A weekend of Arting and Photos

I am still  unusually productive.. the mojo has moved in well and truly ... hopefully she decides to be a permanent resident here as I am loving going into my studio and getting messy with paint...and yes I get very messy.. I should start buying baby wipes in bulk I think as between using them for art wiping back paint from areas.. and cleaning my hands all the time I go through heaps in each session... (I know there is nothing wrong with painty hands.. but I hate pages sticking to me or transferring paint to where I dont it LOL)
Kilcunda and Inverloch

   I am still working on my journal that I started last trip... have added photos to it from past trips....which is were the "weekend of arting and photo's" come it .. .we went away last weekend for a road trip down an iconic aussie road .. our goal was to 'do' the road, take pics and art at night and on wet days ...full post can be see HERE on our travel blog.
Hopetoun Falls, Otway Ranges

Journal pages were accomplished, ATCs made for upcoming swap, little boxes made to hold ATCs and photos for the journals.. and we made up a big batch of sprays using watercolour paints, mica pigments and ink... they arent as rich as dylusions but they serve their own purpose.. when I want a slightly more subtle colour with mica shimmer these will be perfect

Background complete - now to add photo and words

My returns from Marion's swap

I also recently went in Marion Bockelmans annual swap.... and received my returns back this week... very nice they are too... so glad I took part
