Snails pace.

I am nearly frightened to say 'hello' from ' sunny', Yorkshire.  We had an amazing weekend with the family enjoying the first two days of the Tour de France.  For those of you who know of  our recent  caravan adventures, not a bit of mud in sight. We are enjoying our away time, no chores, just relaxing and going  with the flow.  Once again I have packed my journal, with my small take away stash and have enjoyed  getting inky or should I say painty.

Art Journal Journey  this month and the theme is --- Flower Power

The page is coloured with acrylic paints.
Some stamped flower images [Joffy from Paper Astsy] these were water coloured.
A little snail with his hat on hiding in the flower border. I tried to lighten and enlarge  this  cropped piece  so you could spot him, sorry it looks a bit blurred.
The flowers in the foreground were cut from a printed sheet.

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Your comments are always appreciated.
