Mollie the Scarecrow

Can you imagine what stories a Scarecrow might have to tell.
They see birds trying to eat the seeds,  night turn to day and sun    turn to rain ,
 when  all the time  they hope the summer sun will shine
 and make the crops they are guarding grow.
Mollie my scarecrow, is watching over a field of flowers.

Its a mixed media style page from me, using a coloured in  page.
A journal page, watercoloured using  a piece of cardboard to  to spread the paint, I then added a napkin to give a bit of texture.
There is a bit of stecilling as well down the sides.

I am joining the folk over at
are hosting this months theme....Summer Love.

Thank you for calling in to see me today,
we are on our travels again in the caravan, internet is often not available,
 I will be round to visit as soon as I can.

  2. What a wonderful, cheery journal page. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  3. She's a pretty scarecrow! And what a wonderful job to have watching over a field of flowers.

  4. I always love it when you tell a story with your art. This summer story is fabulous. It never occurred to me that a scarecrow might have a summertime story. Something I didn't consider, yet filled with a beautiful summertime story and in a field of flowers, to boot. It's a great AJJ entry, dear Yvonne, and one told with lovely art, too. I like how you combined the coloring image with the napkin for a lovely outcome. Thanks for sharing it at Art Journal Journey.
