amber waves of grain

Hello, my friends.  It's been awhile since I've blogged.  Busy week.  Today I have an art journal spread done for a challenge on OWSE Yahoo group.  The challenge consisted of brayering a small amount of paint on the page, letting it dry and then adding another color.  I actually added a third color, because I didn't like the large amount of white showing. 

The wheat stamp (Judikins) is one that I picked up today at a stamp/scrap expo.  After stamping it in black archival, I used a mustard marker to fill in the wheat. 

I used my computer to print the words from the song.  After cutting them apart, I sponged some cool caribbean ink on the edges. 

I sponged some blue paint around the edges of the pages.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you're headed for a wonderful weekend.
