The wonders of nature
Just a reminder that those little things that are so important and which I have rather taken for granted are still there, if I care to look and enjoy.

Good advice and Art Journal 2 (part one)
Huge thanks to all the workers who are continuing to keep the country going too, in very difficult circumstances.
I won't dwell on the situation but will post about my second art journal instead. I made this journal out of recycled packaging and have used stamps, paint, paste, stencils, pens, glitter, embossing powder and anything else that took my fancy. It took me a year to finish, doing a bit as and when I felt like it. Here are some of my favourite pages, with more to come in the second instalment, which will follow shortly.
Creationsceecee on youtube, who made something similar but using watercolour. My version is acrylic paint and stamps. This was a bit out of my comfort zone as usually I like busy pages!
Kate Crane who uses bright colours and mark making but then will break the backgrounds into strips or smaller shapes.
I so enjoyed creating these pages - they don't necessarily have any meaning and the process making them is as important (if not more so) than the finished product. If I don't like a page, it can always be painted over and that is very freeing.
I look forward to sharing some more pages with you shortly.

You can see the five lobed leaves which is what the 'quinquifolia' refers to, I think.
The hellebores are still flowering too and are such good value plants for this time of year. This is Harvington Pink Speckled and it is making a lovely clump now. The others are getting there, but this is the first one I bought.

March Artists' Trading Card (ATC)
I hope that March's weather is a little kinder to the country and indeed the world.
