This month has absolutely flown, I don't know where time has gone but I wont be sorry to see the back of June it's been nothing but rain, rain and more rain. We have 2 months left of Summer so lets hope we get some. Here is my page for the Art Calendar challenge set by the lovely and VERY talented Kate Crane. My page is complete all filled in but difficult to read because of the shiny paper I used for the journal squares. Now I need to get on and finish the page for July as it is nowhere near ready.

Another journal page in my A5 Pink Pig Mop-Up book as promised. The paints are all Dylusions which we can no longer get but I have quite a stock of them. The background stamps and flowers are Dylusions, the number stamp is from Dina Wakley's new stamps, the quote and image are Stampotique. All of these can be bought here. I really enjoyed doing these two pages and can't wait to do another one.

When I go to AFTH Dyan always has a "show and tell" quite often I have nothing to show possibly because I don't have the imagination to do a page in my journal plus it is so scary doing a page in the proper journal but today I picked up my "Mop Up Book" and it totally flowed. I think this is a psychological thing, because it is a mop up book it didn't matter and I just threw myself into it and you know what I really like this page and not only that but I did another one which I will show another day. I used Dylusion stamps, stencils and quote, the "Grunge Flowers" at the bottom of the page are from Dina Wakley's new collection. The figure is also one of Dina's.

Hi I hope everyone has had a good Jubilee weekend inspite of the weather. Up here in the north of England it hasn't been too bad, it poured with rain continually on Saturday but since then we haven't seen rain but it is a bit chilly for June. Yesterday I went for lunch chez my friend Ann (Flutterby Crafter)and a very nice lunch it was too, I spent a lovely day with Ann and her husband my, DH is in Spain so has missed all of the celebrations. I took Ann this ATC which I made to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, the two of us do a monthly swap this month it was good to have a theme.

This is a quick one as I am off to the "Ladies Who Lunch Play Day". Here's my Art Calendar page for June the Jubilee Month. I thought it appropriate to do the background with the Union Jack which I drew and then coloured with Tim's new Distress Markers. My journal squares are cut from some glittery wedding paper which I thought suited the occasion and the stamping is from IndigoBlu.
