Creative Artiste Anything Mixed Media Goes ~ Challenge #97

Best wishes this September to you all 

and the start of a new Creative Artiste Monthly Challenge

 *Anything Mixed Media Goes Challenge #97*

This month my journal page is created with a collage and 
stencil paste painted background, stamped Fuchsia Flowers, 
coloured with ink and pencil, cut and layered for a 3-D effect, 
surrounded by an abundance of luscious green leaves.

They remind me of childhood Summers and my Grandfathers cottage 
garden full of Huge Roses, Hydrangea and Fuchsia bushes filled with 
flowers like tiny ballerina's dancing and twirling in the breeze...

My own Fuchsia's are but a shadow compared to those of my 
late Grandfather but through the troubled weather this year 
they have still managed to bloom and produce fruit..

As Natures season of bounty is now upon us I will leave these edible 
Fuchsia berries to the birds and foragers that frequent my tiny garden..

Pop along HERE to see what the DT have created to inspire you.. 
we invite creatives to mix up your media and share your Creations 

Stay safe and Creative

Creative Artiste #96 ~ Anything Mixed Media Goes

Hello everyone 

a new month means the start of a new challenge @ 

This August I share a journal page using part of an illustration 
collaged from a colouring book altered to create a wider scene.

Using pencil, pen and paint, texture paste, die cut wild flowers,
eyelet portholes and art stone pebbles and doodles line the towpath.

This was a scene relished in real time last month given a 
few days respite from care duties... the first in many years.. 

Let me take you on a brief journey and share life stuff that 
inspired Augusts journal page with a handful of pictures..

Taking to the water by canal boat 2 miles per hour..

hidden from wifi connections, cuddled by nature..

Visitors stopping by for breakfast.. lunch and tea 😁

Freya taking in the scenery..

a herd of horses run free on the horizon..

always only a short journey away from home...

It felt like a million miles away.. 

this really is life slowed down ...

I hope you can take a moment to share what inspires you this month 
and come and share your mixed media creations with us HERE

Wishing you all a safe, relaxing month ahead 
Creative Hugs

This month I share a Journal page full of found desk scraps, 
washi tape, paint splodges and doodles all added whenever a chink 
of creative light appeared during these relentless busy days.

Embroidered flower patch, velvet ribbon and twisted beaded wire.

Ephemera, lace & stitched remnants brought together with a big brass button.

This is my *Happy Place* ...
