Journal 52 - Somewhere

I thought I'd show you what I've been up to this week.  Now I'm really not an artist but it's good to get out of your comfort zone once in a while.  Week 2 prompt of the Journal52 challenge is Somewhere - a Simple Place. 

My first thoughts were sitting on a mountain admiring the view, in a garden by water, by the sea watching the waves crash etc so I've tried to combine all three.  The background is just done with Distress Stains swiped across the page - a quick and easy way of painting!!  I've added white dabber clouds, and some greenery with stamps from Crafty Individuals (CI-207) and 7 Gypsies (Nottinghill).  I think I need more practise with the writing!!

We visited Aysgarth Falls in the summer and carved onto some wooden seats along the river was the phrase - sit a while and listen to the sound of the  water fall.  Doesn't matter if its a powerful waterfall, a babbling stream or waves crashing on the beach ... it washes your cares away!!

Well I did stormy seas last week and water this week - I wonder what this is telling me!


  1. It's beautiful Elaine and all the better for having your own handwriting, in my opinion! Hugs, Anne x

  2. A lovely page, especially knowing it is all your own work. Jenny x

  3. A very beautiful scene, my idea of heaven - a hill, sea and grass! Yes I agree with Redanne that your own handwriting makes it yours. Lynn x
