After The Lunch by Jane

Hi all. I have started doing a journal of a collection of a few of my favourites.... verses, poems, quotes, sayings, passages from books that I like...etc. well, my absolute favourite piece of poetry is one by Wendy Cope, entitled 'After the Lunch',  the minute I read it I likened it to me and the relationship that I was in at the time!!.
 I used the fabulous window image from the ARCHITECTURE stamp set as it has a relevance to my memories of the guy.


I stamped out the whole of the poem inside the little book where the window theme flows the way through. If you are wondering how it goes......

On Waterloo Bridge where we said our goodbyes
The weather conditions bring tears to my eyes,
I wipe them away with a black woolly glove
And try not to notice Iv'e fallen in love.
On Waterloo bridge I am trying to think
This is nothing, you're high on the charm and the drink,
But the jukebox inside me is playing a song
That says something different, and when was it wrong.
On Waterloo Bridge with the wind in my hair
I am tempted to skip, you're a fool, I don't care,
The head does its best, but the heart is the boss,
I admit it before I am halfway across!!

Art journal page by Titbelsoeur

Hello everybody !
I made this AJ page last month during the lock-down, during a Debs Smith's facebook live, and it appeared that the sentiment from her collection was so meaningful. I had stamped it on a piece of masking tape. I have also found an old gel plate stamped butterfly in my leftovers. Then I stamped Floral open background here and there with various ink colours, and Peony on a bit of an envelope.



Hope it gives you inspiration to participate in our

As you can see here, and moreover viewing  Confinart Journal and Toutenkharton, that are 2 playlists from my Youtube channel where I show you how to make nice albums with leftovers, it is very easy to make nice pages and albums, making sense with nice sentiments... or not !

Your Journey by Jane

I read somewhere today that in these strange times we are all going through, that we are all in the same storm, but all on a different boat, our journey is different for each individual. I hope you are all staying safe and well.


for this months "journaling" challenge I have made a little book, using that paper leather material..forgot what it is called, but it is fabulous stuff, I just dampen it a bit, then scrunch it up, it gives the appearance of real leather. I then went on to stamp the SKELETON LEAVES, they are only faint here, but gorgeously gold in real life, then I stamped the DRAGONFLIES, and finally the JOURNALING WORD.

JANE

I have made this little journal to put all my memories and thoughts of the past six weeks of lockdown, and the coming months until we get back to some kind of normality. 


I have used:


Titbelsoeur

I have made this journal page to thank
the people who work outside risking their lives while we are locked-down. I have made the background with gel plate printings of the Artifacts - Thank you Text stamp, then I used The Splats & Swirl Mask. I finished the background using the Thank you stamp from Grungy Greetings #2 A6 that I enhanced with a white pen.
Then I drew the woman with the mask and wrote Thank You on it.

Hi everyone! Angie here with a page from my art journal for you.


For this page I created a masterboard using Amsterdam paints. I added some stencilling and stamping, then used the large flower stencil and black Sharpie pen to draw the flower. After that I painted the rest of the page with black acrylic paint.
I used the Artistic Stamper Tracy Scott Background 8 stamp, white embossing powder and a versamark ink pad on black card and cut out some of the circles, which you can see dotted around the page.
I also used a quote from the Quotes & Sayings 1 by Debs Smith stamp set for the quote at the bottom of the pages (this time with gold embossing powder).
Lastly I spent a happy few hours doodling on the page with a white Posca pen and then added some white splatter for good measure!
 Stay safe and keep crafting!
Hugs from Angie x



We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.
We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry. 
Have a Happy Creative Month

Stay safe

Flowers in the Night. by Jane

Hydrangeas are just the most beautiful flowers are they not!! especially the deep pink and the deep blue kind. I have no room in my garden for a hydrangea bush, so I  have a couple in pots, but alas they don't fare too well in them. We are still on with the "In the garden" challenge, so you still have time to enter this month.


To make the hydrangeas and the sentiment really pop on the dark background I embossed them with white embossing powder.

Hope you will join in the fun.
