Freda's view from her window for AJJ

Another birds eye view  in my journal page today
This time its Freda's  view  from her high rise window.
She is off to visit friends in the city and taking them a bunch of flowers.
She likes to visit with friends, they can gossip for hours,  about old times.
 They will talk about  their families  and  catch up on  allthe latest news.

This is how the page began,  a mop up base, I have many of these in my journal.
Next some stencils using Distress ink-Abandoned coral.
The stamps and stencils are all  from Tim Holtz.

Next some texture, for this I mixed some Golden glass bead gel with some acrylic paint and another Tim Holtz stencil.
As it was drying out I took the photo into my computer program [MCS] 
and had a bit of a digital play.
The result was the first photo I posted.

Another page going off to
where the theme is Through my Window.

Thank you for calling by to see what I have been making today,
 your comments are always appreciated
 Forgive me if I don't get to visit you all  regularly for  a short while.
 We are enjoying our last break away in the caravan, before the  start of winter.
I prefer the views from my window, autumn colours and woodland,
 Freda is welcome to her city views.
