Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all having an enjoyable weekend. I also hope that you’ve all settled into the new normal. Sarah and I are staying home in order to be well. I understand that it’s not easy for any of us. Our freedom to roam has been taken away from us for a very good reason. That invisible enemy is a killer.

Apart from household, not many though, I have been doing a little hexie work (I will post progress soon) but mostly I have been working on my art journal. That includes searching the internet for new ideas and techniques that I can use to change it up a wee bit. I seem to keep going back to the same thing over and over again. So, here’s my effort for yesterday …..


I made a list of ideas I wanted to include, one of which was bunting and a bird. I have since added several other things to my list which will take me into next month. So, I may be forced to carry on with this challenge until my art journal pages run out. And now for today’s effort …..

Bright circles

This one was really fun to work on. I used a funky bag which I cut into strips and used in the background. The flower petals were made by using some of the Brusho pieces I created at the beginning of the challenge. And of course, I used my trusted water colour pencils to add shading and detail. I would say that I have used my water colour pencils in every single journal page I have produced. Along with my water colour pencils my other favourite tools are my few stencils. If I were to invest a little money into new tools, it would be purchasing a couple of new stencils. Perhaps once the shops open again, I will consider it.

My washing machine is whirring away and the scones I baked a little while ago are cooling on the racking. Sarah and I will have a little tea party in a while. We may even sit outside to party! The weather has been favourable for quite a few days. I can’t remember the last time we had rain. I wonder what kind of weather May will bring? there’s only a few days left in April !!!

So, my lovely friends, I guess that’s my report for this weekend. I hope you have a super cosy day doing something you truly enjoy doing. Be strong, stay home and be well. Until next time,

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

    Day 26 of creative fun…thanks Lucie.
    I look forward to catching up with you journaling.
    Mystery of leaving comments solved…phone versus notepad… wins


  2. I’m loving these pages & seeing you grow in confidence with your art work. Your weather sounds gorgeous, unlike ours, though I must remember it is autumn. We’ve had 3 times our average rainfall for April in our little corner of West Gippsland. Have a good week, take care, stay safe & hugs from down under.
