After a few glorious days away, I'm back home although not altogether willingly it has to be said :-) We weren't too far away from home but it felt like a million miles away. The sun shone, the children were happy and content, and the countryside was breathtaking. I even managed to squeeze in a little art time for me and have been very happy creating splashy messy backgrounds in my moleskine. Here's the first of several pages I finished, and a close up of 'Marci', the stamp I used by Stampotique.
I've got quite a few art journal pages to share but they need a little tweaking still. It doesn't matter how much art stuff you manage to squeeze in the car you never have quite what you need.
Thanks so much for all your wonderful comments during my absence, I read and appreciate every single comment :-) Some of you wanted to know if the photo in the previous post was me. Yup! That's me alright! That was taken whilst on holiday in exactly the same place last year (just outside of Kendal in the Lake District) relaxing, sipping a glass of wine whilst art journaling. What more could a girl ask for?!
Here's a few holiday pics from the last few days. See the little white cottage on the hillside? That's where we have been staying. Surrounded by hills, rivers, streams, sunshine, and a few sheep. Bliss!
Here's an early morning view looking the other way down the valley:
Love this old weathered sign with the dramatic hills in the background:
A self-portrait LOL!
Some VERY new lambs (ooh it makes me glad to be a vegetarian):
I think spring has finally sprung, better late than never:
We were surrounded by mountain streams which has kept my children very occupied indeed and they were delighted to find this little fella (a fresh water crayfish) lurking under the rocks:
And finally a family walk in the hills. Ahh :-)
Now, must go and do some of the 57 loads of laundry that awaits me! Byeeeeeeee
