Whilst I was away.....I was totally bored without my internet...but I did find a bit of a pasttime taking some photos of my backyard....if you want to call it that....but I will tell you one thing...there are many beautiful things to see while relaxing on my back porch!! These first few photos were taken one very foggy morning! Yes! there is even beauty in dense fog! This first photo is one of my favorites...
This one I could stare at for hours!!! I really think photos would be much more fun to take without the annoying power lines running through them! LOL And I haven't a clue how to edit them....no I don't use photoshop...and again...wouldn't have a clue how to use it LOL I am a simple person who likes simplicity in things...I could live without t.v. ....I hear ya....No I cannot live without my computer! LOL Though sometimes it is much more a pain than it is worth and these last few weeks without interent and a my way to connect with the world...drove me absolutely mad!!! It took two weeks to get someone out here to set us back up! And I think by the photos you can understand why...cuz we live way out in the boonies! lol The good thing that happened out of all this...is that I have a new neighbor And a new friend! I am thinking this kind of friendship could be a lifelong one!! We are having fun learning about each other and our little quirks (which as you know I have quite a few lol) Planning things together like spending Thanksgiving and Christmas together and sharing the meals that go along with them! What a blessing she is! I must have an angel in heaven to send me such a wonderful gift!
I suppose you want to see some art huh?? I did do a bit of art while away in my art journal....
These photos were taken on my back porch! I thought the aged boards were a great place to take photos of my journal!! OHhhhhh you should be here at 7:30 am...to watch the deer come down to feed on apples and grass in the pasture and drink from the pond behind our home!! Beautiful...I must remember to take my camera out in the morning with my coffee in tow!!
This has got to be my favorite art journal entry in my black white and red journal!! So what if there is blue in it!!! I think she is beautiful...I love the way watercolor pencils just flow....I have not experimented with them so much...but I may use them more often now!!! ;O)
Ok so this photo didn't really capture the journal entry well....The photo is actually an old postcard and I am sorry I don't remember whom or where I may have gotten it! But it resides now in my journal behind an old envelope window (you know the plasticy noisey ones? that make that crinkley sound?) and then used packing tape to adhere it to my page!!! I was weird how I came about that tape....I was wishing that I had some of this kind of tape and some masking tape...and someone must of heard my thoughts...because in walked my hub who found both kinds of tape lurking in our garage!!! Now how cool is that!!? lol
I think I will save the rest of my pages for another post...I am still sending out invites to those who have inquired about the Collage Play with Crowabout!! I do so apologize for not being able to send them out sooner...but with no internet I was hopelessly at a loss! If you did not receive your invite...it is because I do not have your email addy! ***wink wink*** lol I will see if I can track those people down to see if I can find their addy!!!
I miss you all!!! Much love and hugs!!!
