The Blue Bird of Happiness

Hi there everyone.  Happy Friday.
It's day 22 of Art Everyday Month and here's my piece for today.
I used a gelli print for my blue sky background  and  added this punch out bird (Studio Light art by Marlene). 
I am hoping for some of this blue sky this weekend. It's that time of year when I see blue sky out my work window but never seem to get to be out in it until the weekend arrives. I miss being outside, and since we are suppose to get a bit warmer weather (well at least not as cold)-hurrah-I am hoping to get outside for walk or maybe even finish up some yard work.  
But since I haven't gotten a lot of real blue sky time, I can get some art blue sky time.
That's my page for you today.
Thanks for visiting.

Beautiful page and blue bird, and a wonderful idea to create your own blue sky. Here it is a bit milder, 6° instead of the chilly minus temps, so I'm enjoying it as long as it lasts! Hugs, Valerie

I haven't done gelli printing in a long time but when I see beautiful backgrounds like that, I am inclined to dig it out again. Very nice, Erika.

Hope you are feeling better!

I so love blue, but don't always find it easy to work with because it's such a strong colour. This is beautiful. Love the contrasts and the shapes. I hope you get to see some beautiful blue sky at the weekend, Erika and feel a bit of sun on your face at least! The hardest thing about this time of year is the lack of light, so I have daylight bulbs in as many rooms as I can. It's definitely cocooning weather. Have a great weekend!

It's gray/rainy here, so I'm enjoying your blue bird/blue sky art :)

Your art piece is lovely. We do get a lot of nice looking blue skies at this time of year here in New England. Looks like the weekend might be a mixed bag of sun and rain though. Saturday is probably the better day for yard work.

A gorgeous sky colour for your background, its a lovely page. We could do with some blue skies here instead of the grey.

I want to thank you for stopping by yesterday. Nothing is broken, but I’m so sore I can’t sit and type with one hand for any length of time. I am sending this generic message because I want you to know I stopped by, appreciate you, and read your post today. Thanks for understanding.

Happy belated Friday ...lol 😉. I hope you are feeling better! Your blue sky page is beautiful, I love your gelli print background with your blue bird in her pretty crown 😁. We have been bottling pumpkin beer this morning and then I hope to be starting my Christmas cards this afternoon. Wishing you a happy weekend! Hugs, Jo x

Jeanie said...

Definitely a bluebird of happiness, but I'm with you on the real blue sky time. It looks to be a sunny day here today, so fingers are crossed!

Love this study in blue. A great Gelli page to begin with and then the bird added.
Takes me back years ago when I went through a phase of using watercolours and achieving lots of shades of one colour to make pictures - I can still remember my blue page which I loved.
Hugs, Neet xx
