Hi everyone, I hadn't intended having so long between posts but having spent a lot of time prepping and then having a day with my craft group (plus an escape for a walk) I'm way behind with quite a lot of things.
I have made a page for Valerie's 'When One Door Closes, Another Opens' theme at Art Journal Journey.
As you may have spotted, it is in one of my smallest journals - I put an ink pad at the side so you can see how small it is.
The page had already been started - with some Paper Artsy Infusion splashed deli paper so I added some text stamping, and part of a Paper Artsy stamp by Sara Naumann.
The door is by Seven Gypsies I think and I found a perfect snippet from an old book to add to the page.
We decided to go out in the sunshine to Fletcher Moss Park on Thursday and as it was nearly lunchtime we had a pulled pork and apple roll from the outdoor cafe while sitting on a sunny bench.
There was a frost in the morning and lots of puddles were iced over.
The real treat came afterwards though - as we walked through the garden we came to an area by the pond that had lots of fallen leaves on it. At first I saw a Jay pecking amongst the leaves, then two, then altogether five were taking turns at coming down to the ground, they only seem to eat alone or in twos though.
We walked to The Parsonage through the wood -it was a bit muddy and some trees had been blown down - including this one that we had to step over.
Mistletoe growing on one of the branches - we saw several more bunches but all very high up
My friend who told me she had been there in the morning watched a Kingfisher here.
