Art Journal Journey - My favourite colour is October

On Art Journal Journey - My favourite colour is October, is the theme set by Tracey for this month. I have made a double page in my thin paper journal (I glued three pages together to make it stronger) The background is a mixture of a napkin photocopied, a bought paper and some blot off papers. I have used two tags as the main focus with a few die cut leaves falling from the trees on the tags.

Tag Tuesday - All Hallows Eve

Michele has chosen All Hallows Eve as her theme on Tag Tuesday and I have made a tag using distress inks and various rubber stamps. A die cut of a bat and grave yard, a small October calendar page and quote complete the tag.

Paint Party Friday Week 32 Year 11

 A Willow tit this time on Paint Party Friday. It is a lovely little bird, often mistaken for the marsh tit as they are both found in similar habitats. I don’t think I have seen one here, but we did have some where we lived in Wales as we lived in an area of birch trees, which they love.

Thursday journal with Neet

 Neet has come up with a few more Dyan quotes and the first one is "The journey is the start of the adventure" I have used my small flip journal this time, as all the pages in my large one are the wrong colour to fit in with Tracey's theme of My favourite colour is October on Art Journal Journey.                  Angie has suggested to her friend Paula that they go on an adventure. First of all we have to go on a bit of a long walk and at the end of this walk there is the most incredible haunted house, she explains to a somewhat dubious Paula. How far and how do we get there, Paula wants to know. Well, says Angie we go through the old churchyard and then - hold on interrupts Paula, I'm not walking through any churchyard, far too spooky, especially that one. Oh for goodness sake don't be such a baby Paula, think of it this way The journey is the start of the adventure, you will love it when we get there, it's magical. Well you can jolly well go on your own, I'll sit on this pumpkin and wait for you.

Paint Party Friday Week 31 Year 11

It's the turn of the grey wagtail this week on Paint Party Friday. The great wagtail is the largest of the wagtail family in the UK, and is usually found near water. If you look closely you will see one on the photos below. It was catching small insects in the rill going into our koi pond.

Thursday Journal with Neet

 The words this week are " I never insult anyone, I just describe them accurately" This is the last of Dyan's quotes, the next ones are some that Neet has found. We have given Dyan's a good run and need a break. Amy and Ellie are having a nice Autumnal walk in their local park and have stopped for a while to admire the lovely colours. Sitting on the bollards they are discussing some of their friends and what they might be doing on such a lovely day. Ellie is much younger than Amy and listened in horror as Amy began describing their friends. saying how much time they waste on the internet and how a good walk would do them all a lot of good. It will ruin their eyesight, too much screen time and all those harmful things you can get from the blue light that computers give out. I think they are sad, and need to get a real life instead of all the rubbish they watch says Amy. Ellie think Amy is being very unfair and tells her so. Amy's reaction to that is "I never insult anyone, I just describe them accurately"                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

I am linking this to Tracey's theme on Art Journal Journey which is My favourite colour is October
