In my garden all welcome for AJJ and some quick faces

Last page for AJJ 'In my garden there is' where all are welcome...
Like loads of others, I've had so much fun playing with lovely Yvonnes theme this month and also learnt lots of ideas and tips to use in my own garden to encourage wildlife.
This digital piece made using a kit called 'Bloom' by G&T Designs.

Also last of this months   Kim Dellow 'Show your face' quick draw (optional)  I've been using an egg timer. (My 'quick' is a bit slow still as my hands aren't 100% yet)

As always, Thank you for stopping by..
I do appreciate it

In my garden there is Magic.... for AJJ

I've been really enjoying the 'In my Garden there is...' theme hosted by the lovely Yvonne over at AJJ this month.
I was browsing through my clipart collection and found the larger and smaller fairy images and wondered if Fairies have their own little gardens with even smaller Fairies in who have their own little gardens.... ?


Thanks for stopping by today

Bees just wanna have fun & 3 more quick doodle faces.

The theme at TIOT  is  'Make us smile' ... this is the first time I have joined in at TIOT so here is my attempt, hope its ok :)
It's a  digital piece - and although I had to digitaly dissect a few Bees to do this - (to make the Bee appear to be playing guitar) I promise that no Bees were harmed in the process of doing this.

Bees digitally drawn, additional elements form Serif digikits and MCS cd. Words thanks to Cyndi Lauper.

Also something for  Kim Dellow 'show your face' quick draw - another 3 quickies using the egg timer - I think they may be even worse than last time - my excuse? well it must be the current heat wave in UK frazzling my brain :)

Thanks for your comments

In my garden there is...... for AJJ

Another sunny and hot day in UK (well in my part) - making the most of it as the last few days may have been our summer for this year.
and in my garden there still is a noticeable lack of bees and insects again.. unless maybe they have found somewhere else to go and have more fun.... I do hope they come back :)
A digital piece and other than the 2 tiny realistic bees, the rest I made myself using Serif Craft Artist and Serif Draw Plus software.

Thanks for stopping by
Have a lovely day

quick draw and something for AJJ


Hows things with you? We are having a mini heat-wave here and supposedly today is going to be the hottest day of year so far. So I am going to find a shady spot and spend the afternoon where it hopefully will be cooler than being indoors.
But before I go.. I'm linking a couple of pieces...

At Kim Dellows 'Show your face' the optional theme for August is a  quick draw .... so I used my egg timer for a 3 minute draw with a black pigment pen. 

And at AJJ this month I have been having fun with Yvonnes  'In my garden there is....' theme. 

A digital piece incorporating a photo from a couple years ago of some veg we grew..  there's nothing like the taste of freshly picked  home-grown vegetables.

This was what our weather station readings were on Saturday - the girl changes clothes depending on the weather. She had her bikini on - but today, right now its warmer at 33.7c so I wonder why she is  wearing shorts and a short sleeve top - perhaps she got sun burnt on Saturday.

  Wherever you are
I hope your day goes well.

A right 'to do' for AJJ

Hello to you :)

Yvonne is hosting the lovely challenge over at AJJ this month and the theme is 'In my garden there is'.
I am not a good gardener but I do try usually to have a garden that is good for nature.. Sadly, at present 'in my garden there is' a need for re-planning and re-planting.  Trees have died and fencing replaced hedges leaving the once green garden very bare. Hopefully the end result will encourage more birds, butterflies and insects.

So my 'to list' (some of it!) is my take on the challenge with this digital piece.

Thanks for visiting
and any comments

In my garden there is

Hi - hope you've had a great weekend - they go quick don't they!
I've been sorting out my new Windows 10 pc so I haven't got that much done for a few days...  a big sigh of relief that all now is ok :)
so to relax, I made a digital piece which I'm linking to AJJ   where Yvonne aka Meggymay  is the wonderful host this month  and  the theme is something I really love .... 'In my garden there is'

My garden isn't particularly big but it always has a lot going on with birds and hedgehogs visiting and we try and have some plants to encourage the butterflies and bees etc.
It seems to have done nothing but rain lately so I'm really hoping it will be more summer-like soon.


I could spend all day watching the antics that go on,
but... why on earth choose a tiny ledge to balance on to sunbathe

All the Robins we have had visit over the years we have called 'Dobbie'.
They are such lovely friendly birds.
 Thanks so much for stopping by today
Have a great week
Gill xx
