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...

The glorious influence of summer

Hello all!  I'm here with a final inspiration journal page for the Summer Countryside theme I'm hosting at Art Journal Journey this month.  I was so honoured to be invited to host, and it's been such a joy seeing all the amazing pages you've been sharing.  For my final page, I've kept things simple with a soft framing of a watercolour doodle I painted at the start of the month.

To live in the country

Hello all!  Yes, I know, I still haven't got around to catching up with the lovely entries for the Summer Countryside theme I'm hosting at Art Journal Journey.  The week just seemed to slip away from me.  But I have just spent my Sunday morning creating another journal page full of countryside peace and calm to add to the entry list.

Nature's Paintings

Hello all.  I hope you are well and enjoying a peaceful weekend.  I'm here with another page for the Summer Countryside theme I'm hosting over at Art Journal Journey this month.  This time I've been imagining someone spending time wandering through meadows, finding somewhere peaceful to sit and read for the afternoon before heading home again... gathering wildflowers and grassy stems as they go, to take a little of the summer countryside home with them.

Soothing your senses

Hello all!  It's time for another contribution to the Summer Countryside theme I'm hosting at Art Journal Journey this month.  There are already so many fabulous entries that I'm just about keeping up with so far - thank you so much - and I'm looking forward to many more.  For today's page I'm soothing my senses with flowers and butterflies again.

Spending some time in the countryside

Hello all and happy 4th July, if that's something you're into!  I'm back with another page for the theme I'm hosting at Art Journal Journey this month - Summer Countryside.  It would be lovely if you came to spend some time in the country too... find all the details here at Art Journal Journey.

I'm working in a 7.5 x 7.5 inch journal, with pages glued together for extra strength, and today's page has some simple collaging over a countryside view painted very simply with inks and paints.

Summer Countryside at Art Journal Journey

Hello all!  I'm so happy to be back with you all, and very excited to share the reason for my return... I'm delighted to be the host this month at Art Journal Journey.  I'll be here throughout July to share some journalling pages on my chosen theme: Summer Countryside.

There are more details over at Art Journal Journey itself, and of course I have an inspiration page today to start you off.  I know I've been away for a long time, with only occasional appearances, but I'm looking forward to reconnecting with lots of you here in Craftyblogland this July, and I can't wait to see what you create in response to the theme.  Here's my first offering...
