We had a real sun day here, very cold and frosty, but sunny and great for walking. I enjoyed my walks along the Rhine, and clocked up 17,650 steps today, so I was happy with that.
For Art Journal Journey, 'Inspired by....' I chose to be inspired by Frida Kahlo and her colourful work. Yesterday I had a couple of play-hours trying out effects with brusho, and this page made me think of Frida straightaway. Some parts looked like flowers, so I gave them some more colour and drew round them. I used a stamp (Lost Coast Designs) which was stamped with Archival black and embossed with fine EP. I added a strip of washi tape with birds and flowers, and wrote some quotes around the edges. The wings were stamped with Stazon onto foil, The page is for my giant journal again.

The day started with a wonderful sunrise:
I had a swarm of starlings on my balcony today, they are new guests. I think my balcony is being tweeted as a good place to eat breakfast. They are very pretty, and extremely fast, it was very difficult to take their photos!
The heron was walking through the meadows by the Rhine today, and found itself something to eat, looked like a mole....
The afternoon sky was beautiful
And the moon was wonderful.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
