Hi everyone. Happy new week to you. And happy Labor Day holiday to you if you live in the US or Canada. I hope if you have the long weekend you are enjoying it.
Today I am sharing another page for Neet's challenge at Art Journal Journey. You can see I am going with feathers today. Neet gave us a choice with her challenge of fur and/or feathers.
My page is made on a smaller piece of blue-grey paper (4x6 inches). I stamped and colored the eagles; there are 2, but sadly most of the upper one is covered by my image. I didn't do a great job figuring out what should go where on my page, but it still works.
I also added some feathers to my background. I colored those in with a white pen. As well as those feathers, I added lots of marker dots to give my background a bit more interest. The beautiful face is a cut out copy of a stamp I have. I didn't actually stamp the face, but I copied and cut out the sheet that came on the front of the package. It was colored perfectly to fit with my page, so I figured why reinvent the wheel? (Even if it does feel a bit like cheating.)
A reminder that at Art Journal Journey we only accept art journaling pages. Please do not link up photos or art pieces that are not journal pages. Thanks.
Let me also share a few more photos of the gardens and the grounds at the Mount. Yesterday I showed you the formal flower garden, and in today's photos we head down a tree lined walkway to the other end of the garden.
Wharton liked a lot of symmetry when she designed the grounds as well as the house, but it wasn't 100% actual symmetry because the other end of the gardens were a bit different.
That's all for me today.
Have a great week!
NOTE: Just an FYI to all of you who stop by. I have a few scheduled posts for the next week and a half. My husband is on vacation, and we are heading out to visit some National Parks early tomorrow morning. However, I won't be joining in for T day, Rain's Thursday Art and Dinner Date, Nicole's Friday Face off or Gillena's Lunch break until the middle of the month when I return home.
