Hi everyone. Yesterday a really cool thing happened. All afternoon I was thinking about having a grilled cheese sandwich. When my husband came home from work he was carrying a nice artisan loaf of bread and package of some cheese. When I asked him if he was thinking of grilled cheese, he smiled. I love when we're both thinking the same thing without talking about it. (Or smile- maybe we've been together for too long...nope I don't think that could happen.)
June is starting to wind down which doesn't seem possible to me. I think being away and then having a couple of busy weeks has really made this month fly quickly by.
My page today is for Matilde's s Numbers challenge at Art Journal Journey It is made with some transparencies and some scraps off my work table. And, let me add, it was really fun to make.
I started by glueing down a scrap of cheesecloth and my transparencies. The transparency was one big circle that I cut apart. Then I used some hot pink watercolors and painted with them in a purposefully very messy way. To tie the watercolor side with the transparency side I added a few scraps of painted deli paper. I also added the little piece of scrap printed tissue paper because it had some numbers on it for Matilde's challenge.
Finally I added the other transparency (all of these transparencies are from a set by Dina Wakely). I also added some little foam confetti dots as well as a number 3 that I cut out of a sheet of scrap paper. Finally I added the TH quote.
Making this page was quite freeing because I did what felt right, and I didn't think a lot about layout. I love how it just came together.
And let me share some more photos from Iceland for those of you who are interested. Today we're heading east on the Ring Road. We're still along the south side of the island, not far from where we'd turn north and head into the fjords but further east than the waterfalls I showed you last week. That whole day seemed to have a photographic marine layer fog whenever we dipped close to the shore.
Iceland also has many of these one lane bridges. For the majority of them, you just look and see if anyone is coming. Luckily the traffic is fairly light, except in this next photo where we followed someone across the bridge.
One of the other very common birds I saw in Iceland were Whooper Swans. You can see 4 just to the bottom left of the glacier in this above photo. This next photo isn't great, but I have others that I'll share when I get to that part of the trip.
That's all for me today. I have some more photos that I'll share tomorrow.
Thanks for visiting.
