Happiness blooms from within

This month's challenge at Country View Crafts Challenges is Flower Power and for my second piece I made a page in my journal. For a little more information, do pop over to the blog. Thank you.

Creative Dyary - April

I have been remiss in not sharing my weekly pages in my Creative Dyary - perhaps aiming to share them monthly may be a little more achievable that weekly! So this is April:
Week commencing 3 April
This was one of the preprinted pages which meant I got to spend the week colouring it in whilst fitting in acting as the children's chauffeur!
Week commencing 10 April
Got to have an April Shower's inspired page...! I bought the raindrop stencil especially fro the show at Ally Pally! How did I not have one in my stash?!
Week commencing 17 April
My birthday week so a birthday inspired page! 
Week commencing 24 April
Love this chap standing next to the huge flower - I can't decide if he's sheltering, waiting for someone or hoping he'll grow as big as it one day!

Flower Power

Happy May Day! The Country View Crafts Challenge for May is Flower Power. This wall hanging combines the rust challenge of last month with the flowers of this month to create a bird cage. It been ages since I last did any die cutting and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed sending a piece of card though my machine only to see it turn into leaves or flowers at the other end!
The cage is a wooden blank that I 'rusted' with paint (just as I described here). I die cut the flowers, leaves and bird and added Ideaology that I altered with paint and alcohol inks. It looks fabulous on the wall in my studio!
I hope you will join in with us this month - you might win a fab prize!
