Another month drifts by like the falling leaves and I have not returned to my blog. I seem to be all written out from the day job - there is after all, only so much time a girl can spend with her fingers attached to a keyboard.

Evenings are better spent getting sticky and paint spattered or, with my head in a book or, as has been the case for much of the past couple of months, lying on the sofa watching TV. Still, given that I've barely watched a couple of hours a week for years, a little couch potato behaviour every now and again is really no bad thing.

One regular event that I would never miss is the Magical Journal Journey. As our books make their final stops on their globe-trotting endeavour each becomes heavier and loaded with colour, texture and so much talent! I am blown away by the artworks bulging out of every cover and always have to spend at least a couple of days building up the courage to attempt my own humble addition.

These pages are from Kim's Red, Pink & Orange tango of delight!

I have been somewhat obsessed with the lotus of late - if it's not poppies or Goddesses then it's a lotus - my imagination likes to be fixated at present and who am I to argue. I'm hoping for a change in the wind soon though...

At least this page appears to be flower free. The glossies pouted at me and demanded to be included!


  1. Lisa, these pages are full of vibrant fun color and loads of eye candy! I love your lotus flowers. You are right about the books getting fatter. It will be so much fun getting them all back and going off to a quiet place to soak in all the beautiful art work and love spread across the pages. xo Kim will love this!!

  2. Gorgeous. Love the Lotus too. Yours is a "Tango of delight" Whoopee. LOVE. way cool!

  3. Red rules!! least in your journal pages.

  4. I love all this layering and the colour :)

  5. Feathers, candy hearts and red lipstick! That is all Kim! A tango of delight, what a fabulous way to put it. Mia has been obsessed with the Lotus too...she has been thinking and re-thinking a tattoo. Beautiful, vibrant, happy pages Lisa. ♥ ♥ ♥

  6. Lisa, I don't what where my comments went yesterday with my ipad, but now back to my trusty laptop and I am leaping with Lotus Love and doing the happy Tango dance!
    Really, your pages are beautiful. I love all the layering, the textures, the colors are all so perfect and what you brought to life on my pages are spectacular! I love them from the very core of my heart! I would love to see all the finished books and I can't wait to see my very own! Maybe we could all do a final reveal post of our finished journals. Thank you for my beeeeuuutiful pages!!!!

    1. Sorry for the typo, that's what I get for "tango-ing" while I am typing!!

  7. Placing the girl with "the eye" in the center was a brilliant idea for the journal pages. She becomes the focal point and draws the eye from inward to out. Wonderful work! Colors are bright and bold. Wisps. Great!

  8. Oh what a glorious spread- I LOVE the way you incorporated it all and that LOTUS- inCREDible!!! I too have been behind on the blog front; another reason to be grateful for the journal journey!
    Amazing work as always, but I also love your flowers....;)

  9. Lisa I'm late to arrive but suitably impressed!! Your pages are yummy, I love what you've done with these colours. Your lotus flower is gorgeously light, dreamy and "Zen". I went through a lotus phase too, I find it fascinating how we are drawn to certain symbols ... Love the bright and vibrant collage pages too - very "Kim"! x


Thank you for your comments - I always love to hear what you think :)
