Bread and Journaling

Hello Folks!

I'm a day late to Elizabeth's Tea Day Party. A friend had an emergency, and I stepped in to help. But I'd already taken a photo of my oat bread loaf, fresh from the oven, and my cup of peppermint & liquorice tea.


Today, I created an art journal page for the final day of Erika's New Year/New Adventures challenge at Art Journal Journey.


Finger painting, printing with lids, lego and Fresco Finish Paint, book page scraps, a teabag, and Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs. Finished with some scribble journaling.



Wishing you a belated Happy T-Day!

  2. I hope your friend is ok 😁. Your bread looks delicious and I like the sound of the peppermint and liquorice tea too - yum! Your stamped teabag looks amazing on the background that you created with those fabulous layers of colours and texture. I love all those dots and circles too - perfect 😁. Wishing you a Happy belated T Day! J 😊 x

  3. Oh my gosh - what a delightful and clever page - You gave us so much inspiration Alison! Thank you very much for all your ideas and wonderful pages linked this month to Erika's "Adventures" collection!
    Gosh I hope it isn't too bad with your friend ♥♥♥
    Oh I have to search for a good oat bread recipe soon. This looks tempting , especially with this tea. A British blog friend sent a liquorice tea to me some time ago and it was fantastic but I can't find this flavour here in Austria, even liquorice to chew I just get in one German chemist's chain here in Austria - Haribo makes it and in no Austrian supermarket they sell the Haribo liquorice sweets - all other things from Haribo but no things liquorice - I wonder why....
    Happy rest of the week and all good wishes for your friend!

  7. I was thrilled to read that you had joined us for T this week. I'm hoping a few people will notice. That tea sounds wonderful, and I would love a slice of homemade bread right now. It looks so warm and inviting. Thank you beyond belief for sharing your tea and bread with us for T.

    To carry it even further, I loved how you used yet another one of those fabulous round teabags to create your fabulous art for Erika's theme. It is a perfect way to end the month at Art Journal Journey. Thanks for sharing your teabag art there, too!

  10. That bread and T looks soooo yummy. I would love a slice right now while I motivate myself to do some grading. And I love your final page link up to AJJ this month. I like how you picked the words limited edition, because that's what an adventure is, isn't it? A special moment or item you created. This page is great. And thank you Alison for all your posts. That have been inspiring. Hugs and happy belated T day. Erika
