A couple of journal pages

Here are two journal pages I've done recently, the first one is based round the image which is from Deviant Scrap

I bought the large butterfly and text stamp from Christy Tomlinson and then didn't know what to do with it, so did a journal page

The sun has gone into hiding here, still warm, but dull.  Hope you've got better weather.

Phew it's hot!!!!

Well at long last the sun is out and it's hot, hot, hot here in Deepcar.  We've got our two grandchildren here for the week and we met some relatives for a pub lunch then they  went swimming, loved the wave machine and the water flume, but boy was it hot and humid in the place.  They're both sat quietly, one reading a book, the other playing games on the iPad, so took this chance to do this post.

It's a page I did last week in my old ledger, I should be dieting and I was feeling guilty for not sticking to it.....oh well, maybe next week.

Golden paints and Dylusion inks, image I think is from Tumble Fish Studio.

Little Gift

Went for lunch to Sandy Poppins yesterday and I decided to make her a little gift.  It is a notebook and I got the idea from here, but mine is completely different

The front and back are made by spraying Dylusion inks through stencils onto good quality paper, I used 4 different colours, the insides are made out of some journal paper I think from Prima.  Stamped using T!m Holtz, made a dangly thingy out of a stamped elephant onto shrink plastic and a muse token.

We had a lovely day and Sandy cooked a fantastic lunch.  We even managed a trip to Ikea!

Last Friday was the regular art journaling day at AFTH, I managed to almost finish two pages and then did a bit a home, as usual Dy was full of inspiration

Everything used on these pages are by Dyusions except the border on the second one.  The border I had done I didn't like so just used some paper from stash.  If you look closely I also used some liquid pearls and stickles.  Wonderful to rediscover them again, I'm using them on everything, lol.
