Mixed Media Monday - Seeing Red

It was great having the luxury of Beth hosting over at Mixed Media Monday this week - it took the pressure off me having to produce a sample piece :-) So I took advantage of the opportunity and did a journal page about becoming an empty nester this week. My three children are all depicted by the birds flying the nest - but I do actually know where they've gone, LOL! This was done in a water colour journal using mainly water colour paints and Pitt brush markers.

Well I'm very glad you know where they've gone... I'm sure they'll know where you are too when they need their washing doing! Cute little piece Diane. I feel for you as your fledglings fly the nest... Warmest wishes. Lisa
