Craft Barn Art Journal Challenge

Oh, go on then - let's throw caution to the wind and submit my next two pages to the Craft Barn Art Journal Challenge.
I think I'm improving, helped a lot by my new purchases of Dylusions stamps and spray inks which I bought at the summer Craft Barn Extravaganza. 
I made these pages during those long, long weeks of summer rain that never seemed to end but it took me so long to have time to complete that we were back in lovely summer weather by the time I finished!
I drew the frog's body, raindrops and lily pad can probably tell, LOL!

Let the Journal begin!

Okay, so I have begun to have a go at my first art journal, having bought a few blank books for the purpose last time I was in London.
This is the cover I made using the black of the cover as my background colour.
 Well, it IS my first attempt - LOL! A bit 'busy' !!! Never mind, we live and learn.
And I'm going to even, bravely, show you my first ever journal page I did way back in June - baby steps!!.....

Hurrah! Got to Stamp Club!!!

Last month I actually made it to Stamp Club and also managed to make the swap - which was the least I could do as it was my turn to host.
I chose a domino accordian book with the theme 'Past Times' and this is the one I made.....
 I had fun trying to make it look as though it had just been dug up from some ancient site, using, amongst other things, a Verdigris E.P.
