Billy.... I know you can fly
but that is going to teach your sister .. bad habits.
Another adventure of the bird family
I will be linking to the theme Matilde
has chosen for us this month ....Birds..... over at Art Journal Journey.
I shared Billy learning to fly on my first digital journal page,
this time his sister is about to learn to fly and she is asking her mam if she can fly to the rim of the glass and follow her brother.
I think the answer would be NO.
Thank you for calling in to see me today and I hope you will join us at AJJ.

I can hear Music.......
is the new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesday.
I have created a digital journal page for this theme
using computer generated images [see in my sidebar notes about program and images used]
on a sheet music background.
Little Ellie is having a lovely time,
she loves to make a noise and is lucky to have her drum kit and string instruments
to choose from, I have a feeling that the drum kit like most kids would be her favourite.
The tune in her head and mine is an old song...
'Can you hear it? and I think her mum would like it as well.
the version of this song that I like the best is by Kim Wilde from the early 1980's
We hope you will join us and share your favourite music with us there.
I will also be adding this page to the current theme
over at Art Journal Journey where the theme is...
Play it again Sam.

The 1st of April and a new theme over at
The topic Alison from Craftytrog's Arty Adventures has chosen for us is.....
'Play it again Sam'
asking us to think about our favourite films and songs.
You will find all the information details and our rules HERE
I really had to get thinking about this theme and eventually chose to use a Beatles song...
All you need is love
Written by John Lennon in the late 60's. a song that has stood the test of time.
This page was created in the digital program I use [notes in my sidebar]
with computer generated images.
We are looking forward to seeing how you interpret this theme
and hope you will share your favourite films and songs with everyone there.

Its been a while since my last post but I still have time to share another page for Valerie's theme
Spring over at Art Journal Journey
I have to admit to re using an older page, that had been work in progress and forgotten about for quite some time, but I did smile when I saw the duck trying to fly off to perhaps enjoy some spring weather.
All the additions were computer generated.
Thank you for taking time to call in, you are very welcome here and I hope you will join us at AJJ.

March and a new theme begins over at
Valerie from Bastelmania is hosting this month
and the theme she has chosen for us, is......
This was my starting place, a hands on journal page with a Brusho background and some fussy cut stamped flowers. Photo taken then into the computer program I use to add some digital extras.
I don't know if my little rabbit is taking time to smell the spring flowers, or saying hello to the ladybirds and butterfly. I would like to think he is welcoming Spring and hoping to see more sunshine as the days get longer and hopefully warmer.
We are looking forward to seeing how you all interpret the theme and hope you will join us at Art Journal Journey, where you will find all the details .

'All Loved Up'.......
is the new theme for the next two weeks over at
This was is the journal page I used as the starting base for my take on the latest theme. Background stencils and mop ups with two fussy cut out stamped images [sorry I cannot tell you who the maker is] I used distress inks for colouring.
The words and hearts were computer generated in the digital program I use.
My style of crafting these days usually finishes off with added computer details.
With a starting point that could include a variety of hands on crafting styles.
I will also link my page to the theme What's Your Style ... over at Art Journal Journey
Thank you for calling in today
Stay safe and keep well.

A new challenge theme begins today over at
'Add a Quote'
Please call over to TioT's to get all the information and see we interpreted this theme.
My quote went onto a layered digital journal page.
I think my lady could be reflecting on how time changes us,
the way we may look and see others.
We still feel the same inside but the way we appear changes as we get older.
I found the quote I used on the internet but couldn't find a link to who may have said it.
'Time does not change people,
Time reveals the true face of people.'
I will also link this Journal Page to Art Journal Journey
where the theme chosen by Erika is... Lets Face it.

Lets Face it at Art Journal Journey
is the theme chosen for us by Erika
I started my page with this group of fussy cut stamped images
and wondered what facial expressions they might have if they were stood talking to each other..
In our current times of mask wearing to protect each other from the virus so many of our features have been hidden from view.
I had some pop out faces and gave each girl a happy face
and hoped they would enjoy being together talking about how they are looking forward to when they will be free of covering their faces.
Our restrictions are changing in the UK, time will tell if the right decisions have been made.
Stay safe everyone and thank you for stopping by.

'In with the New'
is the first theme for 2022 over at
where you will find all the details and can see what we have been sharing with you there.
I have made this layered card using one of my new stamps from All&Create.
The image was water coloured, and I used a puddle of green paint on another stamp
to create the leafy surround instead of ink. I think I need more practise with this technique.
The butterflies and sentiment were digital additions.
So I am sharing a new stamp and a new way of stamping an image with you today.
Thank you for calling here and I hope you will join us at TioT's.

'Lets face it'
is our first theme of the year over at Art Journal Journey,
Erika is hosting this month and I hope you will pop over to see her inspiration, read the
information and background for the theme,
that she has shared with us all.
I used a few digital face images for this page, creating imaginary friends for Elsie who is
missing her school friends. Seeing the expressions on their faces
I think they would all be happy in each others company.
It is said that every face has a story to tell and I'm sure these girls will have many as the years go by.
We are looking forward to seeing your take on this new theme.
Happy New Year to you all.
