We've been having really good weather these past few days, mild and sunny and quite astonishing for November. I've been making the best of it and was out and about a lot, enjoying the autumnal scenery and fresh air. Sooner or later it will be cold and grey again, so I'm tanking energy as long as it's possible.
I still found time to be creative, as I saved a lot of time by not doing housework. I have been working again using the strips of JD wrapping paper I had, combined with washi tapes, acrylic paints, stencils, die-cuts and a collaged magazine piece, all combined to make an A3 mixed media journal page. I also used the wonderful stamp I won at Paperbabes. The background was painted in vertical stripes using pink, cream, apricot and beige, blended together with a damp brush where the colours met. Then it was stamped with a scroll stamp to give texture. I collaged the paper strips, washi tapes and the magazine face, and then stenciled various patterns using colours which were also in the strips of JD paper. I am linking to Paint Party Friday, Art Impressions Blog, lots of layers and Simon Monday challenge, make your own background:
These are the last photos from my visit to the Botanical Gardens.
Here little bags have been tied onto the plants to catch the seeds - great idea!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
