Our times

Hi Everybody!

Hope your weekend is going well!

For Art Journal Journey, time, I made an A3 mixed media page in warm and sunny colours. The background is one of my scanned torn-paper ones, and after placing it on the A3 page I coloured the edges with red and yellow Pan pastels. I used lots of stamps, from Paper Artsy, LaBlanche, Tattered Angels and unknown, all stamped with Archival black. The text was written with a stencil, and I just managed to get it finished before my pen ran out of ink, but in the meantime I have bought a new refill.







The night was stormy with lots of rain, and the sun this morning looked more like the moon!


I enjoyed my umbrella walk, walking in the rain is always fun, and I like having the world all to myself.



The horses in what used to be the  moat were busy grazing, as always.




The honeysuckle smelled very fragrant :



The insects liked it, too!


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

  1. That's a wonderful stencil. You did a great job, too. I really enjoyed the quote I'd never heard before, and I thought I knew all the "Time" quotes. Your little birds are the crowning touch to this masterpiece.

    I really enjoy your walks. Those horses look so happy and healthy. I can almost smell the fragrance of the honeysuckle. Have a super rest of the weekend.

  6. einen klasse spruch hast du wieder ausgewählt: und so wahr! ich trage übrigens keine Armbanduhr (nur in der schule brauchte ich natürlich eine, aber das ist ja jetzt vorbei), hab im Normalfall auch kein handy dabei. und man kommt auch sehr gut durch den tag, ohne ständig auf die Uhr zu kucken!

    1. Das ist wahr, wenn man nicht ständig auf die Uhr schaut kann man besser auf die innere Uhr hören.

  11. Great quote today! I agree about the time. I feel like I have been off from work for 6 weeks and still haven't had tons of time....you picked that right using all those clocks. Hope this weekend is going well (or went well). :)

  14. GREAT ART AGAIN TODAY ♥ It's overcast here and threatening to rain the garden will like it if it does. Otherwise I will have to water this evening. My kitchen table is covered in tomatoes again. :)

  16. Using a stencil for that cool quote really adds special interest to this lovely piece you created.
    How nice too that your pen ran out of ink at just the right time :-)
    We have wild honeysuckle here in Virginia. Not pretty pink like yours but the fragrance is the essence of summertime to me ♥

  17. Gorgeous bright oranges and yellow in your journal page today. It reminds me that autumn is near. I too have oodles of clocks but no time. What a great quote! The photos of the horses are magnificent and they are groomed so well. I love looking at them. Have a great new week, Valerie.

    Hugs,

  18. Gorgeous colorful page, Valerie.
    Those horses are lovely and that honey suckle certainly looks sweet. Do the hummingbirds like it? Our new neighbours put out a feeder and now we get to see the little speedsters all the time.
    Hugs,
