Jo's theme at  Art Journal Journey. this month is....
Something New

So  to begin I used a new  stamp,  the cute girl with the bird on her arm  and  the words....
'Whatever is good for your soul do that '
came with the set.. 
 A first time inking for the words.
I didn't need another invitation to play.
The background was a mop up and I added some random stamping . I had also used a mask to create the  circle. I know its a small area, something that hardly ever happens on a mop up session, but I did want to leave a bit of white behind my image.

The last additions to my page  were added in the computer program I use..
In my imagination I think birds do have 'play' time, but I have no idea what the game is. I know they  must talk to each other , when you stop to listen to
 the bird song and chatter in the garden or out on a walk..

Thank you for stopping by, your visit is really appreciated.
I'm still using the old and slow computer and looking forward to  good news  from the repair store.

Have a good weekend everyone.


  1. Wow, this is amazing! Your new word stamp and cute crazy girl with her little bird look stunning especially with the white and yellow blending behind them, they seem to shine off the page 😀. I think birds gossip a lot, maybe they are telling each other where the best places are to eat 😉. Thanks for playing along at Art Journal Journey with your fabulous page! Hugs, Jo x

  2. Gorgeous page, lovely colours and a sentiment after my own heart! Have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie.😍

  3. This is fabulous Yvonne, I love the cute little girl. Have a lovely weekend.
