Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
For Art Journal Journey, time, I made a mixed media A3 collage. I pasted lots of vintage papers and my image onto the page, and then gave it a coat of gesso when the mod-podge was dry, not enough to cover the background completely, just enough to mute and soften it. I did some background stenciling with cogs and gears (CWS) using rusty hinge DI before I added the next layer. The quote I added at the end is from Virgil (70 BC - 19 BC), one of the most celebrated poets of ancient Rome.
This was the bottom layer before painting over it:

The cows were on the next field:
I love these buds:
The people on the ships are always busy:
The full moon on Friday evening was fantastic, even if it did keep me from sleeping!
The sky on Saturday morning just before sunrise:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
