Double Window Page

 Not sure I am done with this spread or not, but right now I am happy with its simplicity. I am linking this to Art Journal Journey, hosted this month by Corrine. The theme is windows, and so I cut 3 openings into my right page of this spread so you could peak into the next 2 page spread.
This second piece is the second spread that windows open up into. You can see the top window on the left.
 I love both backgrounds and didn't think I wanted to cover it over too much, so a few  stamped and painted and fussy cut images went onto them.
Here's the rest of my top spread with the window's on the right-you can just see the top window with the butterfly wing in it.
I used Dina Wakely stamped images and some acrylic paints and stencils to make the backgrounds.
So we are having gorgeous weather here in New Hampshire this 3 day  weekend, but today is warming up a bit more! And so far it has been a great weekend for me! I've done some more sun printing, took several long relaxing walks, went for a fabulous boat trip and even (finally!!!!) got my living room finished up and back together.  Plus a few other things...I've got some photos but they are not yet off my camera. Hopefully I can show you some tomorrow.
What more could a girl ask for on her long weekend?
Hope everyone is enjoying either their holiday weekend or the normal weekend was a good one.
More from me some other day!

Oh Erika, I simply adore the windows you created. Not simple at all, but very colorful and quite complex.
