It's April!

I can't quite believe that a quarter of the year has already vanished & never a by your leave!

I've been having some fun with my journals....

Colour me positive : HOPE
I had used my gelli plate to put some paint down on my pages & I decided that as the colours were quite springlike I would stay at that spread & do a collage with various elements from my stash box - it feels good to be using bits & pieces that I've had for ages.
The nest came from a stampin' up catalogue, the bird tile was part of a Graphic 45 freebie pack, the bird ticket ??? The daffodil corner came from a book I dismantled ages ago & the round bird tile is from  another freebie pack. On the right hand page I've got a mini image from the back of a birthday card - it's apple blossom, the pink flower was another freebie as is the row of trees along the bottom, the strip of green washer die cut paper is a leftover from another project & the small flower tile placed over it came from an ATC, the paper border & lace on the opposite page were also in the stash box.

Art prompts galore: SPACE

I found this image in some colouring pages on the recolor app, I don't know if it's a Liechtenstein image or not but it reminded me of Jane Fonda in Barbarella!

I printed it off....and ended up with a smaller version....lost strips at the sides!
She's been lightly coloured with metallic silver & pewter pencils for her space suit & ive added space related movies down the left (including spelling error star treck instead of Star Trek!) and a list of the planets down the other side.

Journal 52 SEEDS & include a quote

More paint spread over the page & a little texture going on that I think was created with a wooden picnic knife! I've stamped dandelion type seeds around the edge of the page, added a couple of stencilled seed heads with versamark & holographic embossing powder. I wrote my quote & added a stamped / coloured image of a watering can full of flowers

After all that fun it was time to cook supper.... A real treat at home....Wild red deer loin steaks that I pan fried & then flambéed with some brandy, baby tomatoes & caramelised roasted parsnips with garlic confit....washed down with a couple of glasses of Prosecco wine....very fine it was too!

Have a good weekend ;-)
