Happy weekend everyone.
The heat and humidity has arrived. Just in time for July.
Or not to ignore June- for a couple of days at the end of June too.
The flowers seem to love it, especially after the good soaking they got on Thursday.
This is a page from calendar journal. I am linking up to Try It On Tuesday for their things with wings challenge. I am also linking up to Moo Mania and their challenge of your favorite colours. I actually think the more color the better . :) What I don't like about this page is how I tried to blend the the background colors using my markers. As they were water based I thought they might blend better with a damp brush, but no. That didn't work. But the beauty of a journal of any kind is that you get to experiment. The paper in my calendar is pretty flimsy so I just left it as is with my scribble blending.
And the bottom quote is not so crooked but there is a slight bend in my page. Oh man, maybe I shouldn't have posted this page. :)
And many of you mentioned the other day (in your comments) that you wanted to see more of Inari Shrine in Kyoto, Japan, so let me show you some more. If you missed the first round of photos and have any interest in those photos you can link back here: Inari Shrine
As I mentioned Inari Shrine's animal is the fox, so you can buy this white wooden faces, draw your face and then writing your wish on the back.
Even the ground I thought even the ground was pretty.
And the higher you climbed (as this shrine is on the side of a mountain) it became more wooded. And way less crowded.
Near the entrance.
You are supposed to wash your hands, and mouth, if you are asking the Gods for any favors. Now I don't understand or know much of anything about the Shinto religion, so I really don't know if there are actual gods or if it is spirits of passed people you are asking help from.
The mossy rocks are my favorites.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. And stay cool if you are in the heat. (And stay warm if you are in the cold.)
Thanks for visiting.
