Made some more papers this week, this is the first of the next design in this years new range of greetings cards, circles again but this time terracotta & blue. I didn't have time this week to make the pretty pic with 9 cards in it ;) But I had to make one at least. I thought it was rather dull & realised I'd not added my trusty gold yet. Still a little muddy looking so I got out the Chinese inks again looking for dark blue but there was only light blue. What a pick up, I thought ;)
I enjoyed making notebooks last week so made a couple more.
I used cream Lokta paper for the inside & made another book out of last weeks paper
I couldn't waste all the little snippets, the cut off corners, small jewels of color ( can you tell I like them?) so I started making some squares for cards, I thought, then decided I might put 3 of the squares together for a collage. I'll scribble some more & stitch.
Lovely sunny lunchtime between the gloomy clouds so I went up on the track behind our house to take pics of the Highland cows, inspired by Aileen
Just in time as they were taken off the hill mid afternoon. I hate to think where they were going.....
The first 2 pics are at the bottom of the hill where they low for their food. They lined up for me nicely, the babies, as they think anyone who's walking out there are going to feed them. Then they followed me up the track, they're fed up the way, thankfully behind the fence as you don't want to get too near those horns, especially with young near them. The amount of visitors who stop IN THE MIDDLE of a single track road, sometimes even on a 60 mph duel track road to take a photo & GO RIGHT UP TO THEM.......don't get me started!! Peeps don't seem to realise how you could get tossed or impaled by a slight turn of a head. I know it's not often but once would be enough for me! (sorry Aileen, I know they're cute little sweeties, really ;) they are in your wonderful pics, anyway!)
The last photo is for a sense of place, the water on the left is the bay in front of our house; what a fabulous place for us & the cows to live!
