Home Sweet Home

I've set myself a challenge to join in at Art  Journal Journey at least once each month and although I'm not very confident and think is this OK,  I'm  really enjoying the 'just playing' feeling.

The theme this month is Creature Comforts chosen by Linda, I  took my inspiration literally and when my friend came for a crafty night with this  hanging bat stamp, I couldn't wait to give him a cosy home.

Lots of distress inks, a brick stencil and lots of creepy spiders, perfect play time!

Thanks for calling in I do appreciate it.

You gave this lovely creature a wonderful home dear Avril! Fabulous image! It reminds me of my late greatuncle as he always safed strayed bats from being caught in the halls where we lived as I was little.
He taught me how wonderful and special they are!

Thank you for the memory and for this amazing page linked to Linda's October theme at Art Journal Journey! Wishing you a very happy weekend! Hope the hedgehogs are all right!

Hugs, Susi

This is wonderful, Avril - home is DEFINITELY a creature comfort and one I certainly treasure. You've done such a great job of making that home look warm and comfy, too, lol. Great work on the bricks - it looks so realistic.

Great work!

Although I’m still not well, I apologize for taking so long to visit, but I am just now making it out of bed.

You should definitely feel proud of your quirky journal page with all that autumn color and fun image. It was definitely worth me getting out of bed for. Thanks for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey,
