Hi everyone, I'm at the 'I can't believe how poorly I must have been because I feel SO much better now' stage! Thank you for all your good wishes.
I have a journal page for Sheila's 'A Single Flower' theme at Art Journal Journey. and my first too late
My woolly brain forgot to post this on St Patricks Day.
The background was made with some spraying with Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays, which I also persuaded to drip down the page. I'm still getting used to these but I like them a lot and will be buying more!
I used ink through some Aall and Create and Dina Wakley stencils and I used black and white pens to draw some circles and scribble.
I stamped and fussy cut a Brigit Koopsen tulip, some Dina leaves and the scribbly bird.
The 'Irish Blessing' tissue quote is from a Dina set of tissue papers.
I also made a 'Things With Wings' tag for Tag Tuesday - but I see I am too late!(confusing as it's only 8.00pm on Monday here!)I used an old Elusive Images stamp onto my tag and then stamped, coloured and fussy cut the butterfly again to get a flying butterfly
You may have seen that we managed to visit Dunham Massey - we still have to book own advance on line - not quiet the same as getting up on a nice day and saying 'Where shall we go?' but I think this is the way it will be for a while yet! It is one of the most local to where we live and it was great to get out and have a walk in the fresh air rather than around the roads near the Motorway.We could see the daffodils in the gardens as we walked up to the gate
There really are hundreds throughout the gardens
I was pleased to see that one or two snowdrops were still flowering just a shame to be too late to see them all
Aconites or Celandines - not sure what to call theseI didn't expect to see Tulips in bloom...but there was......just one!
Mystified by the planting pattern hereI am always happy to see Pussy willowPhoto bombing hubby!This poor tree seems to have had a bad Winter
You might remember seeing this field flooded - it looks as though the banks have been widened.
The cafe was open for takeaway coffee but we're sticking with homemade coffee from our flask at the moment - so I'll join Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday with our view in the carpark and our coffee cups from home.
I think you can guess the owl mug is hubby's
I am also going to be arriving too late at some of your T posts from last week, I do apologise but time just ran out!
Thanks for looking, Chris
