Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all having a brilliant day. Mine has been a bit busy doing something and nothing. And although I have been busy, I have carved out some time to produce another art journal page. It’s day 49 and this is my effort for today …..


I love this simple page. Some cut outs, a little pen doodling, water colour pencil shading and a little text. This is how the page looked before I started embellishing …..


We’re experiencing a wet dreary day here in my little corner of the northeast of England. The garden needs the rain and to be honest we haven’t had nearly enough rain these past couple of months. So, I’m not complaining if it’s wet. I spent a little time in the garden doing a little tidying up over the weekend. The garden waste bin will be full and ready to collect next week.

I have been hankering after doing a little appliqué work inspired by my art journal work. I keep looking at my pages trying to choose one or two designs that would translate well into appliqué work. I am spoiled for choice. I may dive into my scrap basket to choose some fabric to help in making my choice. Pondering. It’s all a bit exciting turning inspiration into the real thing.

Well, my lovely friends, it’s a short report today. Tomorrow will be wordless Wednesday but before that I will need to produce a new art journal page, day 50!!!!! I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something productive. Until next time,

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

  1. Glad to hear about your rain, as our family & friends in UK have all been saying how dry it is. Just the opposite here in southern Australia with more rain & cooler than usual for April/May. We made the most of the dry weather over the weekend with a tidy up of a corner & now I have a blister on my thumb from snipping some thicker branches on a wayward shrub. Look forward to seeing your next applique project. Take care, stay safe & hugs.


    1. Hi Susan, our rain turned into sunshine shortly after I scheduled this post. I must admit that the rain brought relief. I’m not sure what today will bring but each day is a blessing. So, we’ll take it and make the most of it. Thanks for popping in today x
