Love letter

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - have a good one!

I made this page for art journal journey a couple of weeks back, and then lost track of it because I had put the photos into the wrong file.  The lady with the letter background was scanned and digitally altered to a stamp again. I placed the large image onto an A3 background painted with green and  blue metallic paint, then  added an image of a  hand writing a letter. I think the lady is dreaming of getting a letter from her loved one. I added the stamp, and stenciled some  flourishes and text. As a final touch I added some stamping.






Some pictures of my hot and sunny walk today. The horses were all in a shady corner of the meadow, near their water trough.




We had some very loud thunder storms in the night and into the early morning hours, so in the end I got up and took some photos of the sky:





And the crow was waiting for his breakfast as always:


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

  1. This art journal creation is soooo romantic. Everything about it just makes me smile - but it's the type of smile that comes when you are thinking back to memories of times when just the right note or letter from someone special made life seem perfect. BEAUTIFUL Valerie. j.

  12. A very beautiful lady, Valerie, and so inspiring how you use the stamps, never thought about scanning and then using images for art work. Lovely photos as always, can you imagine, yesterday we had 10 degrees and it's summer. We're dressed as for autumn! Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie.

    Love and hugs
