Saturday Step by Step at Frilly and Funkie


Hi everyone and welcome! Well, I've resisted taking the plunge for far too long, but my good friend Brenda Brown's 'Visual Journey' has finally got to me. Having 'rediscovered' an old academic diary I'd decorated for a 'Top Talent Spotlight' some time ago it seemed the perfect opportunity to get started. Not only did my first journal spread get completed, there's a full step by step over at Frilly and Funkie today!!!
Hope you can join me over there to get the blow by blow account.

This journal spread will be entered into these challenges relating to flowers, scenes and journalling;
Country View Challenges - 'Simply Scenic'
Our Creative Corner - 'April Showers Bring May Flowers'
The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - 'May Flowers'
The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog - 'Journalling your heART out'

Have a great weekend everyone and take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  25. Hey Jenny - I have to be honest and tell you that I am not much of one for birds coming out of people's heads or things floating in different ways or a mish mash 0f different shapes and sizes and colors. Sometimes you just can't teach an old dog new tricks.
    Your journal spread is absolutely gorgeous and I will have to see exactly how you managed this. You keep these journal pages coming now ya hear!!!!
