Books, Cats, Tea


 It's Elle here from Empire of the Cat and I am so pleased to be hosting the September challenge.

This is my third time hosting so you probably know this already, but I live in Scotland. I am a cat person as you might have guessed from the name of my website! I have three lovely kitty companions who are a constant source of inspiration and one of them is quite obsessed with art and especially paintbrushes. She also loves to watch people making art on Youtube - she's definitely a frustrated kitty artist.


My theme for this month is Books, Cats and Tea.  I saw a meme once that read "I just want to read books, pet cats and drink tea."  That would describe my perfect day!  It inspired me to create an ATC at the time and I am hoping that it will inspire you to create lots of lovely journal pages for this month's theme.  

To introduce the theme, I have created a page that features all three items - a large kitty in the centre, surrounded by lots of books, teacups and teapots.  Feel free to use any of the elements from the theme separately or all together like I've done.  I think it gives lots of options for creating using book paper, tea bags, tea packaging, tea staining etc and of course the opportunity to put any kind of feline on the page is always a good idea.  If you don't want to use tea bags or book paper, you could journal about your favourite books or even your favourite teas.

So, I hope you find inspiration in this theme and I can't wait to see what you do with it!

Happy Journalling!
