over and onto the page without dropping it.
The words are a stencil

At this stage I decided to add the stitches and black flowers in the digital program I use, just in case my luck ran out. 

I am counting down the days now....7 to go until I hopefully can use both hands.

I will join the folk over at Art Journal Journey
and Chris's theme
Art for Arts Sake

Thank you for calling in to see me today, your comments are always appreciated.


  1. A sweet little stillife you created. I like it much.
    Dear Greetings

  2. This is lovely, and I enjoyed reading your post about it.

  3. My goodness Yvonne! This is brilliant - if I didn't know about your arm I would have been impressed with this page but this is above and beyond etc. etc.! Thank you so much for linking once again to Art Journal Journey! I'm almost on count down with you - hang on in there! Chrisx

  4. I can understand why you are having inky withdrawals. It must be tough to stop doing what you love while you heal. Well the page is super and I think you managed to add the stamped images so they look like you used both hands. Hugs-Erika

  5. Wonderful journal page, Yvonne. I have two hands and have dropped stamps in the wrong place many times. That's why I don't stamp. Yours is brilliant and well thought out, too. It's even nicer that you have joined us again at Art Journal Journey. It's a fabulous entry.

  6. Gorgeous page, love the cool, blue colours. Great that you managed it with just one arm. Have a lovely day, hugs, Valerie

  7. Wow- you are already a one handed stamp pro meanwhile! Gorgeous! I love the original alone without the digital additions and the digital additons are really just the very last great touch! You have such an eye for composition dear Yvonne!
    Happy Thursday and thanks so much for joining again at Chris' Art for Art's sake theme!
    You rock with your one hand creating!

    I can tell you how happy we are here just now:
    Our boy Liyongo has had a big surgery on Tuesday - we are so happy to still have him - he had a bad splenic tumor of 12 cm , but fortunately this tumor hadn't begun a cycle in his body- so it all looks fantastic so far and he is on the way to recover and already at home with us. We are just sooo happy!
    Big hugs, Susi

    1. Oh Susi, I´m so happy your Liyongo is improving and that the surgery has gone well. I am very happy, It´s a very good news, big kiss. Caty

  8. Brilliant page, love the blue.xx

  9. You are getting far too accomplished at one handed art! Good to hear that relief is now only a week away, fingers crossed that it's a very happy outcome.

    Sally xx

  10. Yvonne when you finally get that cast off you will not know what to do with your other hand as you are doing a mighty fine job with the other. Love that Feather, makes for a fabulous journal page.
    Hugs for the week ahead Tracey xx

  11. This is a so gorgeous Art Journal page Yvonne !! Really wonderful, love the colours of the background, love the drops, the stenciled words, the feathers, all.
    I hope you recover soon, and all is right. I wish you a very nice day, big hugs, Caty

  12. i Love this page!
    Happy Thursday Kathy

  13. Hi Yvonne, while I was on vacation, you made beautiful projects. I like this page and also the projects of the last time very much.
    Greetings Carola

  14. What a fabulous page! The background colours with those pretty feathers looks beautiful and I'm loving that you can create art one handed 😉. The stencil wording is perfect too! Not long to go now until you can use both hands, I bet you cant wait how exciting! Wishing you a Happy Friday! J 😊 x

  15. Well, my gosh, I have to say, I couldn't have done that well with both my hands! Bravo! Oh, praying the next week goes really fast for you. xoxoxo
