Where would I like to be?

Hi everyone, the answer to the question  is in a bluebell wood! Of all the flowers that can be found in woodlands the bluebell is my favourite - Hubby gets used to me asking to stop when we pass one, although I do have my favourites that I like to visit(I'll be sure to show you later in the year!).

My journal page today started by some spritzing and adding Brushos in strips of green brown, blue and green.
I then did some rough outlines using a Stabilo Mark it all pencil and used a combination of Neocolour IIs and Inktense pencils to colour the trees, flowers and grass.
I'm not sure if Little Red Riding Hood is there picking bluebells for Grandma or whether it's a trick of the Brushos - I'll let you decide!

The quote is from a Stampman set I have had for ages but has such lovely quotes and images.

This is the latest of my entries as host at Art Journal Journey with my choice of theme -"If You Go Down To The Woods".

I hope to post one more tomorrow but would like to Thank everyone for your support and also to Valerie and Susi for asking me! I have had wonderful time seeing all the fabulous and varied entries and the month has whizzed by!

There is still the rest of today and tomorrow if you would like to join in! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

this is a fabulous way to round off your month at AJJ (unless you do another one) bluebells are my favourite too, hope to see them at Kew before too much longer.

Really pretty Chris. You caught the flowers in such a beautiful abstract way. It was a great challenge this month at AJJ- it was a good topic. Hugs-Erika

A lovely page Chris and I'm sure that's little Red Riding Hood's Cape. No doubt visiting Granny with an arm full of bluebells.

I've never seen a bluebell, but I think Patty and her hubby go to someplace every year to see them. I don't think they grow in my part of the country. Just thought you might like to know.

Personally, that looks like Little Red Riding Hood hiding in the trees or returning to the forest. I know it's a beautiful journal page!

This is beautiful, I can feel the woods, smell the fresh green and those delightful bluebells make me want to run and play in that beautiful field by the woods!

Totally caught my eye... I just planted bluebells for the first time at this house (we've been here for about 10 years), but bluebells have been a fave since childhood! :) Lovely artwork.
