Its a Green day ... for AJJ

I was in  the mood to use shades of green today  to....
Colour in my world..... my theme choice at.....
 Art Journal Journey

I have no idea why I wanted to use green shades, but you will notice a bit of blue was also added.
Perhaps because  the view from my window today is blue skies and green fields, after a few grey days here..even the birds were singing this morning.

Another mixed media  page to share today, with only the words being computer generated.

These are the photos showing how this all began.
 A bit of fussy cutting of the coloured in,  bird.
The base layer is linen.
I was thrilled to get this journal book [Ranger] as a gift a while ago, it has a wonderful assortment of pages from  papers to materials.
Pieces of a torn napkin were added,
 stencils to add a bit of raised texture, watercolour paints and some highlights using gilding wax .
Not forgetting a bit of random stamping.

This was a fun page to create, I hope you are all having fun with colours this month,
 I am really enjoying seeing your colour  choices  over at Art journal journey.

Thank you for stopping by, your visit is always appreciated here.


  1. What a beautiful green inspired page! The images were made for each other, I would never of guessed that they were two separate pictures - amazing ๐Ÿ˜. I'm loving your new theme too, it's lovely to focus on colour with the grey skies we have been having of late, it makes me happy! Thank you and wishing you a lovely weekend Yvonne! J ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. I also thought of greens and blues today as I walked the dogs - we had obviously the same weather as you today . I love what you did here-this fantastic image is fabulous and fits your brilliant textured background-linen perfectly!This journal must be lovely to use!
