Mrs Owl goes travelling

I wonder where this wise owl will be going  on her travels today.

This is an experimental page as wasn't sure what kind of colours would work on the material
As this is a material page in a mixed media journal I was using.  I went very slowly as I only had one chance to see what worked and for sure I wasn't about to bin  the page. 
First up some stencils ....... going well so far.
Vintage Photo distress ink, my all time favourite colour.
Yes that added some colour as did some streaks of blue inks, applied with my fingers .
Time to stop while things were going well.
So fussy cut out my coloured owl and she is good to go off on her travels.

Now as its summer and we do have birds who migrate in the summer months.
Many leave the UK for warmer climates and others arrive here from colder parts of the world.
I think birds,  have a love of summer especially when you hear their happy chirping and bird song..
So Mrs Owl will be off to see the folk at.......
  Art Journal Journey
and Bleubeard and Elizabeths theme of Summer Love
.........................even though she is a stay at home bird,
 she likes to visit different parts of the country in summer.

Thank you for calling in to see me today.
Like Mrs Owl we are on our travels, I hope I will still be able to call in and see you all.
