Journalling page from last year for Unstampabelles

 Hi peeps, I have cheated a bit and used a spread I made from last year in my journal for the challenge now. I will try and do a new page for the journal before this challenge finishes....

Over at Unstampabelles, the challenge is to 

 Challenge#109  Lockdown 

TWIST: Scrap It! 

I have not scrapped it in one sense but in another I have as I have used scraps of paper in my collage to create the bird and the leaves. It started by me painting and smearing onto a sheet of paper and then adding dots and stuff. When it was dry I cut it into scraps and leaf shapes and used these to add to the journal pages. 

I journalled around the edges
More dots of colour and shading were added over the top of these

Some shapes are scraps and some are leaf shaped

More foliage hiding the figure watching in the shadows....

she looks pretty unhappy - it is not a self portrait but she could be some of me.....

Sort of Picasso....

Bingo watching while I was photographing to make sure I don't run away.....

You can have a go at expressing the feelings you have (had) during lockdown too.....

Unstampabelles March Challenge: #109 Lockdown!

 Hello Peeps, the new challenge over at Unstampabelles is all about what you did in 2020! The theme is

#109 Lockdown

with a TWIST of Scrap It!

I did a quick scrap page of a typical day in our lockdown in March 2020

We were only locked down for a few weeks at the beginning......

but I had several more weeks than everyone else because I broke my fibula at the beginning of the year too and spent time on the couch

We have a big yard and it runs down to a public footpath along the river's edge so by April going for a walk was essential for me for several reasons. I always had a companion to the water's edge and he was waiting for me to return each time.

This was pre Bingo of course.....

Why not show us how you spent some of this time in a scrap page OR can journal or make a card with scraps!

You have a month from now to create!
