Time moves....

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

For Art Journal Journey, time, I have an A3 mixed-media collage. The background was painted with a mix of gesso and titan buff. I used my home made head stencil, added a clock and stenciled the rest  with  cogs using rusty hinge DI. The rest was collaged with bits and bobs from one of my bit boxes, and given a diluted wash of the gesso mixture. Part of the text was written with a stencil, the rest by hand. (Sounds silly, I use my hands with the stencil too, but I hope you know what I mean!)








The fields have all been harvested, some of the leaves are beginning to turn, and the berries are ripening - summer seems to be slowly winding down.












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

  3. I think you have an oxymoron with your hand stenciling. You have some incredibly beautiful pieces to choose from in your bit box. Very nice pieces, in fact. The entire entry is beautiful and rather romantic.

    Summer may be winding down here too, but the heat hasn't dissipated any. I'll be glad when we have cooler temperatures. Love today's photos and those berries look ready to eat!

  8. Your photographs show how well ahead of us your natural year is. It is terrific to see the many berries and plants that you find along your walks.

    The page is wonderful and the quote is so true. I love the old fashioned images, especially the lady with the butterfly hat--terrific.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  19. That's funny, I've never thought of time and memory in that way.
    Your bits and bobs box must be a fascinating place, I spent some time studying the various interesting b&bs in your painting.
    We are still waiting for summer, but it seems like the Rowan berries are extra early this year.
