Thursday Journal with Neet

'It's not me, it's you' are  the words this week, and I found it difficult to put figures and a story to this one.                The story is: The two ladies, Delia and Sheila have been to their school reunion and didn't enjoy the experience at all. Some of the others didn't even bother speaking to them, and those that did tended to ignore Sheila completely. Sheila of course was very upset about this and asked Delia was on earth was all that about. Sheila said : It's not me, it's you, I'm not the one with a fish on their head.    The other ladies must have thought that Sheila had gone a bit mad and didn't want to associate with her.                                                  That was my version of it, I've was out of ideas for this one.

I am entering this in Art Journal Journey where the theme 'Inspired by' was set by Eileen who sadly passed away last month. For this one I was inspired by circles and Dyan's figures.

Art Journal journey - Inspired by

 Another mandala for Art Journal Journey where Eileen who sadly passed away last month had the theme Inspired by, which Erika and Chris are doing in her place. I am inspired by circles and they feature quite a lot in my various journals. I kept this one to just a few colours.

Paint Party Friday Week 5

A green woodpecker this week, one that we don't seem to get here, although my daughter who is not far away has them in her garden. These tend to be ground feeders, unlike the greater spotted and lesser  spotted one.

Thursday Journal with Neet,

 Nothing makes me more productive than the last minute. these are the words for this week and I can home in on that one. How many times like now(Wednesday evening) do I come down to my studio to do my journal page, only a few hours before I need to put it on. Where does Monday and Tuesday go !!!

This time the twins Delia and Belinda have gone round to their friend who is organising a surprise party for their mother who has reached a significant birthday. the twins are not good at organising anything, so had to be nice to their friend Miranda and get her to organise it for them. They found to their horror that she hadn't even started on the arrangements. They knew she was fairly laid back, but this was ridiculous.

 They stared to get annoyed with her and all she could say was " Nothing makes me more productive than the last minute" They just had to trust her and let her get on with it.

I and entering this on Art Journal Journey where Eileen's theme of ' Inspired by'  I am inspired by Dyan Reaveley with her quirky sense of humour and wonderful art materials. Neet and I use her stamps for our journals and the inks, paints and stencils for our backgrounds. The figures you can swap around and make different ones. I just wish she would do some male ones. I have been on a few of her workshops which regret fun.

I am trying to type this with one hand as I have a cat on my lap who keeps dragging my right hand down to stop me typing. I am not good at it at the best of times.

Tag Tuesday - Bees

This time a monochrome tag with bees on for my theme on Tag Tuesday. Distress inked background with stamped sunflowers. The lighter one is on foam pads to give the flower some depth.

Tag Tuesday _ Bees

 My turn to host Tag Tuesday for the next two weeks. I have chosen bees as there are grave concerns about the future of these wonderful insects. Pesticides being one of the main problems. Both tags have backgrounds of distress ink. the first one I used a darker ink through a stencil. The larger bee is stamped on acetate. The second one has a separate piece of card that I put through an embossing folder. The bees were stated and glitter put on their wings. My brain is on holiday, I had completely forgotten to put this on my blog Duh !!

 A Great tit for Paint Party Friday  this week. Late in putting it on, but have been distracted by the fact that my car is not well and needs a lot of money spending on it. Time for it to go I think.
