Is anyone else looking forward to Spring and walking in woods that are springing to life? We went for a walk yesterday at Styall - on our way to shop!!
It was great to see the tips of bulbs peeping through! A true promise of Spring! Styall's gardens look lovely any time of year!
These wooden deer have been installed on one of the top fields!
This plant is competing with the Christmas decorations in the greenhouse!
The air plants seem to have transformed themselves into decorations too!
I have never taken the cottage from this angle before!
The Bollin river was in full flow
This is the ice house at the top of the weir!
I love seeing lichen - a sign of clean air!
This definitely isn't living any more!
We don't often pass this old spindle now that there is a new carpark but we decided to walk up the old path.
My page was started with paint, crackle paste and gold and white pens.
The stamp is a Crafty Individuals one(CL 487) which is stamped randomly and I then picked out two phrases I liked and stamped them onto some gelli printed paper.
I added some French text which has two of my favourite places mentioned - Lincoln, my home town and Paris which....well, you know, I love to visit as often as I can!!!
I stamped the leaves from the stamp onto the margins of the book paper. Finally I added pine needle DI to the page and the crackle leaves.
This is another entry for Art Journal Journey where Elizabeth has been an excellent host all month with her 'My favourite season or 'tis the season' theme!
I may just squeeze in another but if I don't - Thanks Elizabeth for choosing such a great theme, for which I had so many ideas but not enough time!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
