Fly Free

Welcome to Monday everyone.
Another grey day here. I'm not sure what I will do with myself today. If it doesn't rain I might go pick strawberries. Or I might do some more wall painting in my daughter's old bedroom- I painted one wall back in February and that's as far as its gone. Maybe I'll just continue the play space cleaning.  Or I might  set up my sewing machine  and play with some stitching I've been hankering to do for awhile.  Then again maybe none of the above. 
Oh the decisions to make-ha-ha!
So yesterday was quiet, rainy and dark. I did a little journaling and watched 3 old movies.  I've been in an old movie kick lately,  a little bit of everything from comedy, to scary movie to drama.
Lots more I'd love to re-watch yet too.
Since June is winding down quickly, I thought I would post one more journal page to Art Journal Journey's masculine and feminine theme. Today's page started with one of my paint stamped backgrounds I made last week, some stamped and painted butterflies, some spray ink, and some paint spots.I then added this old photo of a young Ingrid Bergman I found in a magazine.
 And I love the look of all the raindrops on these leaves out on my deck. The veins ribbing the leaves is pretty cool too.

That's it for me today.
Hope you have a great start to your week.

The leaves are beautiful with the deep purple but the raindrops just bring out more of their natural beauty. It is difficult to get motivated on rainy days but watching old movies is good therapy for the soul! Great journal spread this week.

Lovely piece you created with the perfect words.
I am always attracted to raindrops and dew drops in the garden...
sometimes they sparkle like diamonds ♥
