Night and Day

The theme on The Craft Barn's weekly challenge this week is Night and Day, to make the same thing twice with night and day colours.  I had a bit of fun with some Distress Inks and stamps and made a page in my journal for this.  I love this big tree stamp and it was a good opportunity to use it again!

I am also entering this for Ruby's Rainbow's Anything Goes challenge.

Journal52 - Collage Crazy!

Two pages in a week, I am doing well!  The 16th challenge on Journal52 is Collage Crazy!  I used to enjoy doing collage a few years ago so got my box of bits and bobs out and made my page using just papers and images, no stamping this time.

Journal52 - Cards

I am now a week behind constantly on Journal52 but never mind!  Last week's theme was Cards and I decided to interpret this as Artist Trading Cards and made quite a simple page using a couple of favourite ATCs I made a few years ago together when I used to make lots,  with a bit of background stamping.

Journal52 - Sweet Treats

Our theme last week on Journal52 was Sweet Treats.  For me that would be afternoon tea which I love so that is what I did on my page!  Plus it gave me a chance to use up some of a very old HOTP kit that has sat in my stash for years!

Calendar Challenge - April

Our prompts for the Calendar Challenge by The Craft Barn are Blue and Umbrella.  Of course I had to use Tim's Umbrella Man for this one, it was either that or a House Mouse one which doesn't fit in with my style for these calendar beer mats!

Journal52 - Spring Clean

Last week's theme for Journal52 was Spring Clean.  This had me stumped for a while as to how to go about this one.  I am finding this journal can't just be all stamping which is my first love as for some of the themes I just don't have the appropriate stamps, so I also seem to be doing some collaging which is how I went about this one in the end!  That is fine too as I also like collaging!

Journal52 - Inspiration Board

I am a week behind on Journal52 and have just managed to get last week's page done,  the theme of which was Inspiration Board.  I take a lot of my inspiration from nature, and also Crafty Individuals products so have made my page using all their products!
