A Summer's Eve

 
Hello and here's wishing you all a great and creative week. This piece was done in my journal yesterday morning. We'd been round a second hand market and I came across a very old book, a little gem. I'll be able to use it in my art. I'll photocopy some of the pages and tea stain them. I love adding ephemera to my pieces, adding a little more texture and character to a piece. So we had our first real heat this week-end. I feel the colours in this reflect a summer's eve, of melted orange and pink light. The tree looks wintery, it's actually a mix of hot and cold like those hot desserts you get served with ice-cream. Today is chilly again, so hot and cold are quite in vogue lately. I'm rambling on here, wishing you all the best, enjoy your week!
I'm linking this to Creative Every Day.
