If you stay with me here you may get a surprise!
The real reason for being here is my final page for showing at Art Journal Journey, although I confess it was originally started for my entry in the challenge at the Artistic Stamper, where the theme for October was 'Clocks'.
Started with some book page scraps stuck to the page and painted over with watered down paints, I then added the crackle clock and some random text and clock stamping - and stopped…
I have been so taken with the Autumn colours and we have been out and about quite a bit! (More photos straight after this post)
While sorting out some scraps I came across the little napkin house on the left and this small piece of corrugated card. The grand house image transfer was from and advert at the back of a free magazine, from here my idea came together. The Artistic Outpost watch reminded me of where I was brought up in the country!
I found an interesting fact about the average number of times a person moves in their lifetime - 8 it seems, I have moved 14 times since I was born, so then I thought about where I was happiest and it occurred to me that I have always been happy about where I lived for different reasons!
The Walt Whitman quote sums this up beautifully!
I am getting in(just in time!)
for the Artistic Stamper Challenge - Clocks
and for my last entry for Sheila's brilliant 'Architecture' challenge at Art Journal Journey
So, will you be out and about tonight or will 'Strictly' be a better bet?
Either way - I wish you a Strictly Happy Halloween with my two dancing skellies!
Thanks for looking, Chris
