A new theme at Moo Mania and More - Poultry (Federvieh)

Hi Everybody!

 Hope your day went well! My day went so quickly that I have the feeling that I didn't get anything done, apart from reading, sleeping and a walk this morning.

Today a new challenge is starting at Moo Mania and More - Poultry (Federvieh). You have 2 weeks to dream up nice creations and link them to Moo Mania, where all formats are accepted.
My journal page is for MM and M and for Art Journal Journey, things with wings. I water coloured the background, added more colours with Gelatos, and stenciled the flying birds and other background patterns. I placed my Cockerels (Image from Gecko Galz, applied with an image transfer) opposite each other, added colour again with Gelatos and felt pens, and stamped some plants and flowers in the foreground. I am also linking to Mixed media monthly, Birds of a feather






Today started off cool and very misty



The mist lifted, but left us with drizzly weather that wasn't really nice for walking


The ducks didn't seem to mind, though.



Have a good day you all, take care, 
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  11. Ha, ha Valerie, your chickens made me laugh. I quite often have days when I seem to have done nothing! At least the days are now getting "longer" and that certainly seems to help with my productivity levels! Lol xx

  24. Love the chickens!!!!! ♥♥♥♥♥ and the quote made me smile very big. We started off with heavy fog this morning but then the sun came out and it was a fantastically beautiful day. Very WARM :) I'm liking these warmer days a whole lot. Even managed to get one of my big flowerbeds all cleaned up and the decorative fence rearranged . Now ti's all ready for the flowers to start filling in and making the driveway all beautiful♥
