A Tag and Diary pages.

Faces is the theme for the challenge over at 

I used a random stamped background for my tag coloured in oxide inks. 
The main image I used is   from a  freebie set on a magazine. I have to say I bought the magazine for the super variety of free stamps.
The trims came from my stash of ribbons and feathers etc.

This is the page I  will be  using in my journal dairy for May

The usual stencil background from me with some
Studio Light cut outs.
Quick and easy  to create , but fun was had as usual.

When I put this page together I had no idea that my blog friend Erika would be hosting this months theme.....'In the sky/In the air at
 Art Journal Journey
I hope my little girl looking for dragonflies, on a warm spring day,
 will be acceptable for the theme.
The phrase I added suited my mood today, I was happy in my craft room, on a lovely spring day,
which although it looked bright, it was still very cold.

Thank you for calling in today, you are most welcome here.


  1. That's a wonderful tag Yvonne, gorgeous colours and love the stamp you used. Thanks so much for joining us again at Tag Tuesday. The diary spread is lovely and looks so sunny. Love the little girl on the right. Off to bed now, so I'll wish you a good night. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Wow, both your tag and journal pages are gorgeous. Great artwork.

  3. The tag is great Yvonne. She is quite a beauty. And your calendar is amazing. I like the dragonflies and that little lady. I was looking at her in my packet of punch outs yesterday and thinking I need to sue her soon. It is perfect for AJJ so big thanks for sharing it with us. Happy May. Hugs-Erika

  4. I used to use tags so much and stopped for a while but I'm happy to say they have found their way back into my background pile. Your tag is beautiful what a lovely image some of those magazines have great freebies included with them. I've been known to buy a magazine solely for them too! Love your Diary page Yvonne, Craftiness sure is Happiness :))
    Hugs Tracey xx

  6. That's a lovely tag, Yvonne. The idea of buying a magazine for the free stamps is not lost on me. I would do the same, I'm sure.

  12. Isn't it good when you've just made something and it fits in with the new AJJ theme. The little girl is really sweet and Springlike and I think the dragonflies are looking for her.

  15. Very nice on both the tag and the spread and what serendipity. I am actually trying to finish one for AJJ, the one I began last month. Lucky for me I can segue' it...make it work. I'd also told Sandie I was gonna try and make some tags to put on cards, there see that is my practical reason. May have to detour off the journal page for a bit. I wish I worked faster but then I wouldn't enjoy it. xoxo

  16. A lovely tag Yvonne and your calendar journal is fabulous - love the quote on bottom.
