We had a very chilly and windy day, with lots of rain, but in between the sun peeked out, and right now the moon is smiling down at me.
Bad weather gave me lots of crafty time today, so I was busy making some little altered note books as presents for people.
My collage for Art Journal Journey was once again made in my Giant Journal. I made it last week when we had sunshine, so we have blue skies, green fields and lots of birds hopping about on the houses in our little town. The river has been made with a piece of yarn that Patty sent me, and it looks like there is a ship chugging through. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday. I used various scraps of blue and green papers, mirri-card and washi tape, and did some stitching as embellishment.
The first 2 notebooks were painted front and back with black gesso and sprinkled with fairy dust. On the first one I added 2 TH bird die-cuts, and the on the second one a golden ginkgo leaf. I used crackle glaze on the fronts, and rubbed Inka gold into the cracks.
The third one was collaged with tiny scraps of paper and stamps, crackled, distressed, and got a bike as focal motive.
Mr and Mrs Blackbird spent more time on my balcony than anywhere else today, and were particularly keen on the nuts:
A pair of wood pigeons arrived today, hiding in the tree at first, but got bolder and bolder and rewarded themselves with a good tuck-in on my balcony.
The little robin still bosses them all about, when he turns up, he expects all the others to take flight!
Have a good day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
