Art prompts galore FEBRUARY 26-MARCH 4: BIRD/ SCAVENGER: beige,black, circles of various sizes, stamping with random objects, spray ink or paint, words, an image from your stash, a piece of random ephemera, doodles

I raided my stash box where I knew I had some Paper Artsy birds on a Tim Holtz texture experiment....

And also for a bunch of circles that have come a variety of sources that include DLP happy mail and also ink/paint experiments of my own.

I meant to post this before leaving France but in all the chaos I forgot!

We took our time heading home, leaving on Wednesday & arriving back on Sunday so no art pages as such to share this week.

I have an inchie to share that was made in advance :-) Duck

And I managed to put a spread together for this week's art prompts galore MARCH 5-11 is: KEY //Scavenger: Dark pink, silver, zig zags, diamonds, a quote, a person, something vintage, some black ink, dots, something from your stash

The journaling will be slow this week as I need to clear out my workroom & bedroom before the painter comes next week and then the following week it's time for new flooring throughout the whole house!!!

I'm going to be very busy so bear with me....

Rudolph day and more

A bittersweet moment for me! Today is the day my brother would have been 55! I still have difficulty getting my head around the fact that he is not here anymore.....

As it's Rudolph day I have xmas cards to share 

Also journal 52 has moved from Friday to Wednesday so here is my version of stillness 

And colour me positive is all about perseverance...I did a spread & realised it was in the wrong journal! So it true " perseverance " spirit I did another!

I hope the wintry blast in the UK has not been too cruel...we are due snow here on Tuesday just as we are due to leave on our journey home to Scotland!

I will see you soon....
