Hi everyone. Happy Sunday. And
Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there too.
Here's a couple of very old snapshots of my Dad, long before he even thought about me being in his life. Smile.
I'll be thinking of you today Dad, like I do most days.
Today I have a page for Matilde's challenge at Art Journal Journey. Don't you just love this lady? I found her in the pile of magazine pages sitting on the floor next to my work table. One day I'll finally have used up all my magazine images...maybe-smile.
I also love the background on this page. I started by stamping the big numbers with black ink. They are from an old and long defunct stamping company called Ma Vinci. It's sad how so many great old stamp companies are long gone; not that there aren't new ones to replace them.
I used a circle stencil and drew some circles that I painted with this pink-purple acrylic paint. Once that dried I inked my page with some matching pink- purple and some purple ink. Finally I used that pink-purple ink and stamped some Roman numerals. To finish this page, I went with the books under this lady's arm and stamped the quote.
It's been a pretty wet spell since before I came home from Iceland, and this weekend has been a bit of a wash out. I've had a few outdoor projects I've wanted to get done last week, and now I'm just hoping I can get them finished this upcoming week. You can't change the weather, so what can you do but wait?
There's also a lot of water in Iceland, and a lot of waterfalls. We saw maybe (and I'm not exaggerating) several hundred. If not more. Most of them were just small flows over cliff sides, but a few were really spectacular. Today let me share another waterfall with you. Here's one where you can actually walk behind the waterfall. It's called Seljalandsfoss. It's not too far from the one I shared with you yesterday that was called Skogafoss.
The hubby needed to bring an actual raincoat-smile. He thought his travel poncho would be enough. I think he looks like a bad version of batman, but I love this photo of him.
Of course we had to climb up and walk behind it.
I love photos of falling water.
I am linking this post up to Gillena's Sunday Smiles. Hope you enjoyed these. And
enjoy what's left to your weekend.
