Still getting there

....late with last week's inchie which is petunia to the extent that I've still not done it!

This week is mouse

And the current art prompts galore 
36. Starts with G //SCAVENGER HUNT: red, grey, something from a garden, something that starts with M, 3 arrows, dots, piece of a map, 3 stamped images, washi tape or other tape, a piece of a page from an old book or magazine

Yet again I went with scavenger and got everything on the list: one of my arrows is cut from a Cyrillic book page!

Week 34 at colour me positive: whatever you are, be a good one 

Quite by chance a prepped / stencilled background using DI: old paper, shabby shutters, bundled sage, forest moss. A picture of Monet & a section of one of the waterlily paintings from today's Sunday paper supplement and some stamped brushes, paint tube stickers.

And this week is travel
  Thanks to Alison Bomber I had a die-cut globe for this one!

And across at journal 52 I got this page done: keep your head// lose your head

A simple stencilled page and a random stamp out of a grab bag from Chocolate Baroque that I've had ages & never used!

Still some catching up to get my journals up to date but I'll get there - mixed media morsels & dictionary are way behind (5 & 4).... Back to the drawing board now......


  1. Keep Calm, Keep your Head is really good. I like the symmetry of it and there is also something a bit sinister about those dolls heads.

  2. Fantastic journal pages Sally and the mouse inchie. I really liked the spread with the garden and super quote you added.

  3. Love your journal pages. Your inchie is so cute.

  4. Great pages Sally and the little mouse is so cute.
    I'm sure you'll get caught up with the journals, just keep calm and keep your head.
    Hugs, Avril xx

  5. Beautiful artwork and a magical mouse drawing for your inchie

    Love Chrissie xx

  6. Great work this week. Cute mouse. :)

    1. I'm so sorry I'm unable to comment on your posts Ann, I cannot get a yahoo account because it requires a mobile phone number...we get NO SIGNAL where we live so let me say here how cute your mice are :-)

  7. Such a sweet mouse. I agree, that head page makes me think of Alice and "off with her head" :) Sometimes it's not that we are unable to keep calm, it's that someone or something else is after our sanity LOL!

  8. Oh I adore your tiny mouse - love that simple background. Great pages all through, and I'm happy to see the globe in action - looks fab on your lovely travel page.

  9. Some great journal pages and inchie. You have been busy.

  10. such creative artwork! love you little mouse especially

  11. I like the map you have included--I've been to all of those places except the Denver to Wyoming part and we'll be doing that next year for the total eclipse of the sun. Oh, the excitement is palatable!
    Love all your offerings, but I'm quite partial to Monet's water lilies. The Bellagio in Las Vegas has some in their gallery and amazing to see in person. Great sentiment, too. Cheryl

  12. love the map and the inchie. the travel one is great!

  13. I agree with Julia about the dolls heads - but it's a great piece as is all your art work and a lovely little mouse!
