The cold temperatures are back, but not too cold. The sun is shining although they say tonight we could get a small amount of snow. Next week we are suppose to get pretty warm by middle of the week- all the way to 60 (15 degrees C). I hope that doesn't mean the following week gets snowy and cold. I am hoping for a low snow February (and March).
I need to use this sunny moment sun to snap some photos of some art I have made.
Lucky you who get a 3 day holiday President's Weekend here in the US. We don't get Monday off at school, but only 1 more week until our winter break. I am SOOOO ready for that.
So today I do have a journal page I photographed at night, so it's got a bit of a shadow. I am linking up to Art Journal Journey and Rike's fun challenge of Animals A-Z.
Red-orange is a hard color to get right in artificial light.
Sotoday I went for an Indian feel to my page. Or least I was attempting to get that. My background is made with my pastels washed with water and scrapped with a credit card. Then I stamped and colored the elephant. I added some bits of printed tissue paper on the edges of the page. I painted and Stabilo pencil outlined the leaves, stamped some flowers which I then colored in and added the TH phrases.
I added some small green German scrap flowers and put some sparkle in their centers.
Finally I needed to do something for a border to finish the look I was going for, so I edged the page with a black Sharpie and fringed the edges with some scissors.
The hubby and I are also off to my Mom's to be sure she is stocked up on items she needs, which means we'll be gone all day between driving and visiting. But it will be nice to go out and enjoy a little sunshine from the road.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
