Anti Journal Pages and Another Little Flutter

Hi there Everyone!

I hope this finds you all well. I am delighted to say that my migraines have stayed away for a few days now so I'm hoping that cluster has gone and may it be a long time before the next! 

Now this week I am sharing a fun double spread in my Anti Journal using the prompt 
'A Crowd of Faces'

I used a napkin, some faces from a sticker booklet, I cut faces from magazines, I used a magazine freebie to stamp some faces onto tissue paper, (that enabled me to reverse them too), and I stamped some faces from Rubber Dance stamp set Celestial Images also onto tissue paper.  I added some water colour to the stamped faces and I added watercolour to the remaining white spaces on the page.  
I enjoyed creating this and am indeed, still very much enjoying using this book. I've heard a whisper that there is a new one coming out after Summer, so I am excited to think that may be true, as I will definitely want to get it. 

I am looking forward to finding out what Carolyn, if her internet is behaving, and Karen have done in their Wreck It journals lately. If you want to see too, just click on their names and you will be transported to their wonderful blogs. 

In the meantime, for those of you following the Butterfly Project, here is the latest photograph, taken just yesterday of our four Painted Lady butterflies.  A 100% increase on the first batch. YiPpEe!

I will of course try to get some photographs when these beauties are released 'into the wild'. And then that will be the end of the project for this year, but Wee Man and I are definitely going to help with more next year.

We are going to be busy in June doing the Index Card A Day challenge, hosted by Tammy Garcia, which you can read all about over here,
And I will also be taking part in Kristin's Summer of Colour challenge which you can read all about over here
As well as keeping up with my regular things like T on Tuesday and Tag Tuesday and Wreck it On Wednesday with my Anti Journal, I am going to be juuust a little too occupied for more caterpillar rearing this Summer. 

Righto - I thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoyed it enough to leave a few words.

Wishing you good health and happiness
{{Hugs}} Mo :o)) xx


  1. So glad your headaches have gone away. Now hopefully they will STAY away! Love all the faces on your latest page. And I'm so glad that you and Wee Man will be playing along with ICAD again.

  2. Love your double page of faces, very well done, and glad you are still having fun. Congrats on increasing the butterfly population, that is great! Have a lovely day, and stay well, hugs, Valerie

  3. Lovely pages of faces.... I like that you included the sun. Could do with a little more of that around here :) Still, least it's not raining!

    Great success with your butterflies.... well done :)

    Hmmm read your last post and now I am wanting chocolate and don't have any :(

    Probably just as well;)

    Karen x

  4. Oh well done on getting rid of the migraines! Fingers crossed they stay away...

    Love your journal page, you got a lovely mix of faces in there.

    Huge congratulations on the Painted Ladies - that was a huge success this time, looking forward to seeing them being released now! Hugs, Anne xx

  5. Glad to read the migraines are now gone. That must be a genuine relief. You did a great job on those faces. You sure knew how to pack them on (grin).

    Loved that your butterflies are all healthy and twice as many as before.

    I will probably post my ICADs weekly, because there's probably no link for them. I know there wasn't last year, but there had been the first couple of years I joined in. I get spoiled with links because I'm only on Blogger, so it's hard to visit other venues, like Flickr, etc.

    I know you and Wee Man will have a busy summer. And of course, I can tell it will keep him busy, too!

  6. Migraines are awful Mo so I am glad to hear that they have passed over.
    Thats a great double spread and plenty of researching as well for material.
    Olivia has sent for her caterpillars and her and Jacob are looking forward to getting started. xxx

  7. Phew Mo… and Wee Man will be kept out of mischief over the summer. I look forward to seeing all the fun you both have with your challenges.

    Happy to hear you are feeling better. Hugs Helen x

  8. Ah i'm sorry to hear you've had migraines, they are the worst! Hope you are feeling better now though! I've never tried stamping on tissue, i'm not very good at stamping on paper so I imagine tissue to be even worse :-P I can't wait to see your butterflies too!

  9. I am so glad that your butterfly project has turned out so well Mo. I am also glad that you are still enjoying your anti journal. The prompts in your journal seem a lot less drastic than Carolyn's. Some of the things her precious journal has had to go through is very scary indeed. LOL!

  10. I do hope you are feeling very much better now and that you feel peaceful and calm so they don't come back again. The butterfly project was amazing and I loved following along. Your enthusiasm for the anti journal project is great and I love the face page. If you did a whole book of them you could call it a face book. I will drop you a private line at the weekend ... and hope you have a very good weekend with your talented wee man xxxx

  11. I spent the morning getting my index cards out ready to get stuck in again... so looking forward to seeing what both you and wee man make!!!

    1. Thanks Tracey - I am just so not nervous this year. Nor about Summer of Colour either. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens and to seeing what you do on index cards


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate every one of them ((hugs)) :-))
