Dreams.

Hi Everybody!

The weekend has sped by, and the new week is already here - have a good one!

For Art Journal Journey, the sea, I am once again showing the contents of my head - or of one of my heads, at least. This head is dreaming of the sea. I used a brush-wipe page as background. I added some  colours with Gelatos. I drew the head with one of my stencils onto some water-coloured paper and collaged it to the background. The sea-weed has been made using the waste from TH's bird-branch die cut as a stencil. The ship,anchor and lighthouse/houses have been stamped and embossed.. The white birds were doodled with a white pen, the dark ones made with Dina Wakley's stencil. There is also a stenciled dolphin. I added some colour to the 'town' with inks. This was another fun make!






The sun tried to show itself this morning, but  the clouds were more persistent.



There was just one duck swimming around:


A Sunday fisherman:



My fave path long the old walls:


And four footed friends, big and small:





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

  14. That's a gorgeous page! I know I'm completely biased - a/ because I love your work and b/ because I'm addicted to anything remotely connected with the sea, but - it's beautifully serene. I can hear the waves!

    Lovely photos as always and especially fabulous for ducks, horses AND kitties! The Colonel waves a friendly paw to his fellow fabulous felines! Hugs and summer sun from Shroo:)xxx

  15. I really like how you incorporate the head It just doesn't look out of place at all! I would never think of doing something like that. Your brush off background is fabulous. It's a bank holiday here today, so no school. We've both just had a late breakfast and chilling online for a wee whle then maybe some board games are in order. Hope you have a good day too {{Hugs}} :o)

  18. Great picture "Dreaming of the Sea", I especially like the background with all the colours, the lighthouse and the ship. I like the way you made the seaweed too.
    That is one of my favourite of your walks - the lane with the lamp.
    And finishing up with the sleeping kitty - perfect - she's dreaming of her next meal I suspect.

  34. You sure have a lot going on in your head! All I have floating around in my grey matter is jelly doughnuts and dreams of starting an exercise program. I liked it when you were counting steps. I found that I wanted to do that too! I do enjoy your creative energy!
