Journalling again!

We seem to be having a busy time lately! Nothing awful thank goodness - just jobs needing doing and yesterday we had an invitation to the cinema with my son and grandchildren which we followed with a meal out too!
We went to see Ready Player One which I enjoyed more than I expected to!

I have found some time to make some pages for Art Journal Journey and Alison's Collage and Recycle theme!
I use a combination of Paper Artsy Infusions for the background and then added some bits and pieces, including part of a napkin, a scrap of designer paper, some bits cut from magazine and calendar pages that I seem to have been saving for quite a while. There's also a label from some garden lanterns we bought last year. I added some random stamping and piece of tissue tape.
I would also like to link to 

Frilly and Funkie - Bloomin Marvellous challenge

Off now for my eye screening so may have stinging eyes for a while!! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

I read the book Ready Player One but haven't seen the movie. I really liked the book and am always a bit skittish about adaptations. I hope your eye exam goes well.

What an amazing page! I love the images you chose and the way you collaged them together - beautiful 😁. I hope you are having a wonderful week and I hope your eye screening went well, it's never seems much fun with the blurry vision afterwards. Enjoy the rest of your week! J 😊 x

Chris, let me begin by saying this is so beautiful! I get such a wonderful sense of spring and finally feel carefree after a VERY stressful month! Thank you for this special, rare moment! I love that artwork can evoke such feelings!

And now, I am DELIGHTED you shared this at Frilly and Funkie! It seems that I'm getting more bang for my buck when I see it in the gallery and can say that! Hugs!
