A new week and I think I'm ready to join the living again. It seems I've been missing in action forever but it's actually only been a week. I lost the battle with the cold I was fighting off last week and went down for the count. Not over it completely but at least I'm somewhat functional today.
Even in the mood to do a bit of art :)
Since several of my journals are almost full I decided to get a couple of new ones recently. A buy one one free sale made it convenient and affordable to get several sizes. So now I have a larger size than I've ever had before :) 9" X 12" which just happens to be my favorite size to work with ♥
So I picked out magazine pictures and started a collage. Of course I forgot to take the first stage photo. But here's the next step.
The deer where in a conservation magazine and the awesome door was in a Home Depot Associate Magazine... the earth photo came out of a National Geographic . The bird was free hand drawn .
Then filling in the background and adding some details...
Painting the bird and painting over the deer to make them look more like a fantasy creature. Also adding more details to the sky again for the fantasy feel I was striving for. The door was so pretty that I decided not to paint over it :)
I'm not sure if it's done but I'm done for today ..but one more photo with the required drink... which is coffee for me today ♥♥
The garden is pretty much done for the year. I've picked the last tomatoes and pulled the plants out of the straw bales. I'm mulching down some flower beds and the spot where I'm going to plant garlic this week with the straw that's left. It's really not much like straw at all now. It has totally decomposed in the center is a rich black compost with straw around the edges.
When I cleaned up the butterfly tote I would dump the caterpillar waste into my miniature yellow rose plant. It was struggling from so much rain this summer. Well it definitely liked the caterpillar "POOP" :) It just keeps on blooming.
