This week we are to add a bird on our journal page. As I have only just come home from my holiday in the Highlands this page was done in a bit of a hurry. The background colours were done already, so it was just a case of thinking of what to do. As I own five cats, sorry I mean they own us, I decided to use the dog and cat people of Dyan's.
With very little equipment I have managed with great difficulty a tip in journal page. I will attach it to my journal when I get home. I will also do a bit of stamping on it.
I have used a pamphlet of the pictish brochs of which there are 500 in Scotland I have put some information on my page. We went to see one of the most complete ones near Glenelg.
For the main background I used a scrap page that I had used to ink on. I adhered some pictures from some brochures on the Broch that was near us in Applecross .
When I arrived home I stuck the page in a journal after inking and stamping the background. I also added a pocket at the side to put more information in.
On Go Tag Thursday this week the task was use book print. I have made a tag using the book pages as a background, and adhered an image. I then added some flowers with print on and a few stamped ephemera.
Not my thing really, but I did enjoy doing this one. Luckily I had quite a few stamps that fitted the bill.
The usual distressing background with the large shoe stamped faintly in the background. The others were done on separate card and stuck on. I love the stamp in the bottom left and haven't used it for years.
This week the theme is time, one of my favourite ones. I really enjoyed doing this page and used some stamps that I hadn't used for ages. I have also used one of my favourite time stencils. I am away on holiday in the Highlands so hope this schedules OK, as I find it impossible to do these from an iPad.

I am interested in all types of art and crafts,including altered art, ATCs, painting, and textural crafts, especially embroidery, and felting. I also like to combine paper and fabric in mixed media art. My passion at the moment is fabric books. I love gardening, when the British weather and my bad back allows. My gorgeous grandsons and granddaughter also lure me out of my studio, that is until they are old enough not to make a mess in there
