A mixed media journal page for AJJ Architecture.

Hi everybody!
Just a quick post before I melt completely.
At AJJ the theme is still architecture, so I have made a mixed media piece, using up a lot of scraps that were flying around my table. Most of the images used are from Gecko Galz. I have layered many things one over the other, as I like to have some 'hidden' stuff in the background. Colour has been added with pastels.





I was happy to see I was spotlighted at Simon Says last week, that was good.
Sorry, it's too hot to write more just now!
Take care, have a good day and thanks for coming by!

  15. What a fantastic page Valerie.
    It's hot here too, for me. We all have our temperature tolerances and I have reached mine, haha. But, I'm not 'praying' for it to end any time soon, it makes everyone so much more sociable when the sun is warm on their back :0)
