After a really hot and sunny day yesterday we had some cooler weather today, which did good. I spent a lot of time out on my bike again yesterday, riding along the Rhine in the shade of the trees, and with a nice wind to bring some relief- I could have gone on all day, well, if my butt hadn't been so sore!
For this journal page I used a brush-wipe page, which I sprayed with some blue to fill the gaps. I need to practice using my hand again, so doodling and lettering with a stencil are a good exercise. The stencil I used on the left is called 'grave fireflies', and is from stencilry
I kept to a limited colour palette, perhaps because I was too lazy too get up and get more pens after so much cycling!
Yesterday a big, fat envelope from Susi in Austria arrived here, what a treat!
First and foremost, this beautiful tag with a moo:
Paper Napkins for backgrounds:
Toys to play with:
And some crafty literature for inspiration.
But best of all is to know I have friends who care about me.
This is where I rode on my bike yesterday:
Plenty of shadow:
My trusty bike with me sitting on it - you can't see me, though!
Rural scenes that reminded me of van Gogh:
And lots of sheep:
Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by.
