Say it with Flowers .....at TioT's

The new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays is....
Say it with Flowers.

Flowers are used for many occasions and in many ways,  we are looking forward  to seeing  how you interpret this theme for TioT's,. Please call over to see what we have all been making.

This is a photo of the hands on original  version of my page, a shaded yellow background with the little guy [a stamped image]  holding his bunch of sunflowers. before I got too carried away to add more digitally.
The words  read....
'I want you to know that someone cares'
I thought straight away to use  this quote  with
 some bright yellow flowers. 
 Flowers, cultivated or wild,
  given with love  show we care, they can brighten a dark day
 and give us hope for the future.

Stay safe and thank you for calling here today.

I will also link this page to Valeries theme at
 Art Journal Journey where the topic is.....Spring

Spring is in the air


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.

Black, white and one colour.... at TioT's


The new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays begins today.....

'Black. White and one other colour.'

I created this first page  [black, white, purple]  using computer generated images.
I wanted to leave an area of white behind the black main  image I was using., easier for me to keep a ' white space'   ,
 this is a  style of crafting I am not comfortable with. I always want to add more .

However I will share with you a hands on page as well,
 with background stamping and colouring  using  shades
 of pink  inks 
 The main image was  stamped  in black.
Its not a good photo , the light wasn't cooperating today ,
 the camera was insisting it wanted to use the flash
this is the best photo of quite a few attempts.

We are looking forward to seeing  how you interpret this topic.
Please pop over to  to get all the information  and see what the TioT team have been creating 
for this theme.

Stay safe and thank you for calling in to see me today.

Spring......at Art Journal Journey

 March and a new theme begins over at

 Art Journal Journey.

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 .
