Just finished two more pages of ‘Things I love’ for the mingle and here they are.
You can zoom in on each one, here, if you like. The right hand page is darker than I’d have liked, but I like the contrast.
I’m not sure how much you can see of the pages behind but they’re both stencilled and sprayed and I used Dy’s colour washout technique on the page on the left, so that’s also been spritzed, so I can enter them for this week’s Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: spritz, spray or stencil.
If you’re one of my regular followers, you may remember me journalling about birds and wellies. I told my best friend in France (who’s Swiss) about this and look what arrived in the mail this week.
When I was there last year, I spent many enjoyable hours listening to the swallows, watching them feed their young and exercise their wings, ready for the long flight back to Africa. Cathy found this in the local Garden Centre and couldn’t resist sending him to me to persuade me to go back this year, but when my letter arrived, of course she had to make him a raincoat and give him a pair of wellies! He certainly made me giggle!
Here he is without raincoat.
And here he is ‘in situ’ in the STILL pouring rain!!
Welcome to the Great British Summer!
Hope the weather’s better where you are.
