My Texture Walk...and Journal

Yesterday evening, I took a "Texture Walk"
around my yard













 It then turned into a "Color Walk" 
because I have surprise orange poppies this year
...aaah....love....





Then, it led to this journal page.


Here are some details.
Thank you for looking and
for sharing in my texture walk of color!








 What inspires you most in nature?

All of the colors I find in nature are most definitely what inspire me most... I love those poppies too! I think I am going to have to plant some of those in my own yard next year. :) And I love the iron that you photographed, and incorporated that pattern in your journal page, it's gorgeous! Love the pop of green and orange together too. ♥

What a delightful walk around your garden! It's lovely to see the summer colour (as we are in the depths of rainy winter) and fun to see how the textures and colours turned up in your page. I love the use of the positive and negative aspects of the mesh-type stencil and mask.

Hi Kathy,

WOW, I love the walk you took us on. So neat to see your page that was inspired from the walk, looks great. Love all the texture and pop of orange and green you added.

I like taking walks like this thru my yard too. It amazing what you can find in your own yard.

Thanks for sharing and inspiring!

I love your orange poppies! And, your journal page is beautiful. It really captures the textures you found in your garden. I'm mostly inspired by the flowers in my garden. I love flowers!

Beautiful ideas and a beautiful piece. Everything in nature inspires me, especially colour combinations & leaves. But now you've got me looking at fungi too!

What a great idea of having a texture walk. The next time I walk my dog I'll bring my camera. Thanks for the inspiration.
