Immersion

Time for some journal love! I'm working on a few ideas and projects but it's too early to fill you all in yet, so in the mean time here's a journal page. It must be spring fever or some such thing but colour seems to be taking over everywhere here including my journal pages, and so it's time to soak it all up.


Immerse yourself...






I think I'm tempted!

Are you?





I think it just may beset me too!





Sound advice that!





As I said, a colour fixation at the moment. It's everywhere here, an absolute riot of colour and true spring weather at least for a little bit until the heat of Summer arrives. Now I know for many of you things are cooling down, so I thought I'd share a little of life's colour around to warm your artistic hearts!

The butterfly pic is a photograph and I have painted out the background just leaving the butterfly in all his glory. Isn't it beautiful!
All that fragile beauty gone in such a short space of time.
As to the rest, watercolours, ink, lace scraps, acrylic, text and mat medium and natures inspiration, the best bit of all!
Have a colourful day!

Oh i do love these colours, Kim! You are just such an inspiration...I can smell the flowers of Spring and feel its warm breath upon my cheek. I only wish we could get a taste of it here in NZ. We're still going through a real cold snap, although today (Bathurst day) has brightened up!
