Hello everyone, today I am sharing my February  LO for
 the Dusty Attic blog 
how utterly brilliant are these word chippies 
To me 
 represents me in my garden 
In my garden I am in touch with nature and my soul
 I feel connected with the beauty which surrounds me .
I seek it out , see the detail , the simplicity , I sense the power .
I sense what I cant see and I sense what I cant feel .
Nature truly lights up dark corners in my world .
Mother nature is pure magic.


 My trade mark - creating  layers of elements reminding me of mother nature.
if we look deeply we can see detail after detail .
I do find nature inspires me and helps me create my layouts .

 the chippies are treated with inks and paints .
I just keep layering until I am happy with the result .

Vintage Art Journal page

Hello my scrappin' sistas and a big welcome to my blog 
Here I am again sharing another of my art Journal pages 
and I have created this vintage page for my journal 
the older sepia photos just fascinate me 
and I wonder what the people in the photos are thinking 
 is just another way of keeping a diary
 Having fun with this one 
lots of rich colors and texture 
and of course layering and chippies .

photo sourced from Tumblr on Pinterest .

I have layered heaps of beautiful DUSTY ATTIC chippies 
under and around my vintage photo .
keeping a journal/diary is just wonderful to me 
I get to record my feelings and thoughts 
and keep them gathered in a book or my treasure box 
thanks so much for popping by 
I really love reading your words you leave me .
until next time happy scrapping x
