In the garden

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at Moo Mania and More,
 'In the garden'.

Projects of all formats are welcome, and you have 2 weeks to link your creations to us, so I hope to see lots of you there. I made a journal page using a background made with a serviette. When it was finished I scanned it and digitally altered it to make it into a stamp, so that it also fits the post-postage challenge at Art Journal Journey. I printed the same background again in Moo format, mounted it onto card, and fixed it to the journal page with some foam squares.








Even spider's webs look beautiful sprinkled with rain drops:


A large flock of wild geese were having a fishing party by the Rhine today:





We had lots of clouds, grey skies and rain again, but here and there a glimpse of blue!






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

  23. Love how you made this awesome page and changed the sizes to suit. I think the stamp would adorn a letter to perfection and make folk happy to receive it.
