Our lovely challenge at Art Journal Journey, 'In my garden there is', which Yvonne has hosted so well, is almost over. But as much as we will miss this theme, the next great theme begins on Monday, and I am sure we will
all enjoy it, too.
This double spread was made in my 'old' new journal. The background was brayered and stamped with a script stamp - any paint leftovers I have are used to brayer backgrounds, which is really quick and effective. The poppies were stamped using a set I got from Carolyn (thanks again Sweetie!). I used water colours to paint them, and the dragonflies were stenciled and partly outlined with black ink.
These past couple of days it has cooled down a bit. In my apartment it is still too warm, it takes a long time for the heat to go away. Yesterday it rained, so I put on my Goretex jacket and walked through the rain for 2 hours - wonderful!
The flowers were enjoying it, too:
I love the dandelions in front of the graffiti on the subway wall:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
