Good morning you all. We had another cold and frosty night here, followed by a typical Autumn morning mist, but it's supposed to be getting warmer over the weekend - sure hope so.
Yesterday I decided to paint an autumn spread in my journal for PPF, hosted my Eva and Kristin. I started off my spraying the background with different colours, dried it, and then sat down and wanted to start drawing some leaves. But then, without thinking what I was doing, I doodled round some of the drips from spraying, and it made a face. One thing led to another, and before I knew what I was really doing, I had sketched a whole sea of faces in black ink. I then coloured them with water colour pencils, and painted over them with water. Not quite what I had planned, but I had great fun with it. Sometimes it's good just to let your feelings take over.
And then while I had my journal out, I decided to make a collage. I found a load of ready cut pictures and photos and paper scraps while clearing up the day before, and so I used some of them. After sticking them onto the pages, I painted over them with some diluted gesso, and then wiped some of it off again. After it had dried I added a second layer of pictures and paper scraps, and a photo of my Mum with my older brothers and sisters during the war. The quotes were also a discovery from clearing the table. Anyway, I very much enjoy making collages just now, so all in all, I had a fun afternoon.
Here's wishing you all a great day. Hope you have time to pop over and visit some of the other *Party Guests*. Take care, and thanks for visiting!
