Feeling Rather Guilty!

Last month I decided that I fancied keeping an "Art Journal"
I'm not entirely sure where the idea came from and I had no idea how to go about starting one so I googled. Anyway,you know what it's like, you get taken on a journey,finding ideas you like, and some you don't and before you know it you've lost a few hours but have a head full of inspiration.
One of the blogs I stumbled upon was
Julie Kirk's
I lost hours, picking up ideas and read of that she was starting a series "A Month Of Sunrays" spreading cheeriness and Virtual Sunshine!
To cut a long story short I won some rather scrummy candy! sponsored by "The Ribbon Girl"

Oh my goodness,this little packet was packed full of scrumminess! How lucky was I !
Check out Julie's blog,it's cram packed with inspiration!

I promised Julie I would blog a "Virtual Thank you" 
I'm sorry it's taken so long!

The Sunshine is what was left from here and I used some of the ribbon,lace,a button, string and the dewdrops that were in my candy, Thank you so much Julie, I promise to show you a page of my journal when I gain some confidence!

With a table full of Sunshine treats I was in the mood to colour some sunny blooms and settled on
"Sunflower Delights Digi" I used a strip of yellow polka dot papers and stamped the top of my card blank randomly using a Lavinia Stamp before cutting around the vase and placing the image as if on a table cloth.

 I'm entering the following challenges:-
Crafty Catz 126, Use a digi,
Inspire Me Fridays 52, Anything goes,
Jellypark, What's the weather,
Lily Pad, Flowers,

Hello Julie :) Thank you for your comment today on my blog - you asked if the glimmer mist I used was Fab blue, actually it is called "jazz blue" :)

I love your cards and tags - Julie had a great idea with that Ray of Sunshine - especially in the glum part of the year ;)

Linda R said...

Hello my sweet friend. I just love what you have created here. So bright and happy.. Can't wait to see what you create in your Art journal. I am sure it will be amazing!!


Kerry said...

Oh should have had a sunglasses alert for this post!!! I love all the yellows...they are so bright and cheery. What a fabulicious prize...will have to check out Julie's blog. The tag is the bunting and yes I think the inky stitching really finishes it off (note to self!)Both the tag and card will definitely cheer anyone up. Love how you cut out Sunflower Delight and that gingham bow is great against the spotty paper. xx
