Here comes Summer.... at TioT's

 Here Comes Summer....

is the next theme over at Try it on Tuesdays.

We hope you will join us there.  What do you enjoy about this season of the year, is it the sunny days,

going on holiday,  relaxing in the garden or on the beach, visiting somewhere  that has a history or is modern to look at. the list could be very long.

We hope you will join us and call over to see how the team interpreted the theme.


I used a variety of stamps on the scene, took a photo, then  mounted the piece in the
 digital computer program I use [notes in my sidebar]
My thoughts behind this scene are that Fred took Maud to the beach,
so he could sit and watch the waves and have a few daydreams.
Maud had other ideas she wanted to talk and declared she was a mermaid.
Getting no reaction to this remark I think she would just sit and enjoy her drink.

Thank you for calling in today 
your visit is always appreciated.

I'm NOT catching fish .... for AJJ



      I'm NOT catching fish  

Well its nearly the end of June and I have managed to make

 another digital journal page for Mia's theme....Fish

 over at Art Journal Journey

I am struggling to create any type of art and  journal pages just now.

my mojo went walk about a number of weeks ago  and hasn't returned home as yet.

Add to this, a theme,  that I have to admit has caused me  a  big metal block on the topic. 

I am not  someone who enjoys the sea , I'm more country, fields and woodland.

Anyway I found in my digital library this vintage bathing scene, added some fish

then decided that Molly was trying to catch a toy  boat the boys has lost earlier

 and not the fish who were happily swimming with her friends in the sea.

Thank you for stopping by to see me

you are very welcome here.

Recycle at Try it on Tuesdays

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


I often use an  old calendar ,cards, cut outs from magazines  to make a quick card

 or a digital page.[notes in my sidebar]

I'm sure we all have quite a few cards etc that we have loved and cannot throw away, so why not recycle them and   help save our waste and our planet.

This card is simply cut and layered using an

 old calendar[ Wrendale designs by Hannah Dale]

I also made  digital cards, saves the postage  as well .

 We hope you will join us for this theme and look forward to seeing what you recycle,

please pop over to the TioT's blog to see what we have been making.

Is a Mermaid a Fish?


at Art Journal Journey.

Our host for this month is 

Mia from Craftartista,

the theme she is challenging us with is....


you will find all the information  about the theme and  our rules here

This journal page has a stencil and mop up background

I also used some die cuts of the crab and mermaid before adding  computer

generated fish images and the words

A photo  before I got adding  to many fish,

 I do wonder about mermaids.....are they fish?

 what language would they speak?

and could even imagine them in various situations.

 Here it would be Heidi thanking Henry the crab for looking  after her fish.

or possibly

Henry its bed time for the fish and they cannot play catch  this late as the fishermen will be about soon.

We hope you will enjoy this theme  and look forward to seeing  your journal pages.
