Still getting there...

DLP add something organic to your PAC 

Larch tree twigs individually wrapped with different variegated machine embroidery threads and then wrapped together in a small bundle 


Journal 52: sunrise or sunset

I took this picture on our last morning at the chalet, a view that I see every day in an assortment of light conditions and that I love a lot. Here the sun was just starting to hit the peak of the Grande Seolane mountain and as luck would have was also casting sunbeams across my page!

Mixed Media Morsels: play with stencils

The same stencil (TCW mini cell theory) & assorted distress inks to create the background and a darker ink to create the border- stamped message in the centre was done with multiple alphabet stamp sets.

Positiv Journal: happy mail
More saved scraps found a home!

Art prompts galore:5

And it all started with a large 5 advert from Chanel.....
I may yet go on to do the scavenger page too as it's always fun to be able to use those small saved scraps :-)

Every inchie Monday: SKY

It was a toss up between the sky above us or the SKY tv logo and the paper scraps on my desk decided for me!

I also got a birthday card made for my aunt who turns 80 next week - it will be her first birthday without the company of my dad in many a year as he would travel over from France at this time of year...

I succumbed to the lure of the wildflower Thinlits as I had a 15% off voucher!

More work to do and that will be including final decisions on what to pack for our trip to the USA, I can't believe that we will almost in Boston Massachusetts this time next week and I'll be having a whole heap more pages to catch up on when we return - this is one trip where I don't take any crafting away with me.....I stock up on new goodies instead lol.

Read you all again soon...


  1. Great artwork today Sally, love how you've captured the sun rays on your page and photo.
    Lovely card for your Aunt, I'm sure it will mean a lot to her.

  2. More super art pages sally. The birthday card for your aunt is beautiful.
    Have you started your shopping list for the craft chops in America, I bet you come back with many goodies.

    1. TH dogs stamps/dies await my arrival courtesy of Blitsy!

  3. Lots of fabulous details and projects Sally, I love the simplicity yet beautiful look of your aunts birthday card. Have fun on your trip and enjoy hobby lobby and Michaels, I bought loads back having collected coupons to use and then they had 50% off one range that included metal embellishments and flowers. Taking an extra bag with you? Xxx

    1. No hobby lobby but there's Michaels, joann's & AC Moore so I should have no problem with my coupons lol & YES there is always an extra bag :-)

  4. Dear Sally, love all your goodies this week. The variety of materials and methods you use is just astounding. I like how you used thread on THE LARCH (w'eve been watching a bit of Python, ha!) And the cellular MMM bit, that's cool.
    DO have a bit of fun in Beantown. I could think of a thousand things to do and see...and then there's all my family, too. Can't wait to see your travel notes (and what you do with all the "stuff" from my favorite shops!). Godspeed. Cheryl

    1. I can't comment on your post as its on Flickr which I can't sign up for as it needs a mobile phone link and I live in a black reception whatsoever.....that's 2 of you that I can no longer comment on :-((. Very nice work you shared too!


    2. I appreciate your thoughts, Sally. I just wanted to get the stuff out there...I'll be blogging later this week. Say hi to my parents in York Beach. Do stop and see Cape Neddick lighthouse, aka Nubble Light. It's the beacon that reminds me most of "home." And LOBSTER! Makes going through Logan Airport all the worthwhile. c

  5. Gorgeous time of the year to be visiting MA. I know you will have a wonderful time. Very nice pages and inchie. I really love the card you made for your Aunt!

  6. love the sunrise! all the stenciled work is colorful and lovely. The inchie is nice, love the blue tones. Beautiful card for your Aunt

  7. lovely art work - I love the twig wrapped in thread and your blue sky is a very nice inchie

  8. Lots of wonderful projects and avery beautiful inchie

    Love Chrissie xx

  9. More great artwork Sally - you've certainly been busy again and great depiction of Blue Skies! Nice card too.

  10. What a lot of treats - adorable inchie, and I love the card you made for your aunt - it will be a difficult day for her, no doubt. Fabulous pages all the way - but those wire-wrapped twigs take the prize for me again. Not sure why I find them so delightful, but I do!
