A memory from our walk to the Standing Stone for breakfast.
Nothing beats spending time with Mitchell. We saw Autumn straggling cheery street roses. I don’t know how they survive in poor light under the trees!
I love my Nostalgie Journal, but I have to stop pushing it with many-layered juicy washes… It is 90 lbs not 200 lbs! Still, it takes a LOT of water. What it doesn’t like too much is when the many layers have a Primatek base. I think I saved it tho…
when backgrounds go splotchy make more splotches, deliberately!

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
She’s a beauty!
Thanks Carol! Nostalgie takes a shocking amount of wet — and I keep pushing it!
So lovely. Roses challenge me in every way. Drawing. Painting. Cakes. 😩
you might try printing a photo and drawing the petals on the photo.. study the way they sit… they are quite predictable. then change it up!
