Rain - so better have a Playday

 On Sunday it rained quite heavily so instead of the planned day out we decided just to chill and play around.  Using either A3 printer paper or some cartridge paper we stencilled, rollered, sponged and generally had a good time making a huge mess.  The piece above has been spoilt slightly by the fact that I forgot that Quink ink is not permanent and I painted some acrylic wax over the surface which made it smudge and slightly obliterated the bleached out birds.  The piece below is the reverse side of it.

My friend liked this page a lot and I didn't.  However, I have scanned it into Photoshop and cropped it a bit and the smaller piece is more to my liking.

The bird was printed using a piece of miracle sponge cut out in the shape of a blackbird, wetted and then inked up with acrylic paint prior to printing on the background surface.

We did fit in a short break up the road to Blue Ginger for tea, and either a chocolate brownie or savoury muffin.

Monday morning was departure day for my friend so we fitted in a quick walk up to the Worcester Beacon before she left, parking in West Malvern.  At lease we missed getting wet by one of the many heavy showers we have experienced today.
