A Time for Everything

Hi Everybody!

Our time challenge at Art Journal journey will be finishing at the end of the month, but you still have a few days to join in!

My A3 Mixed Media Page today is meant for AJJ, Our 49 Faces challenge, and for Kim Dellow's show your face.
 The background was painted with gesso, and then I stamped into the wet gesso with a clock stamp. I coloured the background with Gelatos. The flowers and leaves, representing the 4 seasons were drawn or stamped and then painted; the rose is an image transfer with mod-podge.
I am also linking to Mix it Monthly, flowers.








Some photos from my walks:









And the sunrise from this morning:



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

  1. Marvelous interpretation of the theme today matching the verse you used. All of the flowers I love!
    It must have been a bright day as your photos really set off the greens and the blue sky. You are getting up and I am just going to bed. Enjoy Thursday!

    Hugs,

  10. Wow she is a beauty! Gorgeous flowers around her as well. The sunrise is gorgeous, you are lucky you can see them. Here the sun comes up over houses, but it shines into my craft room where I'm sitting which is nice :) Hugs, Shirleyxx

  17. I always thought it was 'gather ye nuts while you may' but maybe I have been watching the squirrels in my garden too long getting ready for winter. Lovely summery work of art. Happy PPF

    1. Too funny! I love watching squirrels, too. There is a song about 'Here we go gathering nuts in May...'

  19. The first thing I noticed when I came back online was your new icon you leave with your comments. It's beautiful and so, so different from the previous one.

    I did a spread in my Time AB that showed the song by the Byrds on one page and the bible verse on the other page. I must confess that mine isn't nearly as colorful, nor does it represent the seasons so well as yours. You turned this into a genuine beauty.

    Your photo of a stream makes it look like you are standing in the middle of it. It is a great shot, as is the sunrise!
