Yesterday started off sunny and warm, and a couple of hours later it started raining, and in the afternoon it poured and stormed - we seem to be in for a few wet days so I am glad that I have my new wellies ready to wear! The night was lit up by lightning and the thunder was not good for sleeping....
I spent the afternoon painting water colour backgrounds in A3 size, This is something which is very calming and I like to have a stock ready to work on. This one was perhaps inspired by the lovely sunrise and the blue of the skies and water yesterday. When it was dry I went to work with the stamping. I used Ryn's beautiful sea bubbles stamp, with embossing ink and white EP, as the blue reminded me of waves. The stamp of Leda, looking down on the scene, is from Lost Coast Designs, as are the underwater plants at the bottom. The birds were stenciled with Dina Wakley's stencil. The other stamps were a set I got as a present, and I don't know the maker.
I have written a quote along the right hand side, from Goethe(1789):
Wind is the loving
Wooer of waters;
Wind blends together
Spirit of man,
Thou art like unto water!
Fortune of man,
Thou art like unto wind!
I saw this huge Dahlia (?) yesterday, about 10" diameter, really beautiful.
The sunrise was beautiful:
And the heron was out fishing again:
And last but not least, the horses, busy grazing, as always.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
