Hi you all! Greetings from SUNNY Rhineland, it's almost warm today, so lovely! BUT - we have Arctic winds waiting to swoop down to us at the weekend, so I'm trying to enjoy it as long as I can!
This journal page sort of evolved. I started by painting with gesso and some thinned down acrylics, and then sprayed with home made inks in blue, purple and green and let drip. This was followed by some doodle dripping or drip doodling whilst watching TV last night. Somehow it all reminded me of something not yet formed, so I hit on the idea of creation. I drew a semicircle with pencil - using a tray as template - and wrote the Hebrew words for 'At the beginning God created the heavens and the earth' ( B'reshit bara Elohim et hashamayim ve et ha'aretz) I had a space at the end, so I added two words - 'Baruch Huh' - May he be blessed. I filled the space underneath with stars, swirls, sun, moon and planets, using some home made stencils, and added numerals with a CWS stencil. I added more Hebrew letters and numerals from a sheet of stickers, to represent all the words and numbers not yet formulated. I found the little blue flowers in my stash, and used some of them. Then I added the animals and fish, all in peaceful harmony with each other. I added some random stamping, dusted off with some perfect pearls, in the corners. I had great fun making this one - no plans, just letting it happen!
I am linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the theme this week is 'numbers',
and Dawn's Journal Journeys 'animals'
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
