More journalling

Having had a couple of weeks off, I had a chance to visit the treasure trove which is the Stamp Attic which seems to be getting bigger every time I visit it!  I couldn't resist buying a couple of the Graphic 45 Alice papers and being somewhat influenced by Mrs Roddis at the moment decided to complete a couple more journal pages in my book.  

I really recommend journalling - I don't feel pressurised by it.  It's like being back at school, cutting up, slapping on paint, stencilling and doodling.  Great fun.  (please click on image for a more detailed view)

Great pages Carol - you must have had fun making them. I love the way you have stamped the bees over the other images. A simple idea but so effective.
