"WHY DIDN'T THEY TELL ME?" - Art Journal page

Helloooooo!!!!  I haven't been very crafty this week as I have a new nephew to fuss & cuddle :D  But I have been doing some more journalling lately!  I wasn't going to show this page as its all about 'that time of life' and one of the things you are never told about the menopause hahaha. But I liked how it turned out so here it is.....


The background is Distress Inks and the stampings & borders etc have all been coloured with Inktence watercolour pencils.

As for those pesky Night Dreads.....if you are 'that' certain age or even pass that you will know what I mean.  If you are a young chicken then don't worry about them....they are not serious but annoying hahahaha

Thanks for taking a looksee today, HUGS XXX

Karen brilliant pages and my that owl looks grumpy must be a Mrs Owl of a certain age too!

Love all colours used on the page and the border is fantastic. Is that a white pen or one of the watercolour pencils?

Wonderful colours and cute birdies, just the antidote required to the night dreads, well they help anyway!
I recognise the Rolypoly bird's delightful squeeze there.
Like the wavy lines for the words.
A new way for you to play artistically and it doesn't take up wall space - perfect then!
