I know saguaro cacti are not exactly strictly Mexican, but they are Southwestern. So today being the Mexican Holiday I thought I would share these gelli prints I made using a homemade stencil and mask I made of a saguaro cactus.
I was really happy with the way these 2 pages came out,and I can't wait to figure out how to use them in my journal.
I was also lucky enough in 2012 to visit Southern Arizona and get to see these really cool plants in person.
These are photos I took. I didn't know these cacti can grow to be many stories high and its tens of years before they start branching out. I learned all that my trip to Tucson.
I was so amazed by them I actually made some pages in my travel journal referring to them.
So we had a blast of summer yesterday and last night. Slept with all the windows open. Oh love it. Going to be a bit cooler today, but still beautiful! Oh, I wish I was still on vacation!! Ha-ha!
And lastly, since today is Cinquo de Mayo, have a burrito and a margarita to celebrate the vibrant culture of Mexico. Yum, think I'll do that myself tonight too.
Thanks for stopping by.
