Just playing!

I've been playing in my journals, but nothing much else! We had a lovely weekend away at our caravan - days out, nice lunches and time to play!
My attempt at an imaginary vase of flowers - maybe I should have looked at a real one!!

A little bit of zentangling, bit of a flower theme going on here, probably influenced by this

Our garden at the caravan(and the field of bluebells next door)I love Spring flowers and last weekend they were at their best, apart from the poor daffodils which are just about on their last legs stems

We also had a trip to Rydal Mount near Ambleside and got 2 for 1 entry, thanks to Gardeners World magazine, who have given away a card that is valid for a whole year to loads of gardens and houses. We got our money back on the magazine with just one visit and looking at the booklet that comes with the mag it's looking as though we are going to be out and about quite a bit!
No wonder Wordsworth wrote poetry!
I also did this on a background I made ages ago in my smallest Moleskine
I often just grab a handful of stamps before we go away and pop them in my Journal bag, just happened to be birds this time!

On the way home we called to see our grandchildren and my son.
My grand-daughter is into 'counting on' and using colours to write them down.
My grand-son, well, it's footy with Granpa!

Home again and it's been a combination of motorway driving, lunch out with friends, trying to sort stuff - yep!! still!!....and the best surprise of all, a lovely phone call from my sister-in-law. We don't talk nearly enough as she lives in France now and we had sort of fallen out of touch - will remedy that now!!

Thanks for looking, Chris

With such beautiful surroundings, it's no wonder your art work is so good!
