 Our leaves have now mostly gone as we had a rather strong storm at the weekend, the clocks are on GMT again and the weather is rather gloomy though not yet particularly frosty.  I have been in my workroom doing some art journal work, using scraps for the daily prompts which are slowly filling up the blank pages from last year’s journal and also getting inky trying out colour combinations for the new Villainous Potion.

Here’s a sampling of what has been achieved…

This topper has yet to be completed!

One for a girlfriend that’s mad keen on snowmen and skiing!

On Monday I’m due my fly jab & will almost certainly be offered the Covid-19 booster so here’s hoping my arms are not too sore next week. Meanwhile stay safe and stay warm!!!

 I caught a post about the Time challenge across at Try It On Tuesday last week and I had just finished a rather nice bottle of wine that had a wonderful label so I duly soaked said label off the bottle which was not an easy matter as the glue that is used now is different from the “old days”!

Anyhow, I pondered what journal to use and remembered that I had started using a Dyan Reaveley one some time ago. It just so happens that I had 1 spread that never had been finished and it’s colours worked with the label…. So some Paper Artsy stamps that had not seen the light of day in a while had an airing as well as my handwriting! The page edge is shaped using one of Dyan’s rulers  

Hope you like it!
