New energy for a new week

Hi everybody. I have had a good rest for 2 days, had my back treated, and feel more human now. Thanks a lot for your kind comments and encouragement to rest; something which I do find rather difficult....

Yesterday I finished the journal pages I started on Friday, and I must say, I like them, which is not always the case. I painted the background with 2 shades of blue, yellow and green, and a touch of gold acrylic paint. A added some torn paper , did some background stamping with diamonds, script and music, and wiped it over with gesso to tone it down a bit. Then I put on the top layer, with faces, doodling and some text, and drew the leaves with ink, and coloured them with watercolour pencils and a gold edding.




So, here's wishing you all a good day, and a good start in the week. Take care, and thanks for dropping by!
