Mish mosh...

Can't believe how much I am missing my art space already...
(it is even emptier than this now)
But am looking forward to having my boy home for a while :)
And while we are making a mess we thought why not add soot and cement dust...
 and open up the old fireplace....
 (getting there slowly)
A lovely arting opportunity came as Jackie Beeman's circle journal arrived for me to work in.
Organised by Ayala's Art, we are working in small 5x7 inch journals.
I used water soluble pencils blended with clear gesso,paint pens and permanent marker. The leaves and motto are from Darcy's newest stamp set for Paper Artsy. It says 
"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows will always fall behind you"

 Now some fluffy clouds...
 how fantastic did this many different varieties of cloud over-laying each other...
 and then I spotted the perfection that is wild Honeysuckle growing through blackberry briars!!!
 (smells totally awesome)
Meanwhile...I HAD to do some crafting... so I am knitting another faerie...
( It is a gift for a friend shhhhhhh...)
Enjoy :D XXX
