Busy Bank Holiday

What do you do on a Bank Holiday Monday? If I'm on my own I like to spend the time in my little studio in the garden hours can pass by and I don't notice I'm so wrapped up in paper, ink and paint I don't even feel the need for food! But not today alas, Ive been busy packing suitcases -I'm off to meet my new Twin Granddaughters born Dec 5 in New York! Such a lot to do before you go away, my dilemma now is how much crafty bits can I get into my luggage! Ive bought a small journal (Rymans I think) and I've been trying to get pages prepped with gesso and paint and ink sprays so I only have to take glue, collage pages ink pad and background stamps, pens and crayons.  Hopefully I will have some time in the evenings to journal - I hate to be separated from my stash.... get withdrawal symptoms , Hoping to manage a visit to 'The Ink Pad' in NY city and conveniently there is a 'Michaels' craft store just down the road from my sons home! I probably wont have time to journal I shall be so busy cuddling the Twins!

Back to work tomorrow hope everyone got to do some art today.

Here are a couple of pictures of one of my favourite journal pages......

The Chicken is from a supermarket magazine - she just spoke to me - I love chickens(would love to have chickens in the garden but my Westies are not feather friendly!)
her feet are from a download from Dyan AFTH, the crown ,heart & wings are a Tim Holtz die; Fragile stamp is from a Darkroom Door set, other stamp from Paper Artsy.  Background is a happy accident, not everything turns out the way I want it to!

I'm off to finish packing :>))

bye for now....

  1. I love your chicken page!
    Hope you had a great time in New York and managed lots of cuddles with the twins, and a trip the Ink Pad of course. My husband went to NY on business a while ago and I made sure I gave him a shopping list :-)
