I realised I had not written in my journal for a while and thought it was time to rectify that. So I added this quote. The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything .. 
I bought the new round Pin wheel stencil and thought It was about time I used it. It works really well and is quite fun to use.. Of course I had to doodle and use my pens to play on it.. I used a little Prima stamp (#960124) looks a bit like a typewriter keyboard.. Think it looks cute stamped here and there.. I also used my France Papillon design cube to add the tiny circles they are subtle but they add to the texture.. 
I will post this over at Paint Party Friday and have a pop around to see what everyone is up to..
Mix it Monthly for February is use fabric so I popped a little used paint covered baby wipe, that I tried to fold into a bow with a piece of dyed to match ribbon. As I was sewing thought it needed something sewed on there.. 

Have a great day 

Edit... Background is done with Dylusion sprays in vibrant turquoise and fresh lime.
