WoywW #631

 Hello everyone

tis desk sharing day at the stamping ground but I confess 
there's been no creative play time for me this week 😞

Down times been filled with long nature trail walks
and a mission to rid my lawns of these mushrooms, 
better to be safe than sorry with wee Freya around.

 but a space lays in wait.. reserved for my next free play day. 
There's a LifeBook lesson by Laly Mille that I really want to try.. 
Hopefully accompanied by a fresh cuppa, I mislaid that one Monday 😏

WoywW #631

So I'll share a couple of pages from my latest Junk Journal. 
The Blue is a pocket full of unused ephemera and the pink from a 
taster activity creating hues and shades using limited acrylics. 

You'll find the Junk Journal HERE if you've time to take a peep.. 

That's a wrap from me this week. 
Stay safe & creative everyone.. 

Hugs Tracey xx

What an adorable dog. Those mushrooms were everywhere this spring when we had so much rain.

Your junk journal pages are creative. I like the pocket. A great way to corral your excess ephemera. I wish I'd had time to watch all those tasters. Time was not on my side last month. I like that lesson, though. Wish I'd seen it. Happy WOYWW from #2.

Freya is certainly too cute to take risks with Tracey. Hope you find some time for more creative play soon. Stay safe and happy WOYWW. Sarah #6

Helen said...

I love the junk journal, I've never made one, i just work in pre-made ones. Enjoy your upcoming play day! Helen #8

Neet said...

Freya is looking well stood there, thank goodness you are able to rid the grass of those mushrooms for her. Must be quite a worry.
Love the junk journal and the pocket - what a great idea.
Enjoy the rest of your week
Hugs, Neet 11 xx

Happy WOYWW. We get mushrooms growing in our fields, but they are safe to eat (although me and hubby don't like mushrooms, so they remain unpicked until birds get them). Loving the junk journal pages. Ali x #12

Good that you removed the mushrooms, some can really be harmful to pets. Love the peek into your junk journal, so interesting! Have a great day, take care, hugs to you and Freya! Valerie

Dawwww, Freya is rather gorgeous! I’d have de-fungussed the lawn too (don’t know if that’s a word but it ought to be!) Your junk journals are so clever, they look simple to do but I bet it’s a lot harder in practise. I liked the tones of the acrylics, bet that was fun, I’m impressed you didn’t end up with 40 shades of mud!

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Jan these sorts of junk journals are very VERY easy, just waste papers, scraps and paint splodges all tied at the waste.. sounds like me at the weekend haa haaaa!!
I like that word de-fungussed, lets aim to make it in the dictionary :))

Diana Taylor said...

Ooh what lovely ephemera - and what a gorgeous little junk journal, thank you for link, it is totally delightful. There is something very appealing about a pile of beautiful papers waiting to be used - I hope you find some 'play' time this week. We also have to clear the lawns of fungi, fallen leaves and such like as the Guinea pigs go out on the lawn most days - I like to think most animals are sensible enough not to eat what's bad for them, but I'd never take that risk.
Hope you have a good week,
Diana xx#17

Hi Tracy, the journal is gorgeous and the pile of unused ephemera is beautiful and I'm sure you will find a good use for it. The new stamp you asked about was a January release and I got it from Stampers Grove. Wishing you a very happy and creative woyww, Angela x18x

Tracey your journal cover is amazing. Freya is definitely more important so good job with the mushrooms. Happy WOYWW Angela #3

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Lovely to see Freya again - even if the mushrooms take centre stage! Look at her little face! Good idea to get rid of those mushrooms - you never know! Your junk journal is more junky than mine! I like the idea that you included the LB session in it and the uneven pages. Hope you have more time to play over the weekend! xx zsuzsa #22

Shoshi said...

Freya is so adorable, Tracey, and it's nice to see her again. Well done picking all those little mushrooms. I love your two pages - gorgeous colours and textures! A nice random look.

Happy WOYWW,

Cute doggie! Hope you can get rid of the mushrooms! I am so looking forward to the Laly Mille lesson but haven't had time to even watch it. Happy WOYWW! Elle #24, EOTC

Annie said...

I had a busy morning shortening 3 hems on a bridesmaid’s dress and then steaming it And since lunch I’ve been for my annual diabetic eye test (although it’s 18 months since my last thanks to Covid!) so I’m just catching up with a few blogs before the football starts.
What a gorgeous dog and your pages look lovely.

Hope you manage to get rid of those pesky mushrooms and it's so lovely to see Freya again. I've missed seeing her and she has really grown up and looks so adorable 😊. Enjoy your class and your junk journal looks fab! I hope you're having a lovely week! Hugs, Jo x

Lindart said...

Hi Tracey, no, you don't want those mushrooms around at all! Freya is so beautiful it would be terrible if something happened. Your junk journal is gorgeous, I love the butterfly cover, and that the pages are all different sizes! Great job! Have a great week, Lindart #28

Shoshi said...

Thank you for your visit, Tracey, and for all your good wishes and prayers for my operation on Friday. I'm so glad you liked the little ring I was given - it was such a touching gift! I'm gad you enjoyed seeing the transformation of my studio, too. Still quite a bit of reorganising to do but at least it's usable now, and for the first time in months, it is a pleasure to go in there now. I can't wait to get better and start playing with Cindy's machine and all my other new toys!!

Hope pretty Freya doesn't get into those little fungi. Better safe to pick them.
Beautiful junk journal pages. The pink one is fascinating!
Hope you have a wonderful week and thanks for popping by!

DVArtist said...

The mushrooms are probably Panaeolus foenisecii and NOT edible! So, yes get them up and out of the way. Freya is just beautiful. Again, your studio is so nice. Have a great evening.

Lynnecrafts said...

Freya is a lovely looking dog. I’d get rid of the mushrooms too if she might eat them.
I love the idea of an ephemera journal. Yours look beautiful
Have a good week, take care

Mary Anne said...

So very late this week!

Caro said...

What a cutie! Your craft space looks very inviting as well. Sorry I'm so late this week - it's chaos here as usual! Happy belated WOYWW. Take care and stay safe. With love & God Bless, Caro xxx (#15)

roffeycreations said...

Thanks for popping by to my workspace Tracey - You mention the tree die - I received it from Wish and it is way smaller then I though - but you are correct - the perfect size for tags. And yes better to be careful with those pop up mushrooms - a firnd lost her beloved dog to some last year - devastating! - Have a great week - Maurs xxx #21

Rain said...

Hi Tracey :)) I love seeing your workspace! Oh those mushrooms...yes, I've been doing the same, they just seem to pop up overnight. I wouldn't want any of my pups get get near them!

Mac Mable said...

Yes better to be safe than sorry with those mushrooms Tracey x. Glad you have been enjoyed your long nature walks and always good to get out in the fresh air x.

Susan Renshaw said...

I am afraid I am very late this week but hope to get around everyone...
We too have been picking mushrooms from the lawn - but too wary to try...
Love the junk journal pages - wish I had more time to try everything I would like to!!
Thanks for your visit!

Happy WOYWW!

Stacy Sheldon said...

ahh that must be nerve wracking if she goes for eating those mushrooms in the yard. We had to watch Izzy like a hawk over the stupid grapes the last couple of years I am so tempted to go cut them off the vines right now while they are small. ~Stacy #27

My name is Cindy said...

Well your workspace will be ready to go when you get some ime!! I think we all need headspace and beng with nature - whether working or walking - is a great way to get t! Happy Belated WOYWW, be back before you know it!! Cindy #23
