The big snow storms thankfully didn't strike here,
but it is very cold. Today we had sunshine and blue skies,
the ground was frozen hard, and lots of
hungry birds were hopping around.
For Art Journal Journey, Erika's lovely theme of
'Tell me a story', I have a double page in my
New journal number 2. One of the things I 'inherited'
from one of my old ladies was a box of torn
up photos and letters, with the instructions, 'Do what
you like with them but don't give them to my brother!'
Here I have used some of the fragments of photos
and letters, and a part of a Hebrew text. I interspersed the fragments
with scraps of paper napkins. A thin coat of gesso
knocked some parts back. I used soft wax crayons
to add some colour, and some random stamping.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday:
I took some dry bread with me when I went out,
and it was enjoyed by gulls, ducks and the fishing raven, who
was looking rather bedraggled today:
The gulls swarmed around, it was rather a Hitchcock moment:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
