Taking time

 Hi everyone, I'm here with another page for Art Journal Journey.I love  Erika's new theme - 'Lets Face It' 

There's been a lot going on here but I finally found some time to play!

At the moment we are waiting for the boiler man to come - it's only for a service but, as usual the only times we were given were a.m. or p.m.!

I started this page yesterday when we had a little bit of sun. It soon turned to rain and a day so grey that the photos looked dreadful.

It is brighter this morning, but with snow forecast, I took my photo as soon as I could.

I had a mop up page where I had spritzed a stencil I had been using.I added some colours with Dina Wakley's Scribble sticks 

I used some Dina Collage tissue and Media collective paper and added some pen marks, spatters and a circle I found in my circle bag with just the right colours(I think it was cut from a piece of under paper)

Wishing everyone a great weekend.

Thanks for looking, Chris

We haven't had much sun this past week and today we have snow also. Winter is definitely here, isn't it? And I love your latest page with blues and greens. That face is a little bit mysterious but the heart you added makes it a good mysterious. Thanks so much for sharing this page Chris. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Hugs-Erika

I love the time range you get for services. Your technician will arrive between now and October. Hope you don't have to hang around all day. Your page is lovely with a definite Winter feel. It's snowing outside my window and hopefully will stop soon. Enjoy your day

Hope you got the boiler sorted out. This is a fantastic page, I like using mop up pages as a starting point, the collage tissue lady looks beautiful.
Super inspiration for the AJJ Theme.

As I'm sure you know by now, Sorry I'm late visiting. I've had no internet or phone since Monday, but stopped by to say I hope the boiler man has been there by now! This is a stunning page, I love the colors you used, too. Thanks for this entry at AJJ using Erika's theme, dear friend.

I am later than late and am so sorry for taking so long to visit this post. I never seem to get mop up pages, but I sure love yours. That is a wonderful entry and I like how you used the background to your advantage. Thanks for this great AJJ entry using Erika's theme.
