Her name was 'Elegance'

Today for my AJJ 'Elegance and Grunge' challenge page I had some fun and I first wrote a poem and then used that idea to create a digital page.
The background is from one of my scanned Gelli prints and then I added images from various clip art collections I have plus some digital elements from kits called...  'His story, Steampunk parlour (Daisytrail), Grunge en rouge (by me) and ‘Another time' (GT designs).
The font I used is called 'Candy Square BTN'.

Its a sunny day and the birds are singing. I love this time of year when the birds are busy nesting and singing more. Outside I can hear a Blackbird singing a lovely song, it is probably our resident Blackbird, this is him sitting in one of the Lilac tree,  he's a friendly chap and comes up close to us.
 And as well as admiring him in the tree, I love looking at the Lilac trunks as they have great grungy textures and lovely patterns on them.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you have a  great day

  1. Love your fun journal page with the poem, really well done! Great photos, too. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Aaawww what a sweet story, Gill, and a great illustration.
    Having a resident car mechanic will be very useful, and I'm sure he has a nice shower when he comes home to her elegant house. He is hard-working too and looks rather fine!
    Love that your blackbird comes near you, blackies are great birds, they are so caring of their young. Your blackie is looking good, that's a great photo.

  3. A wonderful ideas page with the poem, the wonderful creativity!
    The birds they chirp cheerfully that I also like and the trees the bark is interesting!
    Happy Day Elke
