Our new theme at Try It On Tuesday is 'Nature' and I have a journal page to show you.
When I was teaching we often used to take the children on walks, either in the nearby park or further afield - one of our favourite places was Dovestone Reservoir - it was so peaceful and I used to encourage the children to stand and listen - I still do this with our grandchildren - often we see, but but miss so much by not listening!
The background was spritzed ink and and some stencilling. I added some random stamping and then I used some scraps from my scrap box - I have sooooo many scraps leftover from other projects and the only new thing I added here was some tissue tape and the stamped sentiment.
I am also linking this to Art Journal Journey where I have been hosting this month with the theme 'If You Go Down To The Woods'. The quote is from a Crafty Individuals tree set.
T Stands for Tuesday over at Bluebeard and Elizabeth's blog
This time I have a drink and food to show you …and a few photos…
When we went up to our caravan on Friday we decided to go via Morecambe and visit one of our favourite places to eat.
We like the Rotunda at the back of the hotel - it is cheaper than the main restaurant and less formal. I have taken you here before..
We ordered Fish and Chips..and Mushy peas!
You maybe can't read the paper it was on but they are quotes from the Morecambe and Wise show…this one got a bit greasy but the waiter seeing me trying to read them bought me a couple of clean ones(coming to a journal page some time soon!)Here are a couple of links to two of my favourite clips(my very favourite - Singing in the rain has been blocked by the BBC)
We also had our drinks, a latte for me and tea for hubby.
Afterwards we went out of the back door for a walk.

today there was a circus!
Morecambe has lots of art work related to birds and beaches.
Some of the architecture is interesting too - the bottom photo is of the Winter Gardens - a lot of famous stars appeared here! It is being restored but will take a long time.
The statue of Eric Morecambe - see the birds at the front?
You can see the mountains of Cumbria across the bay - there is a model to show what you are seeing
Warton Crag is the one we see from our caravan - several miles away
I hope you will join in - maybe with your drink related post at The Altered Booklover, a Journal page for AJJ or with anything Nature related at Try It On Tuesday where the challenge is open for the next two weeks - we are looking for all kinds of crafting as your entry, as long as it follows the theme!
Thanks for looking, I will be back with more photos from our weekend another day, Chris
