Its ' Halloween' .......... at
Come and join in the fun with our new theme.
I decided to create a digital journal page,
the kids want to go out and scare a few folk,
at a safe distance of course.
Mother was so worried about them going out she decided to go with them,
she was in such a hurry she forgot her head as well as her hat.
However you celebrate Halloween , stay safe.

A journal page using up some scraps from the pile I tipped up on the table.
It was a mop up background to start with to which I added some strips of washi tape.
This is a photo of how it looked with a few of the bits and pieces and die cuts, before I started sticking them all down . I could have added even more but decided to stop . the pile was never going to get any smaller, no matter how many pieces I picked out.
I even added a few digital pieces while I was in the crafting mood.
I will link to Jo's theme.... Texture
Thank you for calling in today, your visit is always appreciated.
This page would also fit the theme at Try it on Tuesdays..Use your scraps

If I get this post to publish it will be a miracle.
New Blogger will take time and patience to get used to.
This page has been in the making for a number of days
and again I took an easier way to finish it by adding a few images in the computer program I use
My hands on journal page has a messy painted, scratched and scraped base with glittery modelling
paste pushed through a stencil.
I had a few more photos to share but I haven't been able to get them loaded,
Dream, whisper, imagine.......... these words can mean so many different things for many of us.
Time........ the word I didn't include ...... is something we take for granted,
its important to use it wisely as we never know what tomorrow will bring,
so I will leave the three friend with their thoughts and dreams.
I will link to Jo's theme....Texture.... over at
Stay safe everyone

I decided to use only one stamped image [All&Create]
water colour the flowers to make a this simple anytime notelet card..
Next is the journal page I also played around with, I guess that this will have a lot more paint added sometime in the future.
I hope you will join us at TioT;s and have fun creating your art..
I used a stencil and some modelling paste on a kraft card journal page.
Time to stick it all down to the base and add the words..
I had fun with this theme and we hope you will join us at Art Journal Journey this month.

The page in my journal, with a selection of stamps and a mop up background. My water colour paints on the light bulb turning out a bit yellow for my liking . I tried gesso to calm it down but opted to add
the digital image of a light bulb in my experiments to create a tag.

T stands for Tuesdays gathering where we get together to share a drinks related post
I will use that when I have more time to create.
The cats were added digitally they wanted to join the party and visit with Bleubeard and Squiggles.
I have missed calling in for tea for a few weeks,
but I assure you many cups have been consumed as I care for my hubby.
I chipped one of my favourite cups , but as I hate to throw things away,
it now serves as a holder for brushes and pencils.
so I hope this will be acceptable as my cuppa ,
to let me join this weeks gathering.
It may not be today but I will call in to see you soon.

I created this card in the digital program I have on my computer
using my hands on inky splashed page and stamped images.
The splashed page as it looked in my journal to begin with. Stamped and fussy cut flowers came next
This is the page I am saving in my journal,
for me each day has to count.
My apologies for not visiting you all as often as I would like, my priorities these days are to take
care of my hubby.
I hope you are all safe and well.
Please pop over to TioT's to get all the information on the latest challenge theme.
We hope you will join us and share your
Splashes and Splatters.

and have some fun, time for herself to relax and escape the world.
Colouring was distress inks and paints.
The quote I is used is....
Don't think about making art, just make it.
Let everyone else decide if its good or bad,
whether they love it or hate it,
while they are deciding make even more art.
I cannot remember how many times I have been unhappy with the journal pages or card I have created . These days I am happy just to be able to sit for a while and get ink onto paper.
So even if its just one word we hope you will join us at TioT's
and share your art with us there.
and thank you for calling in to see me today.
