Hi everyone. Happy Sunday.
Today I want to share another page for Chris' All Kinds of Weather challenge at Art Journal Journey. I am also linking up to day 28 of AEDM.
I started my page by die cutting several umbrellas in different colors of origami paper. I laid them on my page and then stenciled the raindrops around them. I then lifted the umbrellas up to let the page dry. Using the last couple of drops of paint on a paper towel, I rubbed the background so it wouldn't be so white. Once everything was dry, I attached the umbrellas and also outlined them with a black pen.
The girl is an AALL & Create Janet Klein stamp. She was stamped on white paper, colored and then fussy cut. I finished my page by stamping this ancient quote rubber stamp that I think is from the pre-Ranger days of Stamper's Anonymous ( before they starting making Tim Holtz and other stamps), but I am not positive.
We had some rain the Friday that turned to snow. The first snow this season. We only had about a 1/2 inch (1 cm), but it still made the ground white. Winter is here though.
It looks cold and was cold. And there you have the latest New Hampshire weather.
Let me share a few more photos from our trip to the Channel Islands National Park. (Back when it was a more balmy sixty degrees F or 15.5 degrees C. Smile )
I want you to meet my new friend, Mr. Raven. He landed on the dock railing near where we were sitting as we waited for the boat. He and I had a little conversation. I had to apologize to him as I had nothing to feed him, but he didn't believe me. He did like how I told him how handsome he was.
And he did love to be the center of attention and have his photo taken too.
While he and I were chatting, I noticed he had a little side conversation going on with his friend who was flying. I suppose if I fed him then his buddy would have joined us also. What a guy!
I know ravens and crows aren't the most exciting birds to see, but I rather like them. They are smart and clever, and are certainly not timid.
Have a great end to your weekend!
