Rain stops play....not!

After a week of fabulous weather...we have now had 2 days of mountain summer storms, temperatures drop, rain pours, thunder and lightning then the sun comes out again! This means I've done some catching up on my journal pages 

Art prompts galore
SOFT / Scavenger : dark blue, silver, legs, diamond shapes, bling, rub ons or stickers (3), 3 pieces of book pages, foil or metallic paper, envelope window, letters cut from magazine or newspaper

 STARTS WITH B//SCAVENGER :Three things that start with A, pale blue, dark green, a mode of transportation, 5 random letters, texture , paint through a stencil, spray with paint or ink, coffee stain ,a feather (drawn, cut out, painted or real) 

Journal 52

28. Summer nights // dog days

29. Camp out / pow wow. 

I needed to do something after the atrocities on the Promenade des Anglais so I went off at a bit of a tangent with this one!

30. Mirth // reverence 

Use a stencil

Start with a dark base

These all called for a degree of improvisation as I'm still on holiday!

My inchie ....underground off the back of my very ancient London A-Z!

Thanks for looking & have a good week :-)
