CREATIVE WEEKEND

Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all had an enjoyable weekend. With it being a bank holiday weekend, Sarah and I had even more time to be creative. It’s been quite a relaxing weekend so far.

It’s day 40 of messing around with art supplies. So, let’s reveal my new art journal pages. Here are two pages I added to my art journal for the weekend …..

The only way is up

The only way is Up … well as you can see I kept this one pretty simple.

Creativity Takes Courage

Today’s effort includes a little more layering. I cut out some words from an old Mollie Makes magazine and pasted them down followed by some stencilling, a bit of pen doodling and some watercolour pencil messing around. All good clean fun.

I went on to prep a few more two-page spreads …..

When I look at the pages at this stage, I think to myself what a mess but I know once I start adding extras it will look alright. After all beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

While I didn’t get a chance to take of photo of my hexagon progress yet, rest assured that all the hexagons have been joined together and the plain border has been tacked in place around the outer edges. I am in the process of doing the fine hand stitching which will secure the plain border in place. I have secured two sides and hope to finish the job this evening. If the light is reasonably good tomorrow, I will take photos so you can see what it looks like now. I have been saving up to purchase the backing fabric but at the moment none of the local quilt supply shops are open. Finishing up the quilt will have to wait a little while longer.

For those of you who live in North America and/or any country that celebrates Mother’s Day today, I wish you a very happy Mother’s Day. I phoned my mother in Montreal this afternoon to have a chat with her and apparently the weather has been rather wintry. I must admit that here in the northeast of England the weather has been cold and blustery. The sun finally came out this afternoon but it’s cold. Brrrrr

So, my friends, I guess that’s my news for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.

  1. I’m enjoying your journal pages & wish I’d made the effort to join in. Looking forward to seeing the hexi quilt. Cold, miserable & weird Mother’s Day here too, with restrictions eased in some states, but not ours. Enjoy the week ahead, take care, stay safe & hugs.

    1. Hi Susan, restrictions are changing here too but not really sure how it will affect us yet. I hope we’ll be able to keep ourselves safe from the invisible enemy. Happy mothers day Susan and thanks for popping in today xx

  2. A day late to reply but wishing you a wonderful week. Happy Mother’s Day. Your journal pages are so interesting. I love seeing what “shapes” you will incorporate into the backgrounds and spy the hexies on the creativity page.
