Art Journal Journey and more....

Hi Everybody!

We had another warm and sunny day today, but the next few days will be
wet and windy again. Whatever, we have to take the weather as it comes!

I have made another journal page for Art Journal Journey, favourite poem or quote. The verse I have used is from Psalm 122 verse 6, 'Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper who love thee'
The background was made with brushos. I added more layers of colour with Gelatos when it was dry, blending with a baby wipe. I sketched in the walls and roofs of the houses to look like the houses in Jerusalem. I coloured the roofs with gold and bronze. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin, and to Mix it Monthly, town or village.









I enjoyed my walk along the Rhine and through our 'town' today; spring is a good time to be outside and enjoy nature.







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

  29. Hi Valerie. Your journal pages are beautiful and very interesting,. Love them! The photos you take always stand out. I feel I'm there. Perhaps I'm walking by the Rhine with Vincent. You think? Wouldn't it be awesome to just shake his hand. Have a great weekend.

  30. It's looking very Spring like in your part of the world :) Love the art... the colors are blended so well and so reminds me of pictures I have seen of Jerusalem.

  31. Your journal page is gorgeous and well thought out. I love the addition of the Hebrew letters (characters?). Very nice. Along with you, I am so glad that spring has arrived. It has been a very hard winter for us here in Virginia. My butterfly bush died, all except one long branch, and I have had it for years. Lots of deadwood on shrubbery too. But the flowers now are beautiful.

  44. I'm bit envious of your town. I wish I lived somewhere that nice. Happy PPF! :)

  45. Your project colors are so beautiful today and I especially like the outlining of the text in white. Your photos are also marvelous and spring is definitely here. We had our sprinkling system turned on today. Each fall, they clear the lines and turn it off so now we can water the flowers and lawn.

    Enjoy your weekend; I hope it is beautiful as it was today.

    Hugs,
    C
