There must be a story to tell.

Back to using my  kraft paper journal again today.
I have to admit to enjoying leaving some space on the page. 
Gesso base again with some random stamped leaves, it kind of looks a bit misty to me.
I added some lace and a cut out material flower. 
The found relatives must have a story to tell, I hope they share it with their little sister.

A page for...

where Erika's theme is Vintage or Modern

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


  1. It's a beautiful page dear Yvonne the most beautiful details and the quote is a hit! Thank you for yet another fabulous entry for Erika's theme! ( Linked it)
    Have a great day!
    Hugs, Susi

  2. Old days charm and beauty. Lovely vintage-style.
    Have a happy day xx

  3. I love your Kraft journal pages Yvonne, with your favourite white gesso, they make for a super background! This is another fabulous vintage page with a great story to tell indeed!

  4. This is perfect for AJJ Yvonne. I do like these craft paper backgrounds you are using lately. And those TH relatives are always great. You used yours quite nice here! And it's an excellent quote too. It is true how we all have our stories, and they are all so interesting in their own ways. :) Hope you are having a super day. Hugs-Erika

  5. A fabulous page Yvonne, love the figures and sentiment.

  6. Wonderful page! It has a lovely vintage feel and the background looks magical, I think they have a story to tell their little sister too 😉. Happy Thursday! J 😊 x

  7. Wonderful journal page, hugs, Valerie

  8. I'm trying again, Yvonne but yours is one of the blogs I've already tried to post on 4 times :-( My comments are just disappearing!

    I love this and it does look misty - great effect. I think everyone has a story to tell, even though we usually think our own story is uninteresting... or boring! These are great images and you really could let your mind run riot, couldn't you? Love the way you sat the little girl on the lace - she looks so demure.

    Great page.

  10. As always, I was enamored by this latest journal page. Add a bit of lace or crochet and I am hooked. I like that you didn't cover the entire page with paint or gesso. I think it looks so much better. BUT, that sentiment is the absolute BEST for this entry. Thank you so much for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey. It fits Erika's theme perfectly.

  11. Lovely page takes me back to photos of my mum and dad and the work of art is gorgeous. Love the hessian flower.xx

  12. A fantastic page with agreat message for all. Love the use of the blank pace it does show up the rest of the page so well.

    Love Chrissie xx

  13. awesome page again - and i loved how you placed the girl on this stripe of lace!

  14. Sweet sisters that work very nicely with the lace & textile flower on that gesso/Kraft page

  15. Love the Kraft paper background with the Gesso on - it does look kind of misty/dreamy and sits so well with the images. I love how you placed the youngest sister on the lace, gives her some ground.
    Just making my way randomly through Art Journal Journey and so glad I called here.
