Since it has been very stormy early morning and then mostly continuing to rain all day, I decided to play in my craft room.
I worked on a duckling in the watercolor-ink instruction book I have been using-and well it was a big failure. I forget allot of times that the ink and the watercolor paints must completely dry before I can continue to paint around them or on them-so one area was just a disaster so I tossed it and will try again.
I looked through my stash of magazine page clippings and created a page in my journal book for AJJ's theme this month of birds.
My cut outs came from a stamping magazine, and the boy fishing was a painting in a vintage Ideals magazine-so I cut out the credits and attached to the above book page. The background is a water scene from another magazine I am still working in the German cookbook for my journal pages.
This page reminded me of a late spring warm day enjoying the water-and listening to the birds sing.
There is a little bird in the clock and then the two birds in the right corner. sorry for the glares-these were the best photos after numerous tries.
