The square window?

Corinne has chosen a  brilliant theme for this month at Art Journal Journey - 'Through My Window' and I can feel a few journal pages coming on!
My first is my imagined life as a mediaeval lady!
The page, as often, started as a mop up page! A little bit of stamping, stencilling and doodling and some scraps (along with a saved free magazine page from Austria)and a Tim Holtz Small talk phrase and I'm looking out of my window wondering what my future may be!
I am scheduling this post as we are going away for a long weekend!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Ooooh I was entertaining a medieval window view too.
LOVE what you've created here Chris!!!
I must get busy with some of the AJJ ideas in my head.
We will be spending two weeks by the sea on Ocracoke Island at the end of this month and I confess I am distracted and excited.
You and your travels are an inspiration.
