Having Fun!

While we were away with my Son and Grandchildren last week my Granddaughter requested that I show her how to make a journal page - this is is our joint effort for Gill's theme at Art Journal Journey, which is 'Nature's Wonders'

We both enjoy our woodland walks and can spend time looking at things we see there - Ok!, we have never met a bear in the woods - but you never know!!
When I take stamps up to our caravan I often stamp images and leave them for another time.
We had great fun using parts of stamps and Twistable crayons along with whatever stamps and stamped images we had!
Just in case there is some doubt about whose is whose (and I wouldn't be surprised if you had difficulty)….
Em made her own choices about what to use - I added the purple on mine to link them together!

That's it for now as we are off…again..but only for a short while!

Thank You for your patience in waiting for me to catch up with my blog visits!

Oops! Back again - I would also like to Link to Moo Mania and More where the new theme is Nature's Beauty

As Em is 10 years old (last Friday) she would like me to link to Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kids Challenge

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

I was on AJJ and saw the update. Your entry is NOT updating on my blog.

When does the student surpass the teacher? You are a tremendous teacher because your granddaughter just made a fantabulous entry. Way to go, teach!

Beautiful - and how very special to be able to art journal with your granddaughter. Such a keepsake. I like the lightness in colors to - my attempt for AJA was darker than I really like but hey - it was a first attempt!!
Congratulations! I hope you and Em will do more together.
