Frank and Ernest

A mixed media page today, using stamps, stencils, modeling paste , paints and finally a few digital additions.
I have called my Quirky Bird, ' Frank'.
He lives in one of London's parks and this view from his tree home,  looks an enticing, fun, destination.
He is asking his friends if they fancy a night out,
 especially Ernest the parrot who is a very good talker in mixed company.

This is the unaltered page, with the quote  uncovered--
Life was meant for a great adventure.
I hope Frank had a good night out.

I will be joining the fun at
where the current theme is Through my Window

the theme is Landscape.
Rosie, I hope you don't mind me using the same  bird , it just seemed to go so well on my page.
Your page was inspiring.

Thank you for all the comments you leave for me, I appreciate them all.


  1. This page is terrific Yvonne! Wow!
    Love the colors and the whole concept here!
