More Blackbirds

Hi Everybody!
Just a short post today, it's late and I need to sleep, been working hard again!

For Art Journal Journey,  things with wings, I have made a journal page with a crow. The crow is an engraving in one of my old books, which I scanned, and then printed onto one of my backgrounds. I added more colour to the background with Gelatos, and coloured the bird and the trees with water colours. I added patterning with various stencils (home made and CWS) and the birds are from Dina Wakley. The quote is from William Blake. I am also linking to Simon Monday Challenge, a hint of clover. and Moo Mania and More, black birds.







Just 2 photos today, the moon is shining down on me this evening:



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

  6. A stunning page Valerie with the beautiful flowers and the stand out image of the crow in all its glory.

    The moon photographs are perfect--strange how spooky it looks with the bit of a tree branch across it.

    Have a great weekend

    Love Chrissie x

  14. Love the blackbirds!!! I missed the full moon this week :( My Spring allergies have kicked in and so has the Fybro.... March is always tough with the ups and downs of the barometric readings. My body does not like it but it also is telling me that SPRING is really in the works so I'm happy :) Today is beautiful outside and I'm headed out there to enjoy it.
