Surfing the waves

Hi Everybody!

Hope you are enjoying you weekend!

For Art Journal Journey, the sea, I have another journal page. The background was doodled with Gelatos which I swiped over with a wet brush when it was done. The stencil of the surfer was cut using a magazine picture as inspiration. My black pen chose that moment to go on strike, so it looks a bit scratchy. Why do pens always decide to give up the ghost late at night or at the weekend?
Tomorrow will be the last day of our current challenge, so be sure to come by on Monday to learn about the new theme for June.








And with reversed colours:



The fields are all lush with greenery and flowers just now:










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

  2. I enjoy your photos so much. Where I live is pretty much the same the whole year: sand. Cold sand, hot sand... you get the point lol

  4. Terrific photographs of the bright summer colours that are appearing now.

    Love the art page in both colours, and I am pleased to say that I did do some surfing 30+ years ago so I can cross that off my list.:) It seems to have taken on a new lease of life on the East Coast with clubs springing up here and there.

    Have a great day--hope the sun is shining as it is here

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. I love the purple, because it's such a friendly colour, but i LOVE the reversed green. WoW! I like the quote too, to not wait for old age to wear purple - well that's a few of the people I know. Awesome ladies! Enjoy the rest of your weekend Valerie :o)

  10. This is so different for you but I love it. It is quite an eyepiece, and I do think your black pen did you a favor because I think it wouldn't pop so much in black. Your quote is great too! Have a great day!

  16. A fabulous quote, matches the word from a favourite poem of mine. This is a super page and it makes me want to try with the gelatos again when I get home.
