I just wanted to nip in quickly to join in the Art Journal Journey Geometric shapes Challenge one last time before it ends. I'm not even going to show you a full page, but I'll show you a partial page I made. I'd been looking at Kim Dellow's floral stamps (Paperartsy) and wondering if I could have a quick go at doing something similar, so I drew these in my Kraft  journal, then doodled - the rest of the page is very personal, so I cut it out... 😉 I know the corners are rounded, but I'm sure that doesn't matter.

I've been doing a lot of 'messing about' but not really completing much, though I have quite a few things which are almost finished.

This image has been in my basket of cut out images for a while, so I thought I'd use her on this interesting looking little snippet, to which I added a bit more stamping before using, just using the stamps within reach. I think she looks quite enigmatic. I cut off the corners but really didn't want to punch a hole and add fibres to it... 

That's all I'm sharing for now... 

Thank you for visiting
I'll be back soon

That is a fantastic unfinished page Cath. You wouldn't have to do much to it to finish it off. The geometric flowers just pop of the craft background. I like this craft background you used. I need to get a craft journal for myself I think. Hope all is well. Hugs-Erika

Those flowers you drew are fantastic. I really like them and think you should do lots more and maybe dedicate a book to them - they look so good on the Kraft too. I was instantly drawn to the thumbnail on Bloglovin' and delighted when I saw it was your page but didn't realise they were hand drawn.
Lovely tag with the perfect figure against the background.
Hugs, Neet xx

The flowers page looks awesome Cath. I hope you create more of these, super colours as well.
Its a great tag as well and I think the words you added suited her image, I can imagine that lady saying something like that.

I'm playing catch-up, and am loving this journal entry. It is fabulous and I was so impressed with your paintings and doodles. So glad you shared it with us at Art Journal Journey.

Your tag is really vintage and lovely. I was really in awe of the various layers you used on it, too.
