I have a scheduled post today for my first entry for the new challenge at Susi's Art Journal Journey, 'Deep in the forest', co-hosted this time by Sheila.
I worked hard last week preparing stuff in advance because of the OP.
The OP went well, thanks to all who left comments with good wishes. The 'nasty bits' have all been removed, and now it just needs to heal.
For me forests are dark, deep and magical. As a child I loved the fairy tales, and all the creatures who lived in the forest, and was quite disappointed later when I learnt that not all forests were populated by fairies and witches, families of talking animals, elves and gnomes. The background of my picture was painted with left over colours from other projects, and then repeatedly sprayed, dripped and dried, to give many colours and layers. I stamped over part of it with a crackle stamp to give the semblance of foliage. Then I outlined the drips using an electric blue gel-pen. The small leaves falling from the trees have been stamped, and then outlined with a black fine-writer. I drew and painted the little toadstools, and then added my 'inhabitants'. I think I have stayed a child at heart, and still love making magical pictures.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin.

Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by.
