Daisy absolutely adores all animals and to see her face and to hear her literally squeal when she saw the baby animals at the farm made my heart sing. When I watch her I am seeing the world through new eyes again. My favourite farm animals are pigs and I was thrilled to see there were some Gloucester Old Spot piglets...squeal (from Nanna this time)
and lambs too.
There are plenty of play facilities even for toddlers and she went up and down the slide, and played on the swings endlessly.
I wanted to use my day out as inspiration for a some new art journal pages. I also wanted to enter some fun challenges. Scrap around the World have a great mood board to work with and PaperArtsy are working with stencils.
I also wanted to use this sweet photo of my darling Daisy in Jane's Journal...her joy and delight was palpable.
So down in my studio this is what I created. I found an old atlas and tore out the pages where Fisher's Farm is situated.
I love the way you can still see the map through the layers of paint and the way the lace has soaked up the paints.
and one final shot.
Scrap Around the World June challenge Below is the fab mood board we were asked to work with,
I was thrilled last month that the very first time I entered this worldwide challenge I was one of the honourable mentions with my darling buds of May Journal pages. This month the board suggested ice cream and happy summer days to me. I was inspired by the pastel colours and the lines...this is how I got doodling my border around my pages. There is lots of texture in the board too so I added the lace on my piece and the stencilled texture paste. The words happiness also make me thing of my family and the happy times we share. My Journal is made by Dylusions with 8x5" pages.
PaperArtsy stencils I love using stencils with my mixed media work.

I had great fun with these pages. It was a super girlie day out. We had a wonderful family day last Sunday and yes I will share some photos from that day soon. We were so lucky with the weather as it turned out so hot and sunny and yet that night the heaven's opened, which my garden liked. I have a rare crafty day at home tomorrow so I hope to get ahead with the projects I'm working on and also do a little gardening. I hope you are all enjoy the last full week of June and the first week of summer. Thanks for stopping by.
Bye for now,
