somewhere out there …

inspired by the words of Lord Byron (1788-1824)

“Oh! darkly, deeply, beautifully blue, As someone somewhere sings about the sky”

this is the third of my blue spreads for my December Art Journal … I had no idea when I began this journal on 1 December just how much I would enjoy and be driven to create it in … heartfelt thanks go out to Linda and Nathalie for inspiring me to begin

fourteen spreads completed with more pages to fill

the image on the left hand side is from a flyer that arrived in the mail advertising a ballet … white painted through a plastic doily makes her “halo” (thanks again Lynn) … Golden’s paints work so nicely on these simple lined journal pages (many thanks to Julie for making me much braver with a paintbrush) … the bit of glimmer at the bottom is also Golden’s … small Pearl Mica Flakes

somewhere-out-there

the angel on the right is from a vintage Swedish postcard … it was a nice challenge mixing shades of blue to blend the postcard into the page … the snowflakes are from Martha Stewart … the white writing is a Sharpie Poster Paint marker

thank you to all who have followed my journal pages thus far and for your kind words and observations, especially in such a busy month as this …. I would like to share the Swedish Postcard with you … here is the FREE DOWNLOAD for your personal use


*ENJOY * ENJOY *
