May's Creative Challenge- Journaling your HeART out!

Oh! it has been an age since I blogged on my poor neglected pages...and my New Year's resolution has gone out of the window.. in fact does any one read this when I occasionally post????
But here I am again with a double page journal spread.... I started off with lots of yellow ad reddish sprays, from Distress Stain Sprays to Dylusions, and let them run and mingle on the pages.

Add a few of The Artistic Stamper Masks with more sprays , this time in  reds, and a few stamps from Tick Tock plate

Add more stamps in Black Archival.. this time Katy Leitch's Numerical Plate

Finally add a gorgeous girl from the net!! ( I just googled what I wanted and found her, complete with the month of May.


We would love you to join in our monthly challenge, especially if you love journaling! You can find all the details here
Have a creative month

Mad as a March Hare- New Creative Team Challenge

The Spring is coming, and those flowers and leaves are popping their heads up through the soil, and the sun is getting warmer, and yes! March is here along with the spring!!
It's time for another challenge over at The Creative Team Blog, and yes you have guessed it.. the theme is Spring is coming!
I have created a journal page entitled Mad as a March hare.

I sprayed the page with Dylusions Sprays in blues and greens, and then added a Crafters Workshop stencil with PaperArtsy Fresco paints in Hey Pesto and Yellow submarine. I then added stamps from Botanical Plate 1 ( the daisy) and also the simple swirl from the Simple Swirls plate. I also added the bubbles from Borders A6 2 . The birds from Birds of Feather were embossed in black for that touchy/feely touch to the page... I like to be able to feel texture on my journal pages!

I then cut out the Hare , which I downloaded from The Graphics Fairy, and added him to the page and hid him behind one of the flowers, which I carefully cut around.

I do hope you like my contribution to the challenge, and go on join in, you know you want to! You can find the new challenge here.
