And here a first dabble into magazine transfers using a Gelli Plate.
It came out fairly faint so I'll have to try again with other materials.

Enjoy the day!

Two Birds Art Journal Trio

Hello Monday!
I had a fun weekend, on Saturday I finally managed to get my bicycle fixed and road worthy once more.  Then on Sunday it was Scrapbook day, oh YAH! Spent the day hanging out with some awesome creative ladies. Never get much done but hey it's all about the visiting and food, isn't it?

I managed to complete a few Art Journal pages so this is my share for today. 

The half moon shapes were stamped with a piece of wood I found
in our kindling pile. I love using found objects!
Entering this one in to Joggle Art Journal Week#16 Prompt-Six

Thanks for the visit!

Two Bird Art Journal - It's a mellow yellow kinda day!

Hello, as I mentioned in my last post I've started an Art Journal. I also joined up with a new
online group Art Place Group.
Combine the two with the prompt word yellow and a free morning and this is the results. First I hauled together every item in my art supplies that is yellow. Then after writing yellow I started laying on the colour with the goal of using as many different mediums available.
On a rainy day make your own sunshine!
Hello Yellow!

Inspired by  Elaine who's been posting beautiful beach photo's.

A bit about the journal. Several years ago my wonderful friend Holly gave me this beautiful little book full of blank pages. I had been reluctant to use it in case I dirty up the lovely covers she stitched.

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring has Sprung and A Trio of Cards

The sun is out and its warming up beautifully outside. The daffodils, irises and snow drops are popping up all over the yard. All but a few of the geese and ducks have now left the lake to head north to their summer homes.  Spring has definitely sprung here at the lake!

Yesterday I enjoyed a day of scrapbooking and card making. It is so nice to spend the day with like minded crafty people. I even managed to get a 2 page spread done along with the cards and started on an Art Journal but that's for another day.
Distress inks and stencil on whisper white card stock.
The sentiment is one of  Suzanne Cannon's new Quietfire Design stamps.
It's been entered into Love Handmade Cards... April Challenge
Stamped the bird direct to designer paper then used a
marker to extend the branch to the edge of card.
Added a bit of colour with markers.
Stamps from Stampin Up!
Coloured stamped tulip image with markers.  The robins are

This card is on it's way to Croatia as part of the April Card Chain Challenge.
I have also entered this into the Die Cut Divas April challenge.
And a photo of Taag and Jada after they decided that the chair is big enough for the two of them. They had been fighting over it all winter. Peace at last! :)

Thanks for the visit!

Spring happenings at the Lake

This week the Canada geese continue their stop over as they wait for the weather further North to warm and for the lakes to thaw. Otter lake turned to a giant slurpee over the course of last week. Then on the weekend with the help of some fairly stiff winds heading up and down the valley the ice was rounded up and pushed on down the creek.

The kids were up for the week before Easter so on Good Friday we had an early Easter egg hunt as they had to head home on Saturday. Here they are looking for chocolate Easter eggs. The Easter rabbit was very energetic and super sneaky hiding the chocolate eggs in the trees.
Push higher!
No chocolate eggs here.

Our beautiful family!

Until next time, keep it crafty!

Mini Image Transfer

Hello and welcome, I'm having a lot of fun mono printing with my gel plate these days. One of the things I enjoy is the unpredictability...
