Hi everyone. We have one more day of April left. March seems like it was a long time ago, but it also doesn't seem possible that we're just about in May.
I have one more page for Valerie's geometric challenge at Art Journal Journey that I want to share with you.
This page began back in the winter when I wanted to try a technique which was going around the blogosphere. I painted some watercolor paper with some dark blue paint. Then I sprayed it with multiple colors of ink sprays. Once dry, I stenciled the hexagons with white paint. I love the color effect it created.
Then I drew and colored the flower with some painted and watercolor crayons. I cut it out and attached it. Well fist I attached the TH target looking image from one of his packs of ephemera. I did make it a bit more vintage with some brown ink, and I also added some white paint dots too. The bumble bee was stamped, colored and fussy cut. Finally, I used some small stamps and stamped various words and phrases.
And I have some early spring photos to show you. First some flowers blooming and almost blooming in my garden.
Cheery tree blossoms will be out soon.
This last shot is an area that I still need to bark mulch. I bought another load on Wednesday, my last that I need.
And here's a few views from my walk on Tuesday.
We're still waiting for more green.
A big old vulture came flying out of the woods as the dogs and I walked by.
And a mom update. They have dropped her oxygen from 6 to 4 liters. She seems to be handling it, but is very sleepy. BUT as the doctors tell us, they way this disease goes she could continue to be stable, she could improve, and/or she could still go downhill. It is just a waiting game to see.
Have a great end of the month, and thanks for visiting.
