Another Journal page


Good Morning Ladies,

How are you all this sunny Wednesday Morning,  its going to be bright and bracing today (apparently). I long to hang the washing on the line! 
I tried something new yesterday,  I went on to amazon to order some dry shampoo, (I need to wash my hair every other day, but if nobody is here to help me I can't so like to have some dry shampoo on hand). Anyway the cheapest place to purchase was Morrisons on Amazon,  so I added a couple to my basket,  I shouted Paul to see what else we needed as if you spent £40 it was free delivery same day, so he went through shopping list, we were at £57, then I noticed that if you spent £60 you got £10 off !! 2 minutes later Sophie came down to tell me she needed some 'toiletries ', which put the basket over £60 so we got Free delivery 2 hours after I ordered and £10 free groceries, I all arrived in really sturdy brown paper bags!! I was very impressed, it also means we don't need to go out to shops!

Now today's Journal page started out as a simple idea but ended up taking me hours! The background was simple enough, I used a hexagon mask and Wilted Violet & Broken China DO, I then added white acrylic paint on my desk and took an old credit card and added white lines around the page,  then repeated with black.

I decided that I would add a kaleidoscope of Butterflies to this background,  I used a Pink Frog stamp set to stamp out the Butterflies,  I then sat and fussy cut them, before adding then to the page I die cut some hexagons and added some script stamp to them, I used them as a base for the Butterflies, adding some black cotton to some for texture. I went around all hexagons and sentiment strips with a watercolour pencil in a similar colour to the Wilted Violet, to give some shade. The word chips are from a Tim Holtz book. I added different adornments to the Butterflies to finish them off. 

I may go in and add more detail today, but by 10pm I had reached my limit.  I really enjoyed it though,  if only you could see my desk!! 😳🤣

Have a lovely day however you are spending it my lovelies, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                              xxxxxx 


  1. Morning Everyone
    Cannot wait to see your latest Journal page finished SANDRA.

    Well I managed to get through to the surgery on Monday and a Dr rang later in the morning. A new prescription was collected yesterday but it appears I might have a problem with it so another day talking on the phone today.

    The CAFE is OPEN for all who wish to pop in for look and a chat.HUGS ARE ON THEIR WAY TO YOU ALL.PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

  2. I love your journal page What else would you add? I don’t think it needs anything Sometimes less is more
    After my visit to the dentist yesterday my purse is very much lighter!!
    My laptop was returned yesterday and so spent a little time sorting that out I have lost some of my saved Serif projects and free fonts I had downloaded because it has a new hard drive but all is well in the laptop world!
    I need to finish a couple of birthday cards for children today and that’s all I intend to do I am shattered
    Take care everyone xxx

  3. Hi everyone
    Absolutely love your page, and in one of my favourite colour combos. It’s perfect 😍
    I might have to look into Amazon for shopping, I keep putting off having to go to Tesco! I buy odds and ends when I take the boys to work in the Co-op, but I need to do a full shop soon.
    A damp, grey day here and quite cold, I put the heating on as soon as I got in from work. After my lovely sunny walk yesterday with Barney, within about half hour of getting home, the fog had come down and didn’t really clear for the rest of the morning!
    Hope you’re all having a good day. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  4. Hi ladies.
    Yesterday's card was gorgeous with that pretty flower and leafs. Today's card is Beautiful in my colours to that I like a lot. Like the pen nibs you used for their backs.
    Hope your meds get sorted Janet, sometimes they do take time to sync with others one taking.
    I hoping Karen that your dentist visits are ending soon, so costly to have something done. I have the hygienist to go to back home and I do not looking forward to that either.
    Petty you still got the horrid fog around and makes everything so raw. Here we have +2 and it has been blue sky and sunshine all day but there is talk about snow tonight and tomorrow. We took a bus this morning to a nearby ski resort and took the cable car up the mountain. Stayed up there for around 3 hours before coming down and then we walked back with a small stop at a cafe for a coffee and we shared a very nice apple cake.😊
    I hope you are alright Lilian after helping R around. Be careful with your back.x
    Sue, hoping you feel better and the rest of the family are ok. Hugs for Pop when you see him next.
    Warm hugs to you all and have a nice evening xxx

  5. Hi, sorry forgot to comment yesterday, love your page, the colours go so well together, would make a lovely card also.
