A bright head

Hi Everybody!

Just a quick post this evening, the day has run away from me again!

For Art Journal Journey, favourite poem or quote, I made another page using one of 'my' heads - I have heads in all sizes! I made a torn paper background, which I lightly gessoed so as not to completely conceal the underlying text. I used lots of Gelatos to let my head shine. The quote is from Katrina Mayer.






I bound another 10 journal pages using a thermal binder


We had a wonderful sunrise and warm and sunny day:






The crow who likes to sneak in and eat the fat balls tried to hide in the tree again when he saw me!


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

  5. Oh I love the lady who lost her head - but she looks quite at ease with it. It's a really fun page with a serious message which I will think about! Great background too.
    Great photos of the sunrise, what a great view you have.

  6. Your heads are always so much fun. I think they are your specialty, that and taking bird photos, and sunrises too!

    1. Yes, that crow is funny! It was just hiding behind my gorse bush, and kept peeking through the flowers to see if I was still there!

  17. Love your light bulb man, great background! We have Jackdaws that come and swing on the nut feeders but as soon as we appear at the window they fly up into the trees, so I love your cheeky Crow! Chrisx

  19. Brilliant spread your Light creation Valerie!
    You handled the words in a very good way too which could be tricky...
    sometimes I don't know which way to send words around a page :-)
