"I Miss My Summer Garden"

Looks like it's going to be a nice sunny day today. We had a frost last night though so it did get cold. The tops of all the cars are white which is a sure sign of a heavy frost. I'm taking my sister-in-law Christmas shopping today. I don't usually take her and the wheelchair on my own but we can manage for once...unless Joe decides to come and disappear while we shop! That could happen.

This week's art journal page challenge over at Stamping Bella was to do a collage. I haven't done much of that but there is no time like now to learn new things so I went for it. This is not my favorite piece but we all have to start somewhere so why not share the failures along with the ones we like. Well, this is not totally a failure, just not my favorite.

The background is once again stenciled, patterned wall paper that was painted over in spots, ink and paint. The pictures all came from old Birds and Blooms magazines. The sentiment was printed out on my computer and then coloured in. And I do miss my summer garden. So blah out there right now.

I think your collage has come out really well. There's lots of depth and shading to it which I find hard to do. Here's to capturing your summer garden on paper!
