A fleeting visitor...

Just thought I would share as he doesn't visit often. This is Hamish...

We did have fun!

I am dotty...

Miscanthus Crafts posted her second lesson for the 'Card making to Art Journaling' Course a couple of weeks ago and I loved it. Her prompt was 'I am dotty about...'.

I set about creating last weekend. I laid down a page of dictionary pages (letter D of course) and put a layer of Gesso over the top. Antique Linen and Lemonade DIs were swooshed over the top. I used the lovely Basic Grey paper stack 'Out of Print' to cut my circles from. To add a few more circles I used a stencil and marker pens. The I doodled and journaled to my heart's content. To finish I swiped the edges with Peacock Feathers DI and added doodles.

I really enjoyed this page. Thank you Clare. I am looking forward to lesson three now.

Have a good week all and stay warm if you are snow-laden like us.


Thanks for stopping by. Hugs Cherry XxX

Life book 2013

In the attempt to ignite and stay focused this year I have embarked on the lovely Tam's Life book 2013 class. I am a little daunted about the year long commitment but I have decided it would be motivating and a way of allowing myself time to do something other than work. Pop over and have a look at what Tam offers here Here is a sneek peek...

It is way out of my comfort zone but I am loving it. Fairy Art Mother/Father (I chose mother) has been our warm up activity.

I needed to do two! I am interested in everyone's styles...not sure of my own at all. The whole concept of positivity and looking at the benefits has left me pondering about that negative voice in my head. Where did it come from and how did it get to be so loud? Why do I give it so much control?

We are off to our friend tonight for a good social eve. Catch you all tomorrow.
