From Dawn till Dusk

Hi Everybody!
It's weekend - enjoy!

For Art Journal Journey, time; 49 faces and Kim Dellow's Show your face
I have another mixed media A3 journal page. I gessoed the page,  drew and painted the face, the roses were stenciled using red structure paste, and the butterfly, clock and quotes were stamped. I sprayed some red and green round the edges.








I was up very early today, and sat watching the dark sky grow light and the sun rising - always a very beautiful time








The shadows  on the curtains


The midday sky


And the evening sky with the rising moon:




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

  3. Your day really was from dawn to dusk in photos. Lovely ones, too. I am in awe of that moon shot.

    I don't have any stamps with sayings, so I was impressed with how you combined yours. Of course, the lovely lady caught my eye, but I thought the butterfly and clock were a single stamp until I read what you wrote. It was really special, the way you combined the two.

    I have never heard of structure paste before, but the flowers turned out lovely.

    I sure hope I've caught up, because I didn't think I'd ever get through these gorgeous posts. I read every word, inspect every photo, and take my time oohing and ahhing over everything I see. So now I can wish you a very happy weekend and thank you again for the lovely comments while I was out of town.

  31. Fantastic photos. the blues of the clouds near the end is spectacular. Thinking of an old hippie song from the 60's "be sure to wear flowers in your hair". She wears them so well. xox
