Don't forget to have a look what Karen and Carolyn are doing in their Wreck This Journal, journals.

My First Tag

Hi Everyone, Wee Man here :-D Today I did my first tag for Tag Tuesday and I wanted to share it with you on here.

Granny made the squares for me with a black pen and I used my coloured pens to colour it.

Until next time thanks for popping by to say 'Hi'

Love from Wee Man :-D

Anti Journal

New Pages

I am thoroughly enjoying this book and am so very grateful to my friend Lynn for sending it to me in my 'hour of need'. 

The prompts on the pages I'm showing you today were, Colours I love ~ Colours I feel indifferent about ~ Colours I hate

Well I love all colours. Green is my favourite, but I do love all colours; so this is what I did.

I used my Inktense pencils and a black marker. 

Go here if you would like to see what MissyK did in her 'Wreck' journal this week and go here to see what Carolyn did in hers.

So until next time, take care and thanks for coming by; any comments you leave are very welcome, I appreciate them all very much {{hugs}} Mo :o) x

T Stands for.........

Tea on Tuesday

First of all, talk about being suplanted!! I was just saying to Denise at lunch time that I had a blog post to write and hopefully would get chance to start (this), it, whilst Wee Man was having his lunch. However, having eaten it far quicker than it took me to make it, he came through and said he wanted to do an urgent blog post and would I help him. 
Obviously I couldn't say no, so if you would like to see what was so urgent to tell you, please go here.

   Now, back to the reason for my own post; this week I am sharing my Chinese meal with my friends from Tea on Tuesday over on Elizabeth's blog, Altered Book Lover.
We try to meet every Tuesday with a drink related post, although the drink doesn't have to be tea and the photo doesn't have to have been taken on a Tuesday. 
See how flexible it is? Why not join us this week?

My photo was taken on Saturday past and if you didn't know, that was St. Valentines Day. My lovely hubby and I don't 'celebrate' Valentines Day per se, but we do like to do something a little different and this year it was having a takeaway meal from our favourite Chinese restaurant. Other years it has been finding a special gift for under a fiver, setting up breakfast in bed in such a way that we can both enjoy the treat and one year I put heart chocolates in his lunch box for him to find at work. 
Anyhoo, here is my meal. I had Kung Pao Chicken. It was very good indeed.

And my beverage of choice was a drop of something bubbly. 
Light beer and lemonade. Otherwise known as a shandy, hehe.

Craft wise over the past week I did some more work in my Anti Journal  
and will be sharing more photos tomorrow/Wednesday. 
I also took part in a one staple collage swap which I will share pictures of, once my partner has received it and I, hers. 

Well until next time, thanks for stopping by to say 'Hi'; please leave me a word or two, they brighten my day.

Take care, stay safe and be well ((hugs)) Mo :o) x

Long Weekend

Hi everyone, Wee Man here. I am on a long weekend from school and I have done lots of fun things. Would you like me to tell you about some of it?  Yes? Ok. 
Well one of my favourite things I have done is to dress up as Super Man, but of course, I am Super Wee Man! 

I flew about and rescued people in danger. I rescued granny who was stuck up a tower because she was fixing a roof and the ladder fell down. She thought she would be stuck up there for the rest of her life. Super Wee Man to the rescue!! Hooray!! :-D

Yesterday I went for a cycle over a new bridge at the river. I wore my red helmet.  The bridge is quite long because the old bridge is coupled up to it as well. I cycled back and forth on it. The river was flat and calm. 

Granny found how to draw a bike on the computer and I drew this with my crayola twistables all by myself. The green lines are the bridge railings and the sun was happy. I cycled for 2 hours but I wasn't tired at all. 

Do you like the 'Handmade by Wee Man' stamp? Granny ordered it for me. 

See you next time. By for now.
Wee Man :-D

Anti Journal

Repeat and Alter

These next pages in my Anti Journal took hours and hours to do.

First I did all the drawing with a Faber Castell pen

And then I did all the colouring with my Inktense pencils and a water brush

I haven't 'critiqued' it yet, and I may not. I'm thinking of just decorating that speech bubble into silence. We are all our own worst critics and I'm trying my hardest not to do that within this book. It is for fun, for  'wrecking', for not being finicky and fussy.

Thanks so much for visiting. I do hope you leave me a word or two; they mean so much to me. 

