Journey of discovery

I wonder where today's journey of discovery will take me.
Well certainly France and maybe a bit of culture in Italy.
This page had the statues and base layer added in my Craft Studio program.

This is how the page began.

 A sprayed background, a bit of random stamping and  stencil. Hot colours for me to use, but they were to hand and already mixed.

More stamping, a photo taken,
 then,  off to have more added via the computer.
But first of all the hands needed a good scrub to remove the paint.
One of the joys of mixed media crafting for me.

This is my second page for this months theme at
where the theme is Journeys.

Thank you for calling to see me today I always appreciate the comments you leave.

Added images were  from Mischief Circus.
......  Dezinaworld and  my own base layers.

  19. Fabulous Yvonne! I love those fiery colours and I can only image how your hands looked...I have often thought of snapping a pic of the messy situations I get into!! tee hee. Happy Mother's Day! hugs :)

  20. A lovely warm page, Yvonne, and I enjoyed seeing the steps. I think the first page was good enough on its own, but I like how you progressed it too. The old too-good-to-use conundrum!

  21. A truly beautiful hybrid piece! You have created the perfect combination here with such lovely colours! Hugs, Chrisx
