Arty Girlz Challenge - Nature


I just returned from my morning run. I love running in the early mornings because the natural world is unencumbered by the human sights and sounds. Today I saw a blue heron, rabbits, racoons, lots of types of birds, squirrels (of course) and even came face to face with a deer! For a few seconds we just stared at one another with only about 5 feet between us. "Nature" obviously couldn't be a more appropriate theme for today's post for the Arty Girlz Challenge. These encaustic collage pages were created for a round robin journal.

Heather, these two cards are lovely, I especially like the large butterfly one. They are warm and organic looking.

Isn't it a wonderful feeling to be able to see something you view in an every day situation like running and transpose it into art? To recreate what your mind's eye has already recorded. These are wonderful -- colours, composition -- very nature indeed!

Oh my--just gorgeous--I can't wait to learn how to do this--your colors and images are just soooooo pretty! Glad to hear about your run . . . I love wildlife--I haven't been able to go walking the past several days because the smoke from all the wildfires in our area is too thick and the air is not fit to breathe. :( Can't wait until it clears out . . .
