Some woodland colour….

Hi everyone! I would like to welcome Sheila as my newest follower - you can find her blog here.

I have been playing in my journal, although I have been quite busy on something you will see very soon. Sometimes I need the break to set me going again, this was one of those occasions.
 I used spray inks for the background and once again raided my scraps and leftovers from previous projects. The brown paper is from a chocolate box. The scalloped circle was cut from some freebie papers I'm not too keen on and I stamped the tree rather randomly onto it.

This is of course my latest entry to Art Journal Journey for the 'If You Go Down To The Woods' theme. There's still just under two weeks left to play along.

Thanks for looking, Chris.

I feel bad that I haven't joined you yet at AJJ. It makes me sad, because I've been SOOOOOOOOOOOOO busy. This latest entry of yours is incredible. I am all about recycling, and to recycle some paper you don't like makes my heart sing. This is a beautiful entry.

Thanks for the welcome and mention, Chris. I hope to have many visits here.
I was looking at your lovely woodland picture and thinking about how interestingly it was made, then read your description below and it became even more interesting.
