A tiny seaside cottage

5 Flares Filament.io 5 Flares ×

By the sea, the new theme over at Art-Journal-journey is up. Thanks to Valerie and Susi  for hosting and Orange Esmeralda for the theme.  I needed a good play session in my journal, it’s been a hectic as ever week.  The idea of tiny cottages by the sea, or lake, or pond has always been welcoming to me. I know that in the UK they have marvelous brightly painted cottages that dot the beaches.  With that in mind, I used a gelli printed sheet as my background and with inks, pens and oil pastels I created my fantasy cottage with a bitsy sailboat at the dock.  Hop on over to see what everyone else is doing, the turnout has been incredible.

  1. This is beautiful, love your colourful place by the beach, I would like to live there! Take care of yourself, hugs, Valerie

  2. Looks like a lovely sunny day with the bright colours, especially the blues. Love the house which looks like it is actually in the sea with a fishy floating by, and I like the yacht. It looks quite mystical. Another Corrine special.

  3. I would love to be there right now! Have a great weekend

  4. Looks like a great place to hang out. Been rather hectic this week here too but mostly in a good way. Enjoy your weekend.
