Hello Friends

Hello Friends who stop by   to see me today.
I will be calling in  at Bleubeard and Elizabeths to share my drinks related post
 because....over there

You can see from the photos that I started off with quite a pale blue colour wash and some crackle paste.
A stencil came next as I am really not happy leaving areas white [ I am trying]

Scraps of papers made the border and the layers for the
girls image I wanted to use.

The stamps were from  Grahics 45 papers

I used stamps for the post marks and the grasses.

The faux stitching was added  with the help of my ruler. After I saw the photo you can see below with  cuppa, I wasn't happy with it  so  I computer generated some  stitching. I am absolutely no use with my sewing machine.  Its years since I have been able to thread the needle and its to old to get a threader gadget .

I have scheduled this post, but  hope I will have internet so I can  catch up with everyone.
Happy T day wishes.


  1. A very lovely page today, Yvonne. Hope you get your Internet back! xoxo

  2. Beautiful journal page, happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  3. Amazing journal page, Yvonne! Have a great day, my friend. Hope you have internet soon.

  4. beautiful journal page. Faux stitching or real it does add a nice touch. And of course I love the postage! Happy T day!

  5. Love the page and the bunny mug Yvonne. Hope wherever you are the weather is good and you are having some fun. Maybe motor racing? Hugs and happy T day-Erika

  6. A very uplifting journal page. Hope you get your Internet back soon. Happy T Day

  7. I like your "sewing" method. A creative way to get the look you want :) What a great spring mug! Happy T Tuesday

  8. Lovely page, Yvonne. I relate to your struggle for white space ;-) The crackle medium is cool and I like the way you layered the torn "rectangles."

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx

  9. What a beautiful page! I love the design with the pretty papers and fabulous photo and quote 😁. The pop of colour from the postage stamps and stamping is perfect too. Happy T Day wishes! J 😊 x

  10. I love the layout and all the layers and the pretty photo - what a wonderful page Yvonne! And your lovely mug makes one happy! Hope you have a good time out!
    Happy T-Day evening!
    Enjoy your time!

    Big hugs, Susi

  11. I'm sorry for being so late visiting. After being out all day and most of the night, I came home, expecting to get on the internet and leave comments. However, what happened was I fell asleep and just woke a short time ago. The boys were acting needy and I laid down with them just for a second. That turned into at least five hours.

    Your journal page is beautiful. I love the G45 faux postage stamps and the ladies you "sewed" in place. You actually fooled me, because I thought it was real sewing/stitches.

    Thank you for sharing your adorable bunny mug and your art with us for T this Tuesday. I hope you have access to the internet, because I would not want to miss you for T day.

  12. Your journal page is beautiful. And I love your bunny mug! Happy T-Day!

  13. A wonderful page...I, too have trouble leaving things white, but I really do need to learn how to! Beautiful art...the digital bits are every bit as good as the stamped images, the torn papers and the faux stitching - I bet your attempt was much more successful than you think. We're always our own worst critics.
    Happy Holiday, wherever you are and Happy Belated Birthday to your son! My two boys also had significant birthdays in the last three years - it's hard to believe they're so old, isn't it, when we don't feel any older, lol?

  14. You've made a beautiful journal page and the BG is a lovely soft colour. Your bunny mug is very cute too.
    Happy day after T day, had problems commenting via my ipad.

  16. Why use a sewing machine when you can do faux stitching as good as that - I thought it was real. It's a fabulous page Yvonne.
    Hope you're having a good time.

  17. I really like this page. It has such a lovely feel to it. I like the crackle and the stitching. Yes, I did notice the stitching was different in the last photo.
    Happy belated T-Day,

  18. A beautiful page - great addition of the faux stitching! Happy T Day! Chrisx

  19. This is a so so Gorgeous Art page Yvonne !! I love your blue pale colour for the background, really beautiful, the image is beautiful over those scrap papers!! Great Art !
    I wish you a very nice afternoon, big hugs, Caty
