Collage and Crochet

Hi Everyone! 

The weather has been kind the last couple of days, and I took advantage of the sunshine to photograph 20 or so shawls I've crocheted for my Etsy shop. So far I've added 5 more to my store.

And, this morning I took some time out to make another page for my Recycle and Collage challenge at Art Journal Journey. I used some gelli prints, a teabag, some Carabelle Studio stamps, and a bit of scribble journaling. It reads 'Don't try so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out.'

It's really thrilling to see so many people joining in with the challenge, thank you to everyone!

Have a happy Friday,
