Small things .... at TioT's

 A new challenge theme is starting today over at

Try it on Tuesdays

'Small things.'

My first idea for this theme was to make a selection of 

 mixed occasion gift cards, that I could print off the computer when  needed . 

The one with the cake for example is sized at    7 x9 cms.. the others are smaller.

I also made this digital journal page

Yes the page is journal size , but, the image is small.

We are looking forward to see how you interpret this theme

 and hope you will join us at


where you will find all the information and see what we made.

Fantasy...at Tiot's.


 is the theme for the next two weeks 

over at Try it on Tuesdays

I have created a digital journal  scene for this topic, 

where Alice  the mermaid is holding a party for her friends.

The fish swim in,  hoping they won't be late, they  love to dance..

Can you imagine  frogs singing ?,  with Leggy,  the octopus lady dancing,

 to the music  from the  local  Frog Boy Band.

That is the fantasy I can see on this page.

We hope you will join the fun  at TioT's 

,please call over  to see our ideas on this theme

and find all the information,

 we look forward to seeing what you create..

Rainbow Colours........at TioT's


Rainbow Colours....
is the challenge  theme for the next two weeks over at 
The back story to my idea for this digital  page
 is how youngsters love to use bright colours
 when they are using  or playing with paints.
We might think of the beautiful  rainbow we see in the sky, 
 for these  children  its experimenting with many varieties and colours of paint.
I think they are loving  using the spray paint and having fun.
Please share your ideas on our  rainbow colour theme  with us at TioT's
and  pop over to see our interpretations here

Use a Stencil ......at TioT's


                                                                Use a Stencil....

is the new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesdays

This is the selection of starter pages I played around with in my digital journal, using a  simple style stencil as my starting place. I  tried changing the colours , but decided to go with the shade of green

I  used  the stencil as a background for the digital card I made for the TioT's theme.

                                           This is the page that is in my digital journal

I hope you will join us over at Try it on Tuesdays

 and look forward to seeing how you use your stencils.

Spring...... at TioT's



Spring.....is the new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesdays.

 Springtime dreams,  

   is the title I would give this digital journal  page that I  made for the theme.

At this time of the year I think of the springtime flowers in the garden,

 the trees are showing the way with new growth and buds waiting to  share their  blossom.

Perhaps you dream and plan a special holiday,

out walking perhaps we'll see rabbits,  hopping  in the fields,

soon we will be seeing lambs and spring will have arrived.

At TioT's we are looking forward to seeing how you interpret this theme 

and look forward to visiting you .

Its a long while since I joined in any other Blog challenge themes

and after a friendly reminder from Chris,  I will link this page to her theme..... On all fours...   at Art Journal Journey,

I have so many happy memories of joining the folk over there.

Winter Blues......at TioT's


Winter Blues.....
is the first challenge theme  for 2024 over at 
As always we look forward to seeing how you interpret the theme
 and we hope you will join us there.
I have made a digital Birthday card.
 Digital is my go to mode of crafting these days, the hands no longer  grip things as well as they used to.
 Mistakes are easier to  delete , 
where a dropped ink pad in the middle of a page means starting again.

Thank you for calling in to see me here, 
 I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year.
