Heads and hearts

Hi Everybody!

Another day has flown by and I only managed a fraction of what I was planning to do, but I suppose this happens to a lot of us. I am sure time passes more and more quickly as we get older!

For Art Journal Journey, favourite poem or quote, I have made another journal page. The quote is part of the lyrics from a text by Jack Penate. I used another mop-up page after sprinkling brushos and water rather too liberally on a large sheet of paper. I prefer taking off the excess colour with a sheet of paper, as I can then use it for another quick journal page.  I used various stencils in the background, and one of Dina Wakley's moon heads. I drew the body with china ink, added a strip of washi-tape and a heart, and the quote. Quick and easy! I am also linking to the anything goes challenge at stamps and stencils






Today the weather was calmer, but still with lots of clouds scudding across the sky. These photos were taken this morning:





And these 2 this evening:



Have a great weekend, take care of yourselves,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

    1. Hmm, I think I know things like that, too. But as I mostly just talk to myself, it's not so important!

  16. Oh I love the fun and whimsy of this piece!! The colors are great. Those clouds look pretty nasty still. Our rainy weather has passed but it is much cooler today. I actually had to cover my herb garden last night as it was to get below freezing and I had just cleaned it up and trimmed back the dead stuff so it needed some protection. Now I need to get out there and uncover it :)
