I'm learning to Fly.......

Hello everyone who calls in to see me today
My Journal pages  have been made  with  my theme...... A  world of Fantasy...... at

I am not good with travelling in air planes, it is many years since I did
 and I have no intention of repeating the experience,
 but I  often think that the birds must get a wonderful view as the fly over the land
Even birds, though born to fly,  have to learn the skills when they leave the nest.

I have added a couple of photos to show how this first page   began. I had a think where I wanted to add some paper snippets, grabbed a couple of stencils, some paint
and the messy fun could begin. I didn't use a brush for the paint, just some dried out wipes and kitchen roll.
The papers and washi tape were added next and finally  I stamped the birds and birdhouse. I am not good at hand writing so this was computer generated.

Mrs Henny Penny kept me company and I did actually get to drink my cup of tea  while the paint was drying.

So as its Tuesday
 and its T Day over at Bleubeard and Elizabeths

where we are always made very welcome with a drinks related post

Just for fun and fantasy
 I have  created a digital page
with this cute bird celebrating with a fruity drink. She has earned her wings, she believed she could fly  and she did.

Her fantasy came true

Thank you for calling in and however you spend today I hope it is a good one for you.


  1. Wonderful art Yvonne. That second cute little bird might have learned to fly but it might not be too straight if she finished that drink. Hee-hee. And your journal page has all kinds of great things in it. And this week's mug for T day is great. You have such a great mug collection for sure. I think I need some new mugs as yours make mine look boring. Hope its been a great T day so far. Hugs-Erika

  2. Your pages are both fantastic Yvonne! Delightful are both and I am always in awe of your skills with the digital programmes! The cup is so lovely! Happy AJJ and happy T-Day dear Yvonne! Hugs, Susi

  3. i love your journal pages - the "analog" one as well as the digital one (if you hadn´t noted, i wouldn´t have it identified as digital! take it as a compliment:))
    happy t-day:)

  4. I am loving your art! Like the sheet music added in the first one-and I love the second one allot-had me smiling
    happy t

  5. awe- what charming art projects! I really love them both equally. And your Mrs Henny Penny is the perfect mug of choice for your bird theme today-makes me smile:) Happy T day!

  6. Great, fun journal page. I love flying, and would do it every day if I could. Happy t day, hugs, Valerie

  7. Love your little bird and cocktail page! I would happily join the celebration and have one of those cocktails too ...lol 😉. Your fantasy page is wonderful nd I think flying like a bird would be fun 😀. Wish we could teleport to places that would be a great fantasy, wouldn't it ...lol 😉. Such a pretty hen mug too - happy T Day! J 😊 x

  8. She believed she could, she did, and now she's celebrating :) Here's to her! and to us all ;) Happy T Tuesday

  9. Your fantasy page is great fun, I like these two birds. The one at the bottom looks learned whereas the top one looks as if he is trying a new way of flying.
    The party bird with a drink is obviously having a good day.
    I like the music in the background with both of them too.
    It's two great pieces, Yvonne.

  10. Lovely fantasy journal page and delightful drink art. You had a coffee card with your photo of how you started your page, too.

  11. Two fabulous pages Yvonne, love the birdhouse image and that cute bird having a cocktail is so adorable.

  12. Both pages are great. I love your mrs Henny Penny mug.!
    Happy T Day,

  13. I love your fantasy page, Yvonne. Thank you for sharing your steps. Many Life Book lessons start with a collage layer and then almost totally cover it up. That bothers me - covering up all the pretty bits so artfully arranged. I love your solution and how you broke that mixed media "rule" (in my head).

    Aww, your second fantasy page is darling. Very clever!

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  14. Beautiful journal pages! That bird drinking from that glass is so adorable. I love this fantasy theme.
    Happy Tea Day,

  15. Both your pages are wonderful but your digi page really made me smile!
    Happy T day!

  16. TWO BRILLIANT Pages, full of amazing colour and images, love this post today.xx

  17. I'm finally back online. I'm sorry I wasn't here sooner, because I take my hosting duties seriously.

    I am so impressed with your journal page for Art Journal Journey. I love the way your mind works and your fun fantasy about the little bird who believed it could. I see you have some of those yummy Paper Artsy paints, and I like how you got it on the page. Thanks, dear AJJ hostess for sharing this with Art Journal Journey.

    Like you, I have trouble flying, especially after 9/11. Before 9/11, I flew for my company all the time. Now it's a nightmare, and you have to remove your shoes and be subjected to scans. Other rules are insane, too, like you can't take more than a tiny bit of shampoo, toothpaste, etc.

    Miss Henny Penny looks like she was ready to fly or maybe waddle away with your tea! Your adorable little bird is truly enjoying that drink. I want that umbrella (grin)! Thanks for sharing your AJJ ar, your tea, and your adorable little bird with the fruity drink with us for T this Tuesday.

    Are you ready to show your washi tapes next week? I suspect you will put mine to shame.

  18. super fun page,dear yvonne,i love the flying chicken.
    happy day.

    hugs jenny

  19. Yvonne i love both your pages! When i was young i used to dream i was flying..lol I would certainly drink from a Henny Penny mug..lol Happy T day! Hugs! deb

    Psst... I do apologize for running a little late.....

  20. So glad the little bird believed in herself, but she better not drink and fly. Happy T Day

  21. Great play with paint using the dried out wipes Yvonne. Glad you got to drink that drink too, it's a rare thing for me to drink it whilst it's still warm!! Super Journal pages..
    Hugs Tracey xx

  22. This looks great Yvonne! You know I love those stamps! As for flying - I prefer the train but it's such a long journey to Budapest we had to come by plane! There's a tale to tell!!!Hugs,Chrisx
