Happy Art Journaling :)

I've not played in my art journal for a long time and Saturday morning saw me just needing the relaxation that comes from playing with paper, paint and stitch.

I'd painted my pages in blues the night before, then decided to tear some of it away!

I had quite a bit of stamped and painted tissue paper on my desk after taking one of Jane Davies' online courses (highly recommended!!) so decided to add some to my pages.  The leaves are a hand carved stamp.

I cut some more leaves then stitched them to a partial page using my sewing machine (I LoVe doing this!!).

A while ago I bought some lovely old wooden printing blocks and used the 'g' (just because I love the font!) to add some more texture to the page

It all made for a happy Saturday :)


  1. What a great page, your homemade stamps are brill.
