Mix It Monthly

Oh what fun I had with this challenge over at Mix It Monthly this month I really enjoyed getting started in a new journal (which I can't find anywhere, I do wish people wouldn't move my things) Any way lovely new journal (A gift from a friend). I will also join in with Paint Party Friday - PPF I loving playing around with paint and as it is Friday why not!

Isn't it pretty? It's A5 or there about's, it's all lined paper but that doesn't matter to me when playing in any journal. it also has a lovely little magnet fold over and I just thought this will become a problem actually mmmm. Any way I thing it's beautiful even though it has a oriental feel (which I am not keen on) Full of blossom.

I printed off the things from Conny's Challenge page. Flowers & pendant. I thought it was really clever what she did with the pendant, I am SO NOT computer savy when it comes to things like that.

I painted the background randomly with the colour pallet we was asked to use Then cut some parts of the flowers & pendant out and stuck them randomly around the pages and then I started to add things :)

Some doodling and journaling and then not much later.......

The finished spread I hoped you liked this look through my process for this challenge. It was fun. Thank you Conny For another lovely challenge Dxx

Journal Journey's Ch 22

Hello Everyone, I must apologise for being so late but it is STILL the 1st of August. (just) Wasn't July HOT!  lets hope it continues. Summer is truly here now as the children break up from school & university and we have our family home. I've hardly had time to breath with all the fun things we have been up to. I hope you are having fun wherever you are and managing to enjoy the weather.

This month's challenge is.....

Here is what Summer means to me. Children, fun and laughter. No matter what we're doing, cinema if it's raining, day trips out if it's warm.  What does it mean to you? Camping, dog walks, Alton Towers, Royal babies. What ever it is I hope you find time to share with us. Dawn xx
