Weekend art journal and a Viking girl :)

Its Saturday AGAIN :)...busy busy!  Baby son is back at college :(  and time is flying once again.  Why do they drive you nuts at home then you miss them like crazy when they leave??..    Thinking of the last days of summer I made this art journal page in my little book.
Okay...so this was my first attempt with my watercolors!  I had these purple flowers floating around in my head and I just fenced them in with a black sharpie.  The bigger flowers were  hand cut from some painty scraps.  I used Julie Balzers' cloud stencil, some gesso thru sequin waste and some magz cut-outs.  The sun is ofcourse "sun design" image from Stampotique.  I am adding this to: Art journal everyday, and Artists in blogland.
  Next is my "Viking girl" tag (image from Roc Nicholas) .  She was paper pieced, colored with copics and put on an inked up tag.  I have also used "sun design" and "squiggle arms".  Inks are Dylusions and Adirondack color wash sprays. Did a little sewing to finish it up!  TFL and hope you are enjoying a pleasant weekend....

There's such a wonderful sense of vibrancy and aliveness in these terrific pieces. Love the bubble wrap stamping - that's always such a super fun technique!

Love your tag and journal page. I just bought that cloud stencil--I like how you used it as well as the watercolored flowers. That's a technique I'd like to try more often!
