Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, but not here where it’s raining a horrible drizzle and skies are definitely not blue. It’s so dark inside the house the lights have been on since 7am and the room that I now work in is very dark, I hope I don’t regret my decision to switch rooms now that I’m experiencing a change in season 🙁 Anyway, enough of me moaning about the weather, I have another art journal spread to share with you today. This page is inspired by the VINTAGE theme over on Art Journal Journey where this month’s lovely host is Wendy K.
Yesterday I spent too much time searching for lost things but during the search I found these two Wizard of Oz fabrics which were not lost but were forgotten about so I thought I would make a spread in my journal with them. At least they’re getting used for something even if it’s not sewing!
This is how they started out before I started extending the rainbows using my Pitt pens.
Poor Judy Garland, what an unhappy woman, but one of my mum’s favourites, as is this movie which is on TV every Christmas day without fail.
An oldie but a goodie!
Seeing all these red shoes in one place made me start singing a song by Elvis Costello called (The Angels wanna wear my) Red Shoes, so I wrote out the start of the first verse and added it to this tag made from an amazon box, and stuck it down on my page with a little fussy cut pair of red shoes. Page complete!
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients

This month I decided to join in with Effy Wild’s blog-along – 30 posts in 30 days same as we did in April this year. The idea is to blog every day if you can, but also to comment on other people’s blogs to keep the conversation going. There is a facebook group where you can link your posts and find other people’s to go visit and comment.
