More Birds, beasts and humans

Hi Everybody!

Hope you have enjoyed your weekend. Have a good start in the new week!

For Art Journal Journey I have made another A3 journal page. For the background I sprinkled brushos onto a damp page and then sprayed with more water to get the colours moving. I used stencils from Dina Wakley with black acrylic paint for the faces. The  elephant was also made with a stencil, but I don't know the manufacturer. The steampunk birds with human faces are from Paper Artsy. I stamped them onto tissue paper with archival black and embossed with extra fine EP. The quote is from DH Lawrence, and was hand-written.







We had another grey day here with rain and sleet showers. Not many people were about today, but lots of seagulls, who enjoyed my leftover bread.




The ducks didn't seem to mind the weather either!



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

  1. The colors in your art journal are wonderful - I love the richness of them. The Dina Wakley stencils look good, I love the bird on it! Beautiful writing - I admire everyone who has beautiful handwriting; my own is awful!

  2. Lovely page encompassing the theme perfectly with that quote. The birds made me think spring is not far off today. In reality we are in the dead of winter over here.

  3. Good Morning Valerie. What fabulous pages, so very colourful too. Love your winter scene pictures, you have captured the birds and the wintery day. Some beautiful sunshine here in the last few days, but icy cold outdoors. Hugs Rita xxx

  6. Guten Morgen, liebe Valerie! Deine Vögel und Gesichter sind superschön geworden. Ich mag die Gesichter, weil sie wie kleine Monde über allem zu schweben scheinen. Eine tolle Arbeit.
    Eine schöne Woche wünsche ich Dir!

  7. The birds certainly take centre stage today even the ones on your artwork. Love the bright colours and the way you let them run down the page to blend together.

    Have a great day

  21. What an imaginative colourful page.
    It looks like not much h*******k will be done this month again!
    You are really rocking at AJJ.
    Funny how the ducks and seagulls don't mind the wet weather, you would think they would want to come in and sit by the fire.
