Journal page -- Scottish Brochs

With very little equipment I have managed with great difficulty a tip in journal page. I will attach it to my journal when I get home. I will also do a bit of stamping on it.
I have used a pamphlet of the pictish brochs of which there are 500 in Scotland I have put some information on my page. We went to see one of the most complete ones near Glenelg.
For the main background I used a scrap page that I had used to ink on. I adhered some pictures from some brochures on the Broch that was near us in Applecross .
When I arrived home I stuck the page in a journal after inking and stamping the background. I also added a pocket at the side to put more information in.

I am entering this in  :             Try it on Tuesday  -- Book pages, and

Dun Telve at Glenelg, one of the most complete one in Scotland.

Go Tag Thursday -- book print

On Go Tag Thursday this week the task was use book print. I have made a tag using the book pages as a background, and adhered an image. I then added some flowers with print on and a few stamped ephemera.

Tag Tuesday -- Shoes, hats and bags

Not my thing really, but I did enjoy doing this one. Luckily I had quite a few stamps that fitted the bill.
The usual distressing background with the large shoe stamped faintly in the background. The others were done on separate card and stuck on. I love the stamp in the bottom left and haven't used it for years.

This week it is a dolphin to try and get on an inch.
My sewn one I used my fine leather on a felted background. The stampbord one is shrink plastic on a painted background.

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week the theme is time, one of my favourite ones. I really enjoyed doing this page and used some stamps that I hadn't used for ages. I have also used one of my favourite time stencils. I am away on holiday in the Highlands so hope this schedules OK, as I find it impossible to do these from an iPad.
I am also linking this to Rhedd's Creative Spirit at

Tag Tuesday -- Feminine

 Last week was masculine and this week we follow on with Feminine. My tag was distress inked to start with and I then stamped the Crafty Individuals stamps in black. I stamped some lace in the background and added some flowers at the bottom.
I am in the Highlands of Scotland so just hope this posts OK.

Every Inchie Monday -- Fiord

Not an easy one to sew when you are in a fearful hurry and you can't get everything in the car ready to go to the Highlands with my youngest and family. Three grandchildren for 10 days will be a first. Did I hear some of you say and probably the last time as well. There isn't any sewing on this, it's a fabric collage. The stampbord one is painted and I am well pleased with that one.
