Journal double page

Who doesn't? ;0) I love cake in all forms yummy. I had saved some photos from a magazine and decided to go for it yesterday and this is what I came up with. I am really getting into the journaling, although I know I am a long way from being good at it. Saying that I like what I have created and that's what's important isn't it. I really love the colours and I wanted to create a back ground that would be light and co-ordinate with the photos. So I got some distress ink (DI) and added a couple of squirts to a 2fls oz bottle and then topped up with water, then I got some Tattered Angles GM in bubble gum oh I love this colour. and there was the back ground.

A bit of doodling and a wee bit of journaling and that was finished and I really am happy with it. (not happy with the tea pot and cup & saucer but I can't really do anything about that) I'm loving my cake stand ha ha, and cup cakes, we was in Harrogate a couple of weeks ago and we couldn't afford the Tea room at Betty's think hubby draws the line at £45 for high tea for two lol any way I made my own high tea of sorts. I hope you like my journaling efforts I hope you have a lovely day, looks like our Spring is on the turn but I really have enjoyed the last two weeks of warmth and buds on the trees blossoms blooming every where, God really does bless us so very much I really love the reminder of creation when all comes alive again in Spring. Love Dawn xx
