Summer Garden Joys

It was my turn to contribute to the Portland Art Collective Journal. It sat on my desk for a couple of months. What to do? I decided to incorporate the same technique that I used to make our banners. Click here to see how I created it.

The summer garden offers visitors special joys in the sunshine and the shade. The journal entry says, "Come sit in my garden. Let's listen to the bees, smell the roses, see the color and feel the quiet peacefulness".

Hi Paula,

This is a wonderful journal spread! I really like the colors and composition of all the elements.

Miss you,

Edina

I just love this, and am so happy that I have one in my graffiti book. I was going to ask how you did it, but now I know!

Thanks, Edina and Gwen, for your comments. Wish you both were here to sit in my garden with me.

Very cool Paula, the colors are my favorites but your composition and layers are outstanding. It would make some nice cards.
