Art Journal Every Day/In The Sun

(Under my Umbrella, Ella, Ella, Ay Ay Ay)

I'm still taking part in
Using the prompt
'Summer Rain'
from the
Art Journalling e-course,
I enjoyed playing around with these pages.

We have plenty of summer rain in the UK ;o)

I used scrapbooking paper 
(that had been lurking in my stash 
since goodness knows when) 
as the background and
further doodled on it - 
the flowers just had to be smiling
at that rain, right?!
The image of the boy holding his umbrella 
(ella, ella, ay ay ay)
was clipped from a magazine.
The raindrops are Claudine Hellmuth stamps
(clear and foam).

This really says it all about our English summer, raindrops aplenty, but does it get us down NO (well maybe just a bit!) the smile of that little boy would gladden any heart and his cheery orange umbrella breaths sunshine. I think I will get myself a bright umbrella to brighten the sky. What a lovely image to see first thing in the morning as I sip my tea.

it reminds me of childhood in England on the beach with umbrellas up! It remains hot here hovering between 36.5 and 37.7 with a hint of humidity and the tease of rain. great page. I am trying to finish travel journal and incorporate Claudine and Kelly's classes!

I continue to be amazed at how proficient you can be at both vintage and more contemporary styles of work. What else do you have up your sleeve?

Miss Iowa said...
