Remember Summer

When Christmas is over I will be looking forward to summer. I do not like the snow and cold of winter. I love the sun and the garden. It would be great to think next year could be the year when we see a lot of sun it does happen every ten years so they say we are long overdue. Pictures of my town

Art Journal of My Holiday in the States

I have at last found time to take photos of my holiday art journal and post them. Its the first journal Ive done I started it at home with some painting and collaging then did the jounaling when resting in the hotels we stayed at along the way. I finished it off when I returned. The book I used was about 3.5" x 5" the paper was handmade which meant I had to watch the pens I used as some bled through to the next page. I mostly used gel pens with watercolour paint. I did enjoy doing this a record of a great time

I am now making a Christmas Journal

Near to Lafayette. We stayed at Bayou Cabins delightful place to stay.
The Swamp or Bayou St Martins Lake Breaux Bridge I did quite a few pages from here

These pages are all from New Orleans
