Indian Summer

We haven't really "Indian Summer" weather just now - more the gloomy, cold and wet weather.
So I stay much more inside - what means enough Art Journal time  ---- so it is still GOOD weather  !

A quick spread on which I used blackboard foil . The birds were drawn on the backside of the foil and cut out. I could have masked the birds and do them with black color- but the foil was the cleaner way for me to come up with birds on the spread. With a white correction pen the birds were accentuated later and outlined with a watercolor pencil in magenta. Some washi tape and some stamping were added.

I forgot to add text - but as I realized this just now as I post this I think I can afford to let it go.

Mixed Tuesday - this and that!

 our new theme over at 
Try It On Tuesday

which means that
 no digis or shop bought embellishments are allowed.

I came up with a book jacket for my current journal. I sewed babywipes together , which I collected from different projects - as I wiped acrylic colours with them.
I ironed them and sewed four of them together into a book jacket- 
went on with some oilpastels to give a bit more definition which I sealed with some clear Gesso.
I then put on some white Gesso 
in a heavy layer in which I scratched the years and the title.
I finally sprinkled  some splashes with black ink and green acrylic ink and scratched here and there. 
Then I applied black indian ink into the scratched letters with a black Pentel brush pen.

 that's the complete  book jacket- I didn't do much on the backside (here the left side)
just a bit of white Gesso.

It fits the journal very well.

And for Valerie's AJJ theme Indian Summer I have another entry today.

Mixed Media style with some stamped motifs on tissue paper that were glued on with acrylic binder.

and to join TSFT this week I  show you my mixed tea drink to bring me over the day just now. 

Happy T-DAY, TIOT's and AJJ!
Thank you for visiting!
