It's a.. Beautiful day...

 Hello everyone,  

I was blessed to have some free time this week 
so therapeutic to have a creative play day.. 

This journal background is made up of torn scraps, napkins 
and a spotty glassine bag painted, dotted and doodled 
all edged with machine stitch. 

The centre piece I'd intended to be a book mark but the painted blues 
of the stamped blue tit and coffee cup blended so well with the page.

All reminding me of the song Beautiful day by U2 
about finding joy in the small things in life. 

The focal bird brought to life the line 
*And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out*

Definitely a beautiful day.. Bird Song a cuppa and crafting.. 

Stay safe and creative Hugs Tracey xx

Crafty indulgence is always good especially when the results are such a gorgeous journal page, many thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations challenge this month.

The Birdie to my mind has a Spring feel to it - our theme at We Love Stamping!

What a happy page. I can tell you were excited to have some art time. It is amazing how therapeutic art is, isn't it? It always surprises me, even after all these years of making art. :) Your page is gorgeous. It feels like a lovely sunny day, and that bird is the perfect addition. It's raining here this morning so thanks for the little bit of sunshine on this dark morning. And happy rest of your weekend, and I hope you get a little more play time too. Thanks for linking up to Valerie's AJJ challenge and also to TIOT. Much appreciated. hugs-Erika
