Happy Fish and Balancing on Waves






I'm linking these to Art Journal Journey where the theme is "the sea" chosen by Sheila over at Orange Esmeralda (www.orangeesmeralda.blogspot.com). A great theme for this beautiful time of year!
These funny folk below are having a right time balancing on the waves!

Art and Holidays







Hello! I've been away for a couple of weeks, but it's great to be back posting here again.
Below are a few collage cards I made, having fun using old art, glue and scissors!
They are bits and bobs of colour, I had to post some bright coloured pieces for this beautiful month of May!














We had a fabulous holiday in our favourite mountain spot, so much space and fresh air!
Even teddy enjoyed some walks!




Lulu loved all the pretty first Spring flowers! One day we went high up and got very near to the snow!



Blissful moments of sunshine and space!



The beautiful lake of  Le Casset, the little village we stay in. Great to know we'll be back again this Summer!

Little Village



I'm off to the mountains this week-end for a couple of weeks holidays so I may not be around for a while and you'll know why.

I love the quiet, sweet and peaceful feel villages have, though this one above is loud and full of bright colour. 
Wishing you all happy, bright and colourful days!
Love 
Kat

Burst of Colour

"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils."
-  William Wordsworth

I love this little verse by Wordsworth, it has such passion and joy in it. An appreciation of nature and its wonderful gifts.

I'm so grateful for these lingering days, the view from my window getting greener by the day.
Though this has been a tough week of sickness in our home, but we are slowly on the mend and poor Lulu who still has a high temperature will pick up soon now she is on antibiotics.



Here's a piece I did a few weeks back and never posted, I've been too tired this week to art, but I'll bounce back soon. This piece has a few first blooming flowers bursting through as days begin to stretch!


Wishing you all well
Kat xx

Rising From Wintry Rest


"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."
-  Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Sensitive Plant 


This picture should have been done in green for Spring, but here we have the hot colours I love playing with.  The flowers in this abstract piece are joyfully singing out in the warm sun shine, enjoying the first warm days! 
I hope you are too!

Spring Life




I celebrate Spring again with this piece, little bugs and new life joyfully greeting the new day!
We have been spoilt this week with deep blue skies and new luminous green sprouting all around.
I have relished quiet, peaceful walks, fresh Spring air and that deep blue sky. Not to mention the sounds of Spring, birds singing and celebrating. I've loved listening to the ducks and the party they have been having!

Enjoy all the moments that creep into your day, they are to be savoured, each special in its own way!

Bright and Happy


The first days of Spring are here and we've had a mixture of sun and rain, perfect for blooming flowers and growth ready to sprout all around. It feels so magical, that feeling of fresh growth and light stretching by the day. The earthy scent of Spring and the beautiful light dazzle me and so I had to post these happy colourful pieces to rejoice!

Let the moments linger softly, enter your own beautiful trance and listen to your own story.
Live life at your own pace and feel the grace in your beautiful day, enjoy!
Soak up the good in your day, smile and be happy!


Not all is rosy pink though, some days are wet and dark and I've been feeling pollen loaded in my head, like cotton wool and oh so hard to wake up some mornings. That's when I like to think of these two words that help the day go smooth, "grace" and "gentle," such lovely words urging me on in the right direction.


Some days Winter still feels very present ready to contrast beautifully with the first of Spring when the sun warms, the light reaches in corners and the day stretches open wide.


Today was a beautiful day, this is my dad with Lulu.


Here are the donkeys we love to visit near my parents house and give carrots to.


Lulu and I enjoying our first of Spring!
