Hello friends!

Happy Saturday, hope you are having a lovely weekend.  I have been spending mine mostly cleaning the house and doing some necessary jobs – not the most exciting but then it’s been raining all day too so rain stops play, outside at least.

Today’s Art . . .

For today’s art I am sharing a very quick page I made this afternoon for the Week 5 of #seekgathercreate which is the final set of prompts so I really wanted to complete the five week challenge and not miss a week so here it is:

It’s very junky lol.  The five items for the scavenger hunt are 1. paint blobs (I have green blobs on the sides and pink blobs to look like flamingoes), 2. a bird, (I have a toucan in the tree and a flamingo on the ground) 3. something with holes ( I have a leftover piece from a yellow diecut),  4.  tape (I have some fluorescent yellow post-it tape complete with leftover paint on it)  5. some squares (I have green, pink and purple tissue paper squares).

I started off by cutting up some coffee packaging – the green foil with the birds and palm trees on it – and building my page around that.  I was cleaning the kitchen and had just emptied this bag of coffee into a canister and thought I could use the packaging some day but then realised that I could actually use it today since I needed some birds!  I used other scraps of card and pager to fill in the gaps, then I drew in the rest of the palm trees between the top of the leaves where the toucan is sitting and the ground at the bottom of the page.

The pink blobs at the bottom of the page are meant to look like sleeping flamingoes but it was done very quickly while the paint was still wet so they are very blobby, but hey, paint blobs are required for the scavenger hunt, so it’s all good.  🙂

Since it has birds on it and birds have feathers, I am also linking up to Neet’s theme for this month over on Art Journal Journey.

Let me know what you think in the comments.   As always, thanks for reading!

This might be a quick page Elle but I really like it. I love the color you chose and the tropical birds too. Flamingoes are just fun. So are toucans. Thanks for sharing this with us at AJJ for Neets challenge. Hope it’s been a nice weekend too. Hugs Erika

I am with Neet – I was so expecting your first page to be a cat, but I love it is flamingos and a tucan. Wonderful layers, details and colors. Beautiful work with sooooo much to look at. Hugz

For some reason I was expecting a cat. But I love your junk journal and admire you for getting all of the things in for the challenge you were entering. Well done! And thank you for turning your pink blobs (as you call them) into flamingoes and for the toucan as well which meant you could link to my theme at AJJ.
Love the journal – brilliant!
Hugs, Neet xx
