In The Garden and Parakeets

Good morning, I'm sharing a journal page with you today, I'm entering it in the latest challenge at Moo Mania and More - In The Garden, I'm also sharing some photos of the parakeets that visit my garden regularly

I started by painting gesso over the page and then I stamped the image [After Midnight] to position him, I then stencilled modelling past around the image.

I coloured the page with distress paints, and stamped and embossed the image

Finally I added some die cut leaves and flowers and added the quote.

For my birthday a couple of months ago I got a new camera with a decent zoom on it. I use to take photos of birds and they'd just be a little speck on the photo, now I can get up close.

This parakeet is enjoying an apple in my neighbours apple tree.

These parakeets are enjoying the coconuts that are hanging on my patio. I took these photos through my kitchen window, I was very pleased how they turned out as my windows need a clean.

Thank you for visiting, have a lovely day.


  1. What an AMAZING card project Hazel! AWESOME! Love it and love the photos of this parakeets! Thank you for sharing both with us at Moo Mania & More Challenges!

  2. Fabulous project. If I remember rightly, when I was in the KCUK group, he was much talked about LOL. The texture you created brings such depth, as though he is really standing in a garden.
    Parakeets, how amazing. Wonderful photographs. I imagine it would be too cold up here for them!

  3. Great card Hazel, and I love the parakeets. One of the joys of living down South.
