Janie's Nature Journal

Another lovely topic close to my heart. 
I'm an avid gardener and love to spend as much time as possible in my garden. 

I'm also a member of a sustainable living group, whose  aim is to encourage everyone to plant a tree in their garden, no matter how small. Even if you only have room for a small citrus in a pot. 

I have a large lemon scented gum in my back garden which I love. Infact I love all trees. So with that in mind, I started Janie's pages by laying down a base of recycled papers. 

I cut out a cardboard mask of trees and scumbled the whole area with a mixture of blue acrylics. 

Once the mask was removed, it looked rather funny but once I added a bit of shading to create some definition it started to take shape. 

I then added a few branches and a suggestion of leaves.

I lighten the sky alittle and added a few dots because I like dots.

Lastly l added a message dear to my heart. 

Plant more trees.
