Colours of Autum........ at TioT's


A new challenge theme starts today over at........
'Colours of Autumn'.

This is how my journal page began, stencils, stamps of skeleton leaves.. and lots of autumn colour tones.
I had a picture of the fox I wanted to use, he is so like the neighbourhood fox that is a regular visitor in the locality. I often wonder where he is going and where the rest of his family live.
The words and extras were computer generated.

We hope you will join us at TioT's and share your autumn colours with us there.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are very welcome and I hope you are al safe and well.

She loves Art


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

 at Art Journal Journey

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

Use your Scraps at TioT's


A page in my journal using a few of the scraps and bits and pieces that I save in case they could be useful.
I think we all have these lurking around our craft space, so the new challenge theme over at
Use your scraps.
 Have some fun and join us at TioT's.

I used a few of these scraps on the page and  I have to say the pile looks just as big
as it did  when I started.

Thank you for calling in today,
 stay safe and well everyone.

Dream whisper imagine


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

Neat and Tidy at TioT's

The challenge for the next two weeks at Try it on Tuesdays is......
Neat and Tidy

Neat  and tidy is not something that gets created very often in my craft room, so this was a real challenge for me.
I decided to use only one stamped image [All&Create]
 water colour the flowers to make a this simple anytime  notelet  card..

I did use a piece of dark green card  as a background, when I saw that that  the size of the notelet  blended into the background of my blog.

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..

Stay safe.

Texture at AJJ

September at Art Journal Journey
Our host is  Jo from Lets Art Journal 

The theme  she has chosen for this month is....

This messy texture base was my starting point.
I used a stencil and some modelling paste on a kraft card journal page.

I had a few pieces   ready to layer on the base, A fussy cut stamp, material scraps, a piece of wire.

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.

Stay safe.
