I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

A little bit of time to myself




Hello all, and happy Sunday! 

It's been a bit quieter here since all that PaperArtsy excitement at the beginning of the week, but today I'm back with yet another sneaky peeky post. And after yesterday's Artistic Outpost creation, nicely chilled out, we move to my first November post over at The Artistic Stamper.











I'd love it if you have time to hop over to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog to have a look at my latest art journalling effort.  










I've finally been putting ink (and paint and paste) to paper in my Dylusions art journal, bought several months ago and pristine until a couple of days ago. There'll be no stopping me now.

Hope you have a wonderful day doing whatever makes you happy!

A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.

A fabulous page Alison. The mix of textures give great dimension to start the layers and then come the wonderful subtle swathes of colours. Love the crackled clock to finish it off.

Looks beautiful !!! Love the colours and effects of the crackled clock on the last sneak peek ! I'm going to have a complete look on it, but in the days and weeks to come don't worry if I can't leave many comments... I'm so late in my Christmas makes now (not started yet Argh !!).

Oh my dear Alison, the background you created was SUPERB,a beautiful clock you made, when you started with those Gibson Girls something magical happened, your creative spirit took over and worked it magic to finish the page. I know I'm dramatic :), this post has touched me deeply. It is very important for you to always take some time for yourself, and creating this page has showed you that, isn't life grand, thanks for sharing that creative spirit with us, your still the BOMB**** in my opinion, hope you have a wonderful week with a wee bit of rest in between, ((( BIG HUGS)))..
