Hello my lovelies. I hope you enjoying some spring time sunshine. It’s lovely here this afternoon. After waking up to frost this morning I had no hope of having a beautiful sunny day.

Oh yes, folks it’s day 14 of my Messing Around Challenge. I’m sticking to my plan. Well actually there is no plan, just a little bit of hope that I will meet the challenge which I set myself with some sort of success. I started this challenge because I couldn’t concentrate on anything for very long. I thought playing around with art supplies might help me focus on something. So far so good. So, without further ado here’s todays effort …..

Day 14

Somehow, I feel that these pages aren’t quite finished yet. Today’s effort needs a little more adorning. I can come back to it when I find something to add to it.

When I headed out to take a photo of today’s art journal pages, I discovered some progress in the garden …..


This clematis is draped over a rickety old rose arch type structure. It grows like mad every year except that I lopped quite a lot of it off last year because it was well overgrown and casting quite a lot of shade onto my little back garden. It seems that this clematis is well determined to grow even though I slowed down it’s progress. I really look forward to seeing these blooms fully open and gracing my rose arch offering hope of good things to come.

The next thing I discovered if this Japanese Acer. It seems that before Easter the branches were in bud only. Now today after a little sunshine the leaves are open and bursting with colour …..


It makes the garden jolly colourful. And colourful is what we need right not with being tethered to our home and garden. And let’s hope the sunshine keeps coming.


Life in lockdown is getting more bearable with each passing day. The government has warned us not to expect any easing of lockdown measures anytime soon. I’m no expert but I expect that we’ll be staying home to stay safe for another month or so at the very least.

Well that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.
