Today I'm once again joining Hazel of Hazels' Creative Moments, this month's host at Art Journal Journey. She wants us to take a magical mystery tour. It can be anywhere, past, present, or imagined.
I decided that since we had visited Santorini earlier, we should hop on the magic carpet and go there again.
This time our magic carpet is returning us to Oia, a well photographed city on the isle of Santorini.
The beautiful blues that are so prevalent on the domes of the Cycladic architecture are echoed here, only more colorfully.
This is Day 19 of 22 leading up to bEARTHday and I recycled a used file folder as my substrate. I added some of my handmade shimmering mists to the substrate. I used two images from two different travel brochures, and created computer generated text that I printed on pink printer/copier paper. I outlined everything in black Sharpie.
Tomorrow (Thursday) I'm going to lunch with my foodie friend Sally. I will be celebrating my bEARTHday a couple of days early with her, because she and I are going to a march/walk/rally on Saturday. It has something to do with Science and the Environment. I can't wait to celebrate my bEARTHday that special way.
Once again, I am SO grateful for your continued support of my art and recycling efforts. You don't have to be a rocket scientist or even have a degree in Environmental Engineering to help save our planet from trash. So, thank you for these daily visits.
