Quackers for AJJ

I am.... Out and About......

 ....... taking a walk through a farmyard.
Its a noisy place with the ducks and the other farmyard birds are in full voice today.
I think  that old mother hen is trying to quieten them down a bit.
For me I  don't mind  these country sounds, but at one of the  local farm,  the  Geese are quite fond of chasing folk through the farmyard and they do make loads of noise.

The idea for this page came from this illustration for February
 in  the kitchen calendar .

The page started off with splashed watercolour and Brusho background and pieces from a napkin.

After photos were taken, I was able to add the words and other images in my digital program.
The resulting hybrid page  at the top.

I have to say I  quite like this original page as well.
Maybe  birds like this could be seen in a warmer country than mine .

Thank you for stopping by, you are welcome and the comments you leave for me are always appreciated


  1. Super page. Great depth. I would love some ducks. A friend of our has some geese for security because they make such a noise! lol!

  2. Adorable - the hybrid combinatioan as well as the original background you have created !
    Yes those hummingbirds make us dreaming of warmer areas - but spring will come soon, even here - o.k. we had frost and icy grass and ways this morning again, but spring is on it' way for sure....
    You are such an inspiring hostess Yvonne! Thank you so much.
    I am quite busy with my family and the house at the moment, so I have not so much time for creating pages..hope I will come up with some more ideas and can steal me the time to make some more out and about pages.

  14. Very cute page, I've always loved ducks, even if they are loud at times. Beautiful base page too.

  15. I agree - I love the original page - gorgeous bold colours, and then just expanding into the white space. Love your quackers and how you've managed to get them in amongst the sunflowers.
