My Support Bubble

Hello, I hope you are doing ok, such sad news we heard on Friday about the Duke of Edinburgh. We were all in tears, but he enjoyed a good, long life, and helped so many people by his good works. 

  Today I am sharing an art journal page which I created a few weeks ago. I should explain  that in the UK people who are living alone can create a “support bubble” with one other household. So this was my reason for creating this page. I used watercolours to bring Tracey’s lovely Characters to life.

Stay safe, covid numbers are at last improving in the UK, hopefully it may be safe to go out again soon... Sadly other countries are not doing so well and facing a third wave. Hoping so much that things will improve for the whole world very soon. 

Thank you for visiting xx 

I would like to add my art journal page into the following challenges.

Happy Easter

Hello how are you today? We are enjoying a few sunnier days here in London.I am looking forward to the sad COVID-19 situation improving so it will be safer to go out again.Like so many others, apart from going to medical appointments I haven’t been able to leave my home for over a year. 

Today I am sharing another card made with the lovely Anita Jeram stamps, she illustrated the beautiful and wonderful “ Guess How Much I love” books. I used watercolours to colour the background and images, and added a little flowersoft and stickles too.My photo makes it look more wishy washy than it really is. 

Wishing everyone a very happy Easter weekend.

Wishing you Happiness

Hi I hope all is well with you. It looks like spring is finally arriving with some sunny days predicted for next week. I have been making a few slimline cards recently, it is nice to work with a different size card. 

For this card I have used one of the stunning new stamps by Anita Jeram, who illustrated the “ Guess How Much I Love You “ books. I created the background and coloured the stamp with water colours,

Hello, I hope all is ok with you. Here in the UK tomorrow is the National Day of Reflection. It will be a year since our first lockdown, and we will be remembering all those who have sadly died from this horrific virus.I am not sure of the exact number now, and I dread to look it up. 

I have like so many others spent a year stuck at home, only going out to attend medical appointments. 

 I have recently been spending my time going through my stamp collection. Which was rather overflowing! I ended up with quite a collection of surplus stamps, which I gave away on facebook. I also came across the first stamps I ever owned which were some lovely wooden Classic Pooh ones. So of course I couldn’t resist having a play with them.

I used them in this little mint tin, which I altered into a little 100 Acre Wood Scene.

I used decoupage papers to cover the tin, and added a little Pooh and Piglet punch out which is also quite old! 

We will never forget the precious lives lost.
Stay safe xx

The Storm will Pass

Hello how are you today? I want to begin my post by thanking Carol from  Crafty Stamper for kindly alerting me that I had won the Stamping Sensations February challenge. I have now added my name to my blog as Brenda didn’t know who the winner was! I am very much looking forward to receiving my voucher from Bee Crafty. It must have been my lucky month as I also won the Paperbabe challenge, and Kim has already kindly sent me some lovely stamps, which I hope to play with soon. Thank you very much Kim xx

I haven’t  made any ATC coins for nearly a year, so I thought it was time to make some again. I’ve called them “The Storm Will Pass”, and let’s hope it really does. I should be getting my second vaccine in a month or so, and hopefully it maybe safe to leave home.... I water coloured the stamped image, and also used clear embossing powder. 
Stay safe xx 

I would like to enter my little coins into the 
Lost Coast Mini Me Challenge