Keep a check on CarolynKaren & Lynn's blogs who all have 'Wreck this Journal' journals. I'm sure they would appreciate your visit  to check out what they have done in their journals too.  

Until next time take care and be well ~ TTFN

Some Art

Hi everyone, Wee Man here. :-D

I want to show you some pictures I have drawn but they aren't coloured in. And I want to show you my scrapbook. It is for me to glue in my collection of bus and train tickets. I don't know how many I have but I think there is about 500.

The first drawing is an X7 Coast Rider Bus going to Aberdeen. It has 6 wheels.

The second drawing is an East Coast train 

This is the front of my scrapbook. I wrote Book 1 because Granny says I will need another book to fit all my tickets in.

Here are the first two pages. I am doing one page of bus tickets and then one page of train tickets. I have done 6 pages so far. 
They are not in date order because that doesn't matter. 

Here are my tickets.
Do you collect anything?

Bye for now!
Wee Man :-D

T Stands for...........

......Tasty Tea Loaf

I am sharing my picture of a tasty fruit tea loaf and my afternoon blend with the Tea on Tuesday group over on Elizabeth's blog. Elizabeth has been out to lunch with her friend Sally this week, in the hopes that it will help her feel better after being laid low for what must be at least three weeks now. I do hope she's feeling much better after what looked like a most delicious lunch. I'm sure she would appreciate your visit and maybe you would like to hop around the other T participants blogs to see what they have been up to, too. Whatever you do, I appreciate your coming by here and if you leave a comment I will be most grateful as they always make me smile. 
So until next time, here is my picture.

Take care won't you, and be well ((hugs)) Mo :o) x

Anti Journal

New Pages

I've been playing in my Anti Journal book again, and this time I cut into it; but as per instructions mind you! Haha.

The page prompted me to cut around a circular area and turn it over so that it affects that page and the previous one. You may recognise the wee bit of paper weaving from this page.

Another wee prompt said to 'Be Daring' which I tried to be, but I'm very much a novice at this kind of thing. 
That's not to say I'm not happy with the finished result, because I am, I just feel it could have gone further, I just wasn't sure how, without spoiling it. 

I started off adding some Neocolor IIs in rough circular motions and swiped them outwards with a baby wipe. I've added some dots of colour with my fingers and some bits of washi tape. I've added some blue, red and green paint with my finger and finally added some neon colour dots with a highlighter pen.

 Here's a close-up

So that's it for now, and until next time, take care and thanks for coming by; any comments you leave are most welcome ((hugs)) Mo :o) x

Edited to add, Carolyn Saxby's excellent new Wreck this Journal spread can be seen here.

T Stands for Tiny Tea Set

Hi Everyone, Wee Man here :-D 
Granny showed me the tiny tea set that Elizabeth showed on Tea on Tuesday last week, and she said you would like to see mine this week. So here it is

When I play with my tea set I like to dress up like a chef. 

Granny said you can see what the other people are doing for T on Tuesday by clicking here.  
And she said Elizabeth isn't feeling well today, so I hope she gets better soon.

Bye for now!

Wee Man :-D

The Craft Barn

Calendar Challenge

Hi there everyone! *Waving*

The Craft Barn has posted the link tool for the second month of their calendar challenge. And of course the second month is February  ~ See the instructions here.

The two words we are to use on our calendar this month are Red and Hearts. 
If you visited me in the past few days you will know that I didn't realise there were also words to be used for my January page and I got a little ahead of myself in my preparations. Hence my seemingly being quick off the mark this month. *grin* 

However, for February, I am lucky to have accidentally got it right. Although, I think you may agree that with Valentines day being this month, it would have been a little bizarre to have been wrong, 

So without further twaddle, here is my February page.

Again I used my gelatos in shades of red, pink & orange. I sprayed them and moved them about a bit with my finger, then used a baby wipe to remove some colour through a heart stencil. I dried it with my heat tool and then speckled it with white Wink of Stella and added some silver Cosmic Shimmer spray.
I used an alphabet stencil and silver pen to add February to my page and stamped in white Versacolor,
Chocolate Men Coffee
Some things are better RICH

I added some washi tape above the dates and, like January, added the days in silver pen. C'est fini! 

Take care and thanks for coming by; any comments you leave are most welcome and much appreciated ((hugs)) Mo :o) x
