Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
Here the day started off cool and misty again, and sunshine, clouds, wind and showers chased each other all day. But in between there were enough dry phases to enjoy some walks in the fresh air.
Recntly I woke up and had the song 'Purple Rain' going round in my head, which is why it has worked itself into my journal pages. I can't remember what I was dreaming about, and I always wonder how and why such things sneak themselves into our subconscious during the night.
The pages were painted with some left over silver metallic some time back, and I went over it with some blues and purples, and let the silver shine through a bit here and there. I stamped the background with various BG stamps while it was wet, which gives some nice texture and patterns. The diamonds and peacock feather were stenciled with clear embossing ink and white embossed, as were Ryn's lovely bubbles. I used gel-pens to add more colour to the bubbles. The lady in the hat is a picture from a magazine, which I digitally altered and coloured with gel-pens and oil pastels. She looks like she's dreaming of purple rain, too. Once again many things have mixed themselves here - a feather and butterflies are in the purple water, and the lady seems to be underwater without getting wet. I think this is a fantasy story with an open end. I am linking to AJJ - fantasy scenes.
And here are some impressions from today.
I love walking past the lakes in the afternoon:
The other side of the Rhine was still misty:
And I love this little lane, and the beautiful old wall:
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
