Hi everyone. Happy Sunday to you. I hope your weekend is going well.
Today I have some photos and also a piece of art to share. I call today's art journal page Dreamscape.
I started with a dark blue piece of paper that I stenciled with lighter blue paint. The stencilled design was some triangles. When looking at the page, it was telling me to cut it apart, so I did. Before I glued the pieces down onto some watercolor paper, I rubbed the white page with some light blue ink .
I used a large acetate horoscope starscape image in the center of my page and stamped the word dream onto it. I drew the cloud and fussy cut it, and then I added a chipboard cat that was already colored, but I did add some white to him. I also added some small white foamy stars, and that's my page.
I am linking up my collaged page over at Art Journal Journey. You probably know by now that Bleubeard and Elizabeth are hosting this month with a challenge of food or collage fodder. Or you can combine them both.
And since I have loads of photos from places to share from little adventures that go all the way back through summer, I thought today I would share some photos from a place called The 3 Sisters' Sanctuary in Goshen, Massachusetts. My friend and I visited here back in August during our trip to the Berkshires. (You might remember I shared lots of photos from Edith Wharton's summer home and also from Turnpark Art Space way back when, but I've never gotten around to sharing these.)
Three Sisters' Sanctuary was an eclectic collage of various types of material. I guess you could say it was mixed media in 3 dimensions and full of collage fodder for certain.
The violinist is actually a statue.
One exhibit in this art garden was a memorial stone wall, where people could leave "something" in tribute to someone or something they had lost. It was fascinating to see what people left. Here's a few views, as the horseshoe shaped wall was quite large.
We spent a long time looking at all the tributes left.
I keep thinking of what tribute I could leave for my Mom, and I am between a pencil (as she loved doing crossword and other word/number puzzles) or a spoon (as she loved having her daily bowl of ice cream).
I have more from the park to share another day. Have a great end to your weekend and start to the new week.
