Hello everyone and a happy weekend to you. Nice to have you drop by today and thank you for your visit.
Today is going to be a crafting and sport watching day as it is cold and keeps trying to rain--not really doing much yet but I would rather stay in a keep warm and dry.
At Art Journal Journey the theme is Architecture and a little while ago Valerie posted some wonderful photographs of AKKO here on her blog. I saved one of them and admired it so much I wanted to have a go at painting it.
This was how I started out with a few colours of acrylic mixes
This is my finished page with a Marco Polo quote. I could never compete with the wonderful photograph that Valerie took but I did enjoy having a go.
At City Crafter's Challenge Blog you are asked to add some wood, This was a chance to get out my wooden emblishments and enjoy the smell of burnt wood that is still there in the box when I open it even though the emblies are a couple of years old as the company closed down that used to make them.
I used Distressed inks and charcoal pencil for the background and stuck on the wooden emblies and also a little piece of wood that I had used on another project and it had burlap stuck to it.
Have a great day
Love Chrissie xx
