Hope you are all well and fit and are having some good weather.
Here it was rather hot and sultry today, but we did have some
spectacular clouds, which I always love.
For Art Journal Journey, the sea, I have made another mixed media piece. The background was painted first with gesso, and then with various blues and greens using a wide, hard brush, and I stamped into it while wet to make a crackle pattern. I also added a little bit of fairy dust. I added more colours with Gelatos. I used the rising bubbles stamp from Ryn Tanaka, stamping several times with embossing ink and white EP. I added the quote, and that was that. I love the scratchy effect in the background, made by the rough bristles.
The day started off with wonderful clouds
I discovered these beautiful poppies growing by the wayside
The banks of the Rhine are full of plants and flowers
The horse chestnut is in the grounds of the Marien Hospital, as is the statue
I love the wisteria
Lily was sleeping in her little cat-cave
And Lucky was trying to tell me something....
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
