WW1 LO for November

The November challenge at White With 1 is White + Green + Chevrons

This is so up my street!  I love green and I've been wanting to use this ribbon chevron idea for a while now.  I had tied a bow and (because I'm a perfectionist) I trimmed the tail to the same length as the other tail and this produced a chevron.  Magic. 

I started with the photo of my Billy girl.  I added some buttons from my green button box.  A few snippets of green and white card and tissue.  A tag.  And spread the chevrons around the page.  I didn't want to journal.  I know I need to learn to but not this time.  So I just added a simple foam sticker title - Billy.

I'm really pleased with how the chevrons turned out.  What do you think?  And does the page need journalling?

Thanks for stopping by


Someone likes ths page so much she is sitting singing to it!!!


  1. Fabby LO. Love Bill, she looks just like my last budgie Freddy:)

    1. :) Everyone should have a budgie at least once in their lifetime, they are such characters x

  2. Beautiful layout - I love all that white space, the green/white colour combination is so clean and fresh and suits the photo of your lovely budgie perfectly. The ribbon chevrons are such a clever idea. I think you were right not to add any journaling and just leave the page clean and simple. Elizabeth xx

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
