Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - enjoy!
We've got some good weather forecast for the next 2 days, but after that it will be getting more like autumn, so it will be time to get my warm pullovers and jackets out!

Recently, while clearing out my arty kitchen, I found several A3 journal pages which I had started and not finished. This one is now done, the others will follow. The background was painted and collaged with napkins. I rolled over it with my love-words roller-stamp and used stencils for the birds, people and the sentiment. I added washi tape around the edges and sewed over  it:






The following pics were taken in the early  mornings this week:










And these pics are from my walk this afternoon:







And a close-up of the beautiful Nile goose:



Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  6. Beautiful art page you have made. I always enjoy your photos from your walks, there must be hundreds of planes flying over your sky's going by all the vapour trails. Love the photo of the lines of trees and the road disappearing into the distance. Very nice goose photo. Aren't the chest feathers a beautiful colour.

  10. I enjoy finding partially done pieces because I look at them with fresh eyes and that's inspiring. This is a pretty piece. The pink is rather romantic. And I would love to walk through those trees. It is so different from the forests we have here. Enjoy your autumn weather. hugs-Erika

    The path into those woods tempts me. I'd be a mile in before I realized it. It looks like such an inviting place to walk :)

    We had a wonderful sunny day yesterday (Saturday) and some very welcome rain today (Sunday) … I think, here in the UK, we too will need our rain jackets in the coming week.
