So today I have a journal page for the latest theme at Art Journal Journey, Into the Woods. This month the hostess is Chris.
This was a journal page that started off with me just stenciling those fern leaves in black to use up some extra paint on my pallet. Then I spray inked the page, but at that point I didn't know where I was going to take it. However I love where it did take me, into the canopy of the tropical rain forest. I used the toucan stamp (Earth Art International) and the hummingbird stamps (Ryn's stamps) along with a couple of tiny stamps by Hero Arts. I painted the flowering vines by hand and then doodled in the vines and branch, as well as painting the stamped bird images.
So my weekend improved after its rocky start with my husband getting admitted to the hospital with a very erratic heartbeat. He came home Saturday, and was back to his old self so we went out and ran some errands we needed to do.
Big smile for him feeling back to himself, not for the errand part.
Look at this crazy guy we saw on the side walk trying to drum up some business for an ice cream/ frozen yogurt place.
My daughter was driving and you can see her waving.
I also got out for a long walk this weekend since we had some beautiful spring like weather.
You can see the mud on the road into the woods. Our road being gravel was a little soft but not bad. We did have to hose the dogs down when we got back.
You can also see the ice is just about out on a lake in our town.
But that didn't stop our dog from going for her first swim of season.
She didn't care if the water wasn't warmer than the freshly melted ice.
This is actually going to be an early ice out year with this warm March we are having.
I am so OK with that.
This warm weather is putting me in a spring cleaning mood. I went to play with my art supplies yesterday afternoon and actually felt guilty about not cleaning. So I decided to do the most fun cleaning I could think of and got back into some supply cleaning. I went through a bunch of my stamps which was actually so much fun. I love finding things you haven't used in forever and forgot you had.
And now it is Monday morning and I am off to work. Tough morning since we moved the clocks an hour ahead...love it in the evening but takes a few days to get into the swing of this time schedule.
Hope everyone has a good start to their week-
and thanks for visiting!
