Discover.. Flowers

Hello creative friends, 

How are you..?? 

Sharing a journal page today which I started just before 
Spring first sprung but never got round to completing..

No how to do's or explanations just close up's of those
Stamperia moulded pastes, stencils and rice papers..

Fuschia is not really my colour but I couldn't help paint those 
moulded roses to match those upon the rice paper background.

I love how the perched bird comes to life when painted, 
as if she's stopped to take in their sweet flowery aroma..

The stenciled word *Discover trimmed with buttons 
and lace sits above hand painted white fluffy clouds.

a keyword as birdsong amplifies whilst air traffic takes a break. 

We've all had more time to discover things of new and old 
while keeping our family, friends and neighbours safe...

Wishing you all a a super weekend.
Take care everyone. 

Creative wishes
Tracey xx

  8. Oh my- this is gorgeous Tracey!! I love all the texture, and that brick wall is fabulous! You're right about that birdy- he sure does look like he just flew in to check things out;) Happy PPF and happy weekend too!

  9. Hi, Tracey - thank you for commenting on my blog (Paper Panacea). You are an amazing artist! You definitely have a wonderful eye for replicating the beauty in nature. I look forward to visiting your blog again to be inspired by your fabulous creations.

  10. WOW! This is absolutely beautiful, Tracey! I love everything about it! Hope all is well with you! HUGS!

  11. A beautiful tribute to spring! Happy PPF

  12. Lovely journal pages. And we can discover new ways of enjoying life locked in and becoming productive. Stay safe. Thanks for fropping by my blig today


  13. Ooh, so much detail and texture, Tracey - this is gorgeous. Love your wall and the birds are amazing. It's good to use a colour you don't often use - all colours matter, lol. Mirroring the rice paper is a great touch and makes a difference. I LOVE your clouds! All your additions look almost metallic. This looks like a labour of love. Glad you were able to complete it, even if it took a while. That's the best thing about the isolation - the enforced art time ;-) I'm not complaining about that - in fact, I'd love another couple of hours a day to do more!
    Stay safe and play more. Your art is always such a delight to see.
    God bless

  14. A beautifully created journal spread. A lovely, peaceful scene with wonderful textures and pretty colours.
    Thank you for joining in with our May challenge "Anything Mixed Media Goes" at Creative Artiste Mixed Media. Good luck x

  15. I have to admit, I found it hard to tear my eyes away from that stunning wall and the little bird looks so happy sitting on those gorgeous dimensional roses. You have balanced the page beautifully with the elements on the left hand side, the buttons are such a lovely touch, along with the pretty lace. You have created such a wonderful scene, one I wish I could see in real life... I hope you have a lovely and safe bank holiday weekend (whatever that is these days - lol). Hugs, Anne xxx

  16. What a SUPER spread, Tracey! It is full of gorgeous details! And such a great scene! Thank you so much for joining my challenge at AJJ! Kisses, my friend.

  23. Tracey your piece is just stunning. I can reach in and feel the texture of the bricks. The flower is wonderful. I am not a pink girl but I do like Fuchsia or as I call it Tropical Berry. LOL Have a great weekend.

  24. What a stunning creation Tracey. It is so textural, pretty and creative. I loved how the bird stopped by and I am so glad I did too.....This would brighten anybody's day....Amazing x.

  25. I'm in catch up mode tonight Tracey. I am glad I got by to see this page. Wow. It is beautiful and a wonderful spring page. I like the fuschia for these roses. It is bold and a strong color. The whole page wants me to go into the garden and enjoy a beautiful day. Thanks for joining Mia's challenge and joining us at Aart Journal Journey. Hugs-Erika

  26. A real stunning work of art here my friend. Thanks re Monte, he is loved and will be a survivor...
    The new steampunk challenge is blog, not facebook. We are having a blog hop where some have only facebook or instagram but most have blogs. The main challenge starts in September on the blog so I am not sure why the link took you to facebook...was it on my link? Maybe I put the wrong one up..

  27. Hi again lovely, I see why you thought the original link was going to facebook, it is in a way but has a link to detour to the challenge blog. Have changed it so as to not add confusion. Look forward for when it is opened in September and your awesome makes entering into it...big hugs.xx

  28. So beautiful, love the colours and textures. Had souch a lovely feel to it.

  29. A stunning spread Tracey, I love the bird!
    Take care of yourself xxx

  30. I'm sorry I'm late and even worse, Blogger refused to publish my comment due to a "security" reason. I'm going to try again after this.

  31. Since my last comment published, I'll try to remember what I wrote. This is both beautiful and well done. I love how dimensional it is. It's also great that your words fit so beautifully with the wonderful photos you shared. I just wanted to reach up and feel the texture you created. It's a real gem and nicely colored, too. Thanks for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey using Mia's theme.

  32. Oh Tracey this is fabulous! I love fuscia but it's not for everyone is it. Your brick wall is gorgeous, and those little flowers growing up it - just wonderful! Thank you so much for your visit to my blog and your very kind words. Take care and have a very happy week, Sue xx

  33. I love your wild garden. Reminds me of a place I visited earlier but is to far to visit now as we are not allowed to travel to far.
    Thanks for reminding me. Take care!

  34. What a piece of art. Really beautiful!
