Hope you day has been good! We had sunshine and blue skies all day, and tomorrow should be the same, but then the rain will come back again! Had to jump over a lot of puddles on my walks today, the paths are all very muddy after the rain.
Today I have another Frida journal page / collage. The background is a print of my fave Mexican postcard. I painted it with watered down gesso, and then coloured it a bit with oil pastels. The collage pieces were the last remnants left from clearing up my table last week, and I think they fit well together. I used some vintage ledger paper from 1925 in the background, and some washi tape and paper lace as embellishments. And the faux stitching is from a sheet of rub-ons, which also emerged from the chaos on my table. And why did I put the stitching on? No idea, but somehow I liked it.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, Frida, and to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always by Kristin and Eva.
The canvas is a WIP, which I painted a long time ago. I started repainting it a few months back, and then lost sight of it. And yes - I found it under all the mess on my table, too. It is a 9x12" box canvas, inspired by arches and shop signs that I photographed many years ago in Acco. Since taking the photos I have toned down the yellow, making it more creamy in colour, and still think I need to do some work on it, but I don't yet know what. We shall see!
This morning when I got up there was a blanket of mist over the fields, and as the sun rose, it slowly started to thin out the mist, and it looked beautiful.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
