Hey you........

It took me a while to find my box of paper scraps, it had been put on a high shelf . I couldn't bring myself to throw  scraps out,  as one day.... they could be useful. I think many of us are guilty of this. I  covered my journal page and fussy cut the woman from an old magazine
 then added a Leonie Pujol  word sticker phrase.
It is a busy looking page  with lots of patterns  for Erika's theme PSPP

The other side of the journal spread is a little calmer to look at.
 I left some white space at first, but returned later to add a bit of random stamping

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


  1. Both pages are lovely, I especially love the one with the patterns. I had a dress like that back in the wild 60s, fashions seem to come round again and again! have a great Sunday, hugs, Valerie

  2. An elegant lady could be from today's style as well, and a sett of textures offers a great group where to choose.
    Have a happy Sunday xx

  3. Quite lovely art, too, dear Yvonne. Hope you are feeling better? You haven't mentioned it. I'm giggling because at my house, everywhere you stand has a box of scraps within arms' reach, lol. Well, seems like it anyway. When am I going to use them all? xox

  4. What a gorgeous idea with the elements and quote! A wonderful entry for Erika's PSPP topic! Thank you so much for such a wonderful page. I also love the calmer page - gorgeous! Happy Sunday dear Yvonne!

    Big hugs,

  5. Beautiful your creativity goes way above and beyond this..x

  6. What a cool and clever page Yvonne - love it!
    And your other page is as equally as beautiful but in a more gentle way...
    love your use of the green stripy paper to match the opposite page as well.
    Hope you're having a lovely weekend... Gill xx

  7. OOhh these two Art journal pages are Wonderful Yvonne !! So creative your soul. I love the first one, because of the mix of patterns, and the second one because of the beautiful image and the quote, yesss, we are all fabulous !! :) and creative too.
    I wish you a very nice afternoon, and send big hugs,

  8. Both sides of this spread are adorable, Yvonne, but I admit, I really like the wild side. It has so many wonderful patterns and it represents Erika's theme so very well, too. It's a lovely page and your fussy cut lady stands out with that incredible dress. Thanks for sharing both these spreads with us at Art Journal Journey.

  9. A fabulous page Yvonne! That dress is really striking!

  10. There are sure a lot of great stripes and dots and pattern on this page Yvonne. I love it. Huge THANKS for joining the PSPP challenge at AJJ and I am wishing you a wonderful new week. Hugs-Erika

  11. I really like those layered paper scraps - dots and stripes galore, and her confidence comes zooming off the page in that striking dress. Just love the light, bright airiness of the facing page too, there's a simple 1920s elegance to it which really appeals to me.
