Hope you are enjoying your weekend. It's a long weekend here
with a Bank Holiday tomorrow. Today the sun came out,
and although it was still cold, it was great to walk
in the sun.
For Art Journey Journey I have made another journal page for the 'Favourite poem or quote' theme. The background was made with brushos over wet gesso, and turned out rather more colourful than I was expecting, but I decided to use it with a fitting quote from Albert Schweitzer. The stencil is home made from a free design from Stencilry.org. I painted the stencil with gesso, and added more white spots and the text with a white highlighter.

Lucky looking fragile....
And Lilly enjoying a rest after feeding time:
Yesterday the postman brought me a little parcel from dearest Chrissie
who sent me a box containing one of her delightful knitted hedgehogs, as well as cards, some embellies, and some pretty felt ornaments which I will show another time. I have named him Spiky, and he already answers to his name. I showed him round my flat and introduced him to the other creatures living here:
He has now settled in and taken up residence on my desk, and seems to like watching what I do on the computer....
Thanks a lot Chrissie, this was a wonderful surprise.
Have a great day, and enjoy the holiday if you have one!
Take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
