Spread your wings


Nearly the end of June  and  a last journal page from  me for

 Mia's theme over at Art Journal Journey

This is how the mixed media page began in my journal, some time ago I have to admit.

You can see its had a bit of a make over using my computer  and had some pretty butterflies added.

All my good intentions to try to do more crafting  these past few weeks hasn't happened, I'll be positive and hope it will pass and I will get round creating again soon and visiting you all

on your blogs.

Stay safe everyone

Here cones Summer .....at TioT's


Here Comes Summer....

is  the theme for the next two weeks over at

Try it on Tuesdays

Please call over to TioT's to get all the information and see how we have been 

interpreting this theme, we hope you will join us there.

Enjoying the sunshine  down by the sea

 for many over the years has been a wonderful way to spend a warm summer day.

I think the ladies in the vintage swimwear on this digital  journal page would love to be wearing what  the two modern girls are wearing.  

I'm sure they will all have had fun in the sun.

\Thank you for calling in here, I hope you all are safe and well.

For the man in your life at TioT's

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

'For the Man in Your life.'

It could be a Birthday, Fathers Day, Retirement, New Baby Boy et.. etc.

Please pop over to see how we all interpreted the theme.

I made a  masculine card that could be suitable [I think] for a few occasions.

The background is embossed and layered onto a plain white card. The main image [ I think its a TH stamp, I never keep  the packaging] is on a lightly stamped background.

One of my sons had a cycling holiday planned for 2020 and because of the pandemic situation

it was  moved to this year,   it is on hold and will be for quite a time longer.

Another friend's son was going to have a year out and go travelling, also on hold.

I've heard of many other plans that have been  stopped over the past months.

Birthdays celebrated without friend or family close by,

this list could be very long

So I hope this card will appeal to many and that you know that one day we may be free to meet freely with each other and go out to explore again..

Thank you for calling in to see me today, your visit is always appreciated.

Stay safe.

Butterflies for...... Art Journal Journey


and a new theme for the month


  chosen for us  by Mia from  Craftartista

 our  Host for this month over at Art Journal Journey

Please pop over to AJJ to read the details and to see Mia's inspiration page for her theme.

Butterflies are  lovely to see in our gardens at this time of the year,

 they are not as colourful  here in the UK

 as the ones I added digitally to my journal page,

 but they look so delicate and magical as they flutter round the flowers.

This is how the page started before the butterflies were added.

A second print from a stencil, a really old script stamp and finally  a  piece torn from the corner of  a floral napkin .

Thank you for calling in to see me today and I hope you will join us at AJJ this month.

Stay safe.
