The adults involved with our YE group all had to make a 'doll' for yesterdays meeting. After lots of searching on the Internet and going through my books, and finding that all the patterns would take far too long for the girls to finish in a session . I needed to find something that was quick and suitable for a wide range of ages
In the end I decided to re-use a pattern that I have had several years, used a zingy green felt and embellished it with pastel coloured sequins so that she could represent Spring. Blanket stitched round washers and did theedges a'la Kemshall. Just need to find somewhere to hang her.

This weeks tag was inspired by Alice's Adventure in Wonderland. I re-sized both the text and the image. I stuck the text to a card tag and then coloured it with Brusho. The image I coloured with Inktense pencils and used water to make the water colour effect. Once it was cut out, I used sticky pads to apply it to the tag. I was given a lot of old broken watches by one of my son's friends and one just happened to be the right size for the rabbits hand. I also used a watch hand for the umbrella handle. The ric-rac, flower buttons and sticky gem stones came from my stash.

Last month, I didn't get to visit many journals in Kate Crane's 366 challenge, so, this month I have decided to view 10 on a daily basis, such lovely work being created, I don't want to miss it.

After applying gesso to the pages I then rubbed turquoise and green paint onto top. A darker green was then sponged through one of my stencils before applying the images of the Gruffalo and mouse cut out from a paper napkin. It is so lucky that I am a hoarder, because I had a footprint stamp that Kezzy had when she was a little girl, which I used to stamp over the letters. (It had come with a Barbie art set when she was about 6). Back to journalling on plain squares this month.
here to see the work of other journallers taking part in this challenge.
