Today I have 3 pieces to share with you, my journal page for
Art Journal Journey, post and postage,
and a tag for Tag Tuesday. The journal page is also meant for
Moo Mania and More, in the garden. And a page for TIOT, hot and wild, where we want to see your hot colours or wild animals, or both!
My journal page was made using one of my painted and scanned backgrounds, to which I added some extra colour with Gelatos. The meadow flowers stamp is huge one, I think it was from Lost Coast designs. I don't have a block big enough to use it with, so had to resort to using a tin lid. I then digitlly turned it into a postage stamp, and added some real stamps with the butterfly and flowers. Then I stamped some more bits and bobs onto it.
For TIOT I made a journal page. As usual, you have 2 weeks to join up, and
projects of all formats are welcome:
I used some of my fave things for my tag for Tag Tuesday- cardboard, gesso, and Frantage aged EP in gold and copper. The image is from Gecko Galz. The image was cut to size and mounted on some bronze mirri-card. I used a piece of recycled cardboard box, which I distressed, painted round the edges with gesso and then sprinkled the EP directly onto the wet gesso and heat embossed it. I put it all together, and added a strip of vintage lace and some floral bits and that was it - 20 minutes from start to finish.
I love watching the morning sky - here the sun was struggling through the rather black clouds
My walk led me through the gardens of the Marien Hospital (St Mary's). This statue is behind glass, so you can see the reflections of the hospital buildings, too. It's a shame that so many things have to be locked up these days to prevent theft and vandalism.
Then I went into the Basilica. I took some photos of the beautiful golden shrine and reliquary of St Swidbert, dating back to the middle ages. This, too, has to be well protected, so I couldn't get nearer.
The heron was out fishing this morning. He can stand for ages without moving a feather - sometimes he looks like a statue. I just noticed his eyes moving.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
