We are having some very changeable weather here - hot and humid one minute, and torrential downpours the next. I managed my walks in
between the heavy showers, but don't want to be caught out in one just now.
Today I did my first left handed journal page, and it took much longer that it would have taken with the right hand. I sprayed the background with some leftover drops of spray inks, and printed the image onto the page when it was dry. The image is from Gecko Galz. It is called 'femme funk' and is available as a single digi stamp.
I coloured parts of the flowers with oil pastels, painted over with a water brush, and gel pens and a white highlighter. It is much harder to do more or less accurate lines with my left hand, but I am sure it is good practice. I used lots of diamond Stickles on the peacock. The white flowers are some rub-ons from my wonderful bit-box. The quote has been computer generated, and I have forgotten from whom it is, sorry.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, flower power.
And believe me, when it rains -
I told you in a previous post that it is Schützen Fest - 'marksmen's festival' here, and the 'big' festivities take place here, just opposite the meadow where the horses are.
You can still see the heap of cut wood left over from the big storm.
My fave is this vintage carousel - and no, I did not go for a ride on it!
At Manus Mikrokosmos the photo challenge this week is in the garden. I don't have a garden, just a little balcony, which is still a pleasant place to sit and drink coffee and watch the birds. My bird is a movement alarm, and sings merrily every time another bird or fly or bee comes near him, and the real birds often answer, too funny! And I enjoy watching the birds who visit to get food, and a squirrel who is partial to hazelnuts!
That's all for today. Take care, have a good one,
and thanks for coming by!
