Butterflies..... at TioT's


The new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesdays is.......


I have made a layered card using a single stamped image , with a fussy cut butterfly, 

which was stamped onto acetate and coloured green.

 The base cards are  white, the image layered onto pale green  but its been so dull and wet here these past few days its been hard to get a good photo.

We hope you will join us ,  please call in and see the inspiration from the  TioT team.

As always what you create is up to yourselves, as long as you use the chosen theme.

Thank you for calling in to see me, my blog is sadly a bit neglected these days, but I 

hope to  get myself together and spend some time crafting  soon.

Stay safe. everyone.

Make it Feminine at TioT's.


Make it  Feminine ....

is the new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays

We hope you will join us there

and please call over to see how we interpreted this topic.

I've gone  to Paris for this page, well the background was already started,

 with a few random stamp images and words. 

Its an old fussy cut recycled  image of the  pretty gal, maybe she is  one of the dancers

 from the Folies Bergere wearing a dress like this. 

I added more  glitter to the image  for  a bit more glamour and sparkle.

I am adding  this page to the current theme 

 at Art Journal Journey hosted by Elle at Empire of the cat. the theme is.....Language

and as you can see I have used  the French language on this page. France was a country my family always enjoyed visiting in our caravan.  Using basic school French we soon expanded our vocabulary over the years.

Thank you for stopping by  to see me here.

Stay safe and keep well

Language ..... at Art Journal Journey


and a new theme over at Art Journal Journey.

Our host this month is Elle from Empire of the Cat and the theme she has chosen is......


Please call over to AJJ to read the details and see Elle's inspiration for her theme.


 and words are  something I do not take for granted.

 It  can change how we feel,  communicate with other people,  how we interpret  what we see,

 instruct, educate, even escape to a private world  of fantasy and dreams

My journal page started out with torn book pages, lots of green mop up paint and a flower image.

Next came the flower fairies  you will have guessed I'm now using my computer digital program.

Next I added the words, the language that  could explain what I was thinking about as I created the page.

Was it a world of make believe with fairies at the bottom of the garden or was it going out into the garden to do a tidy up, or,  was it  to pick  up the book I am currently reading. Adding language to a page even just one word changes what we see.

As its a cold day

 I think the book will win.

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