We spend some lovely moments with our darling granddaughter Daisy and I love to record these as mixed media "Moments" in my physical Jane's Journal.
On a recent visit we went to her nursery bar b q and on the way home we visited the swing park. Daisy's favourite activity is going down the slide and she can spend ages going up and down and up and down...squealing with delight as she does so.
After visiting the swing park Daisy helped me pick strawberries at her house and I shared this photo with you before but I thought I would use it to make my Moment.
I wanted some summery texture so I pushed grunge paste through the Flower Power stencil Tracy sent me from the new release. I also added some tissue and some butterfly edge die cuts.
I added some Gesso to tone down the print above.
Next I decided to wipe back the blue panels slightly and then stamp the Joy Old butterfly postcard stamp with
archival to give it a slightly worn look. (Sadly Tracy says this stamp is now discontinued). I also stamped a great Paperartsy sentiment and added some leaves
I then chose some pieces from the Flower Power Paper Art set.
I would like to enter my Moment into the following challenges;
Scrap across the world July mood board
I was inspired by the gorgeous vibrant colours of the board and also the step make me think of the lines in Daisy's dress. I also wanted to use a butterfly and flowers. My Moment measures 10 x 8"
Die cut Divas summer and patriotism I think my Moment epitomises an English summer day...strawberries....mmm

Thanks for visiting today. I have the day from work off after our family wedding in Bristol so I can relax, have a sort out and find some time for some crafting.
We enjoyed the weekend so much, my neice looked stunning and her and her now dear husband organised the most amazing day for us to all enjoy.
Bye for now,
