Old ways won't open new doors.

Well,  as you know I am having to learn many ways to do things  with only one hand at the moment.
Crafting withdrawl symptoms  are coming high on my list of things to overcome .
 I have  to find a way around this matter.
Only another 24 days  until I may be able to say, goodbye to the splints.
I have sprayed a couple of pages with ink, looked at some stamps, but that is as far as hands on pages have  progressed.
 I will be sharing  digital pages here on my main blog for a while,[ notes in my sidebar]
 so you can see how I am spending my time.
I have a few new  digital kits to explore and use,  no inky fingers to wash off with this page.
 Lots of layers and effects, that I think,  look a bit  like a mixed media page

If the folk from
Art Journal Journey
won't mind my all digital pages, I will happily come over and join Chris's theme.
Arts for Arts Sake.
Thank you Elizabeth and Susi, I have been over to AJJ and joined in.

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


  1. One of the RULES on the home page reads "Digital artwork is welcome." Because I believe it takes a certain skill set I personally don't possess, I am always proud to see any digital art you create. This is a beauty, does look mixed media and the sentiment is one you probably find prophetic. We are THRILLED you are joining us with your incredible digital art today at Art Journal Journey.

  2. Your journal page is fantastic. I know some people don't think that digital art is "real"art, but as far as I'm concerned, it is. I enjoy creating digital art, too. Hugs, Valerie

  3. Elizabeth stated it perfectly ! We are in awe of your digital skills and I always love your digital pages - and this one is one of my favourites of yours! I simply love it and it inspires me to draw or paint a face again- what I haven't done for months. Your wonderful page is much appreciated and I hope you will show us many more this month as you have some new kits to try out!
    Have a beautiful start of the new month ahead and thank you for all the support of AJJ dear Yvonne!
    Healing wishes for your fractured radius !
    Hugs, Susi

  5. Hope you’re soon back crafting Yvonne and all heals well. Great creating with only one hand.

  8. Beautiful page! Love the details.

  9. I love how you work your digital magic and could quite believe that this would be a piece that you got your fingers inky creating 😉. Such a beautiful page, it has a very calming and contemplative aura - wonderful! Sending you get well wishes for a speedy recovery! J 😊 x

  10. Wow Yvonne! This really does look like a mixed media piece and I can imagine that you will be having some fun with your new kits! I hope the next 24 days go quickly for you - if it's anything like this year has been whizzing by it won't seem like long! Thanks so much for linking this to Art Journal Journey - this definitely Art for Arts Sake at it's best! Hugs, Chrisx

  14. Gorgeous, Yvonne! Really a beautiful though-provoking page.

    I broke my elbow five years ago, but at least I had use of my fingers! I can only imagine how anxious you are to have the splints off. In the meantime, you're playing with new digital toys. Definitely less mess ;-)

  15. You could have fooled me with this one. Will be praying for a full and complete 24-day healing for you. Gorgeous art, no matter how you make it. xoxoo

  16. You're so right - this does look like a mixed media page. Well done, you! LOVE that saying! Never heard it before but it's kind of relevant to me right now, so thank you for that :-)
    Hope you're enjoying your recuperation time.
