Just journalling...

Well there's been no stitching happening this past week.... most unusual in my household of late. I have been doing quite a bit in my journal though, so thought I would share some of my pages with you. Below is an Angel I painted with acrylics (inspired by the art of the lovely Lynne Hoppe). As you can see by the page on the left, I am still enjoying doing my 10 minute collages (a la Shelley Klammer). I just love these quick little collages, they are a great start to the day.
Also from Lynne blog one of her lovely quotes that I had to include in my journal. I loved this painting by Kristin Vestgard titled "sisters", thanks Carolyn for the link to her wonderful art.

Another of my 10 minute collages.



And... another. Birds seem to be featuring quite a lot lately????
I hope you are all having a wonderful week and this milder weather Spring/Autumn is conducive to your creativity.
