…Creating on the Hill…

Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them

..Life is Sweet..



a new journal page for my large journal and its crammed with cakes and pink!!


I started off with a coat of gesso to give the journal a good surface,this helps with painting but also gives the pages a protection.


next i covered page with a coat of dusty pink acrylic paint and brushed white acrylic over sequin waste.

i added blue acrylic using an alphabet stencil i picked up at the works for £1.99 ..great value(large and small alphabet, numbers and other designs)


then it was a paper doily added to a corner of the page


this cupcake stamp i stamped one on top of the other then penciled in the plates to make it look like a cake stand (thanks Amy for that great idea xx)


..a wallpaper sample provided the large cupcake and text and stamps created the start of the tea party


as you can see i just cany stop once i start! adding cupcakes and hearts and doodles..


..the birdcages and hearts add a vintage look


can you spot the shape of the month buttons from May?..a teapot and cup..couldn’t resist


Life is Sweet…too sweet at times if you are like me and love cakes and chocolate..

these are some of the supplies i used to make the journal page..hope it helps when wondering what to use ♥♥♥♥

  2. Love it!


  3. Hi Sandra – I was in The Crafts House when you painted that page and I didn’t even spot you taking photos!! It has turned out really nice – love the cake stand (love cakes!). I particularly like that you have a supplies list at the end of the post – Great idea and inspirational too – it’s made me think of what I would create if I had those supplies – I think I would colour the doilies, doodle on them and have a giant doodle of the day! Catch up with you soon. Karen x


  4. Hi Karen…i kept sneaking out to take another picture! I’m glad you like the supply list and i cant wait to see “giant doodle doilies”! We could have Doodle Doilie Days..now that’s a thought


  5. Lovely page – such temptation!
