I have enjoyed watching the flowers open and the bees have certainly liked it too. I need more of these in the garden next year...definitely.

Wanderlust 2022 - weeks fifteen to twenty-one - Artists' acrylics
Walking on Sunshine', a really happy song by Katrina and the Waves from the 1980s.
What a difference a Day makes' by Dinah Washington.
Week twenty was all about the layers - creating a patchwork of collage and adding acrylics to bring some of the pieces out and fade others into the background. It took quite a while to build up as we had to let layers dry. We were encouraged to add words and I wasn't going to, but noticed I had stuck a piece of collage paper with writing which said 'we watched the clouds...and listened to a lullaby' (it was from a digikit of diary pages) right in the middle off the page (serendipity in action once more), so they became my focal words.
Again, I learnt a lot about acrylics and how they can be used. The next seven weeks are focusing on Craft acrylics - should be interesting!

Platinum Jubilee celebration
(photo from here)I couldn't let the opportunity pass without offering congratulations to Queen Elizabeth II on her Platinum Jubilee. She is the longest serving monarch we have had in the UK (seventy years) and she has been dedicated to her duty all that time.

If you are celebrating with a street party or some other party, have a lovely time. If not, enjoy the extra bank holiday and the weekend.
