It's raining in the woods…..and a walk!

Just a quick word before I show you my latest entry for Art Journal Journey. I have really enjoyed my time as host so far and must say the entries have been wonderful, and such a great variety of ideas - you can see them all here. I do hope you will join in with the fun!

The theme is 'If you go down to the woods' and this time I have a rainy scene to show you
 I used Neocolours IIs to create the base then sprayed with (I think) Perfect Pearls. I inked up a new Inkylicious birds on branches stamp and then added some more birds. I spattered some Brushed Pewter Distress Stain with a brush to make raindrops then added the sentiment that I have had for ages but not used. 

We went for a walk today along the river bank - a little breezy but lovely and sunny! We went in a different direction than usual - a longer walk but lots to see!!

Past one of the golf courses

Heading for the bridge by the white building in the distance
Getting closer….just around the bend now...
…and over to the other side for the walk back…which I will show you another day!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Fabulous page Chris, love the tree full of birds!! Wonderful photos, it's just so beautiful where you live! I've just found out there's a small river nearby. Too far to walk, but I plan on taking a Sunday trip there, soon as it warms up! hugs :)

Gorgeous journal page Chis - it really caught my breath and I love the sentiment on it.
I always enjoy "our" walks!
Now let's have a cup of tea or a pint or two. I am not particular!

Love those ethereal colours on your journal page, it has a lovely misty quality about it which sets me off dreaming.
Thanks for the walk, looks so beautiful - glad the weather was kind. Hope you are feeling much better and well on the way to full recovery.

I adore the new bird stamp AND rainbows. I also was super impressed with your walk. No wonder you have lost all that weight.

Your page really captures the look of a rainbow breaking through a clouded sky - great stuff. And wonderful pictures from your wanderings again - looks like you've had some lovely weather.
