I am so excited today as I get to show you my first journal page yahhhhh.
I have always wanted to do a journal and create an art book but was very intimidated by the prospect of drawing or even doing backgrounds ekk I cannot draw to save my life and what supplies do I need ???
As my B/D is in September hubby asked me what I wanted ahhh my art book supplies will do nicely.
So google here I come and found a few things and information but still did not know what to do!
I talked with Anesha aka Crafting Queen as she is so talented with these things and she got me on the right track ohhh thank you for that Anesha you have no idea what you started lol
Found the things I needed and sent a list and links to Brian, think he more than he bargained for as I secretly wanted it all but said anything on the list will do and he came back and said I have ordered all the stuff for you yipppie down side is I have to wait till I go to the UK to bring it all back ( overweight suitcase again me thinks)
But I want to start now lol so found a few supplies in my craft room I had forgotten about and a free online class at Tams her site is called Willow and Friends my lord she is so so talented, easy to follow videos and PDF to go with them and all for free, I want to do all her workshops so amazing and right down my street, I shall be signing up to do more of her workshops as the prices are so good.
I still cannot believe I drew this yahhhh
I do think my nose is a tad small but who cares I am one happy bunny with the result.
Sorry about the long post but I got a bit excited and started to ramble lol.
Thank for popping into see me today, I do appreciate your visits love to hear your comments.
Have a great day all.

Been a busy week here trying to get all my work finished then I had to go down the gold souk to get a pressie for my niece and run the gauntlet of a few shops (before I get to where I am going ) people selling singing camels err no, morning prayer alarm clocks err no and the best one yet! wait for it !!!!!!! genuine fake rolex watches err NO NO NO.
I have to do it all again on Saturday to pick my pressie up but this time I shall go a different way lol, phew it was so hot, it must be at 90 in the shade.
Anyways enough of my waffle and onto my card for today and I decided on a Stamping Bella image.
I coloured her with copic and the papers are from Webster and Bo Bunny, the corner die is La La Land, flowers from W/O, lace from my local craft store, ribbon I cannot remember the make ekkk and I also used perfect pearls on the image and glittered her shoes, wand and crown, the butterfly's have been glittered too.
W/O Cream and Pink
Stamp with Fun - Square
Thank you for popping in to see and have a great day all.

Good Morning Everyone
I have been up since 5 this morning as hubby forgot to turn his alarm off ekkkk and when I walked in the kitchen he nearly dropped his coffee, got all my work done and was shopping at 7-30 wow I love that time to do grocery shop not a sole about.
I had a fantastic holiday in Turkey with the family and took lots of pics (more of those later) and 2 nights in Istanbul with hubby so so good, loved the place and want to go back as 2 days was not enough.
Ok on to my post for today and I have a bit of mixed media to show you as I fancied trying something new also a tag.
I used the Julie Nutting doll stamp and paper pierced it, the background is an assortment of scrap papers that have been distressed and textured, flowers are from W/O.
I will be entering Ali Craft Challenge which is for this month Prima Dolls.
My next is a Mixed Media canvasI again used the Julie Nutting stamps which have been paper pierced, the background is assorted papers which have been painted and textured the background stamps have been done on tissue paper.
I also added splodges of paint and glitter, the lovley mushrooms are from Prima collection so is the top flower.
Bottom flowers are from W/O crafts and this will be my entry for their Anything Goes challenge.
The sentiment is computer generated. I will also be entering the Berry71bleu challenge which is Mixed Media Madness.
