Journaling time

Well, I've had a productive weekend thanks to the rubbish grey & cold summer weather that we are currently continuing to experience here in the north east of Scotland.

I've got my DLP use a crossword / sudoku / word search and have even managed to produce some "found poetry" at the same time!
"Do you remember when art was total entertainment"

I had a lot of fun doing this one! I had to do something on the back as the black pending used to outline bled through....
I added a rejected TH June tag piece, some borders and some fake hinges (paper artsy)

Then I moved onto the JOURNAL52 page under the sea
I recently found some marbled papers that I did YEARS ago whilst doing my C&G creative embroidery and they were just the thing for stamping my sea horses onto (L Inkadinkadoo, S Heritage)
The dolphins are off a birthday card from a few years back, the foam fish came out of the grand children's craft box, the seashell sequins might have come from John Lewis and the fish is a freebie Craft Stamper stamp that's done on a mop up with a little extra colour for the seaweed, borders,head & tail and I've added some frosted "micro" type beads to the main body

That's the journaling up to date this week and I'm tempted to see if I can find a nice mermaid to add to the mix. I wonder what I can find on Pinterest???


  1. Fabulous set of journal pages, love the under the sea page.

  2. I'm glad you showed us a close up of your fish. I love that stamp and love sea themed projects in general. You have been busy and the results are great.

  3. Wonderful journalling - love how you've incorporated your June tag leftovers (there's an idea!) - and the underwater panels are fabulous!
