A Red Squirrel Visitor

 

Hello, I hope all is well with you today, we are lucky to still be having some sunny days here. I have missed  going to the local forest this year, especially now as Autumn will soon be arriving. Sadly the second wave of Covid has already started so I continue to stay home, as I have since March. 

I can’t remember the last time I saw a Red Squirrel as they are sadly so rare in the UK now. My sister sees them in the Lake District, but we don’t have any in London. Nether the less I have one visiting me today by the magic of crafting. I had a lot of fun making him, and giving him a lovely bushy tail. I have jotted down a few details on how I made this Autumn Tag on the Calico Craft Parts Blog. I hope you can visit.

Please stay safe, this virus is sadly not going away any time soon. Look after yourselves.

Thank you for visiting, hugs xx

Nemesis


I am not sure I can call this an art journal page, as it is not actually in a journal as my journal is full! So  I will just call it a mixed media page! I have just purchased a Jane Davenport journal with watercolour pages, so I am looking forward to that arriving.



I started by browsing images of Nemesis, and then drew a very rough sketch.I used Watercolours to add some quick colour, and added megaflakes to the sword and scales of justice.



I stamped and heat embossed various branches on my background paper. I then used a wooden window stamp and stamped it twice. I should use my wooden stamps more often than I do. I have them all in a art bin and I don’t retrieve them very often.

I then Die Cut  lots of  leaves, and also coloured them with watercolours and added a dash of gold and copper megaflakes here and there to add some Autumn shine.i adhered them to the picture along with some natural elements from nature.

Thank you for visiting today, and many thanks, for all of the kind and supportive messages I have been receiving xx

I would like to share Nemesis with the following challenges.
