Found it and finished it.

I started this page at the beginning of August, journalled on it on the 13th August then went to finish it the other day and I couldn't find it. Even after a huge clean up of my art room!
It's for the Blue Bazaar Art Journal Challenge.
Hennyway. Caitlin had an idea where it might be and indeed it was there!
So now it is finished.
Inspired by Teesha Moore and her piece.
Here's mine.

I used a technique for journalling that I first heard about from Dina Wakley and I hadn't tried it before - Stream of Consciousness. Here's a definition I found here - "Stream of consciousness is a style of writing that is uninterrupted, unedited, and unstructured. Typically, a journaler approaches the blank page without intention--then simply waits for something to come." I didn't have to wait long :). I wrote it upside down (actually, I wrote it the right way but it is upside down on the page - I'm not that stupid!!!) cos I decided that it wasn't something to be read but rather just something for me to write.

Healthy Life Awards

I didn't know that filling in this Weight Watchers thing would end up the way it did so here I am with a profile page that you can vote for.

"The winner of the Peoples Choice Award will be flown to Sydney for the awards night, complete with wardrobe, make up and lots of great prizes!" How fun would that be?!

So check out my Healthy Life Awards Profile and apply your vote - if you want to - and even join in the fun yourself! :)

I just had a quick escape from the demands of life the other day and whipped up this Clean-&-Simple-Cathy-Z-style layout.

Actually inspired by this do-over layout by Cathy Zielski.

There's not much information on the layout, but that's fine. You don't need much information. If you want to see how I did you can check it out here - my bib number was 6013, if that helps.

The Pick of the Bunch

I was going to do another collage of the flowers from around the garden but then I decided that, seeing as a lot of them are the same as last month, I would show you the pick of the bunch. No pun intended :)

I'm not a huge fan of yellow flowers but this one is just so pretty. Don't you think?

If my encyclopoeadic memory serves me right, it's an azalea.

Speaking of "no pun intended".... I like this cartoon.
