Leaf Flowers

Some abstract flowers today for Art Journal Journey. I made these up, they are not really "In My Garden", which is the theme this month that talented Yvonne has chosen.  I would take them though.
They are all hand painted on a Gelli print, then I did a small amount of stamping to finish off the page.
Our heat is coming back today. Sounds like a good afternoon for my hammock and my book. The dogs are exhausted after our walk and then they ran around while I did a bit of work in my garden. I need to think about packing as I leave on Monday afternoon, which I might start or wait until tomorrow. I have the entire day and night to myself tomorrow as my hubby has work, dialysis and then is going for an overnight sleep study test at the hospital. And tomorrow my daughter has to work and then is going off to the boyfriends for part of the weekend. So it would give me lots of time to pack. Never mind that's me in this summer break mode, everything seems to be put off until tomorrow. (Except my morning walk, my art time and my book and my hammock. I must be really burnt out to be living at that kind of pace-and loving it!)
Anyhow, hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

Your painted flowers are so pretty and original Erika.
You make me want to get out my paint brush altho I am much more comfy with scissors and glue ;-)
You must be getting excited about your trip.
Good idea to rest up so you can go go go in Iceland.

p.s. I like saying ICELAND because it's such a cooling word.
I always thought it odd that Greenland is covered in snow and Iceland is usually beautifully green. Well the times I flew over them anyway.

The flowers in your garden are colorful and unique. I would certainly take them. Did you plant them from seed (grin)?

You really MUST be relaxed because I couldn't relax until I was packed and had gone over my list at least twice. I'm obviously too anal. I know you are excited, though, and it wont be long now. Sort of like counting down the days until school was out. Enjoy your relaxing day, dear.
