Phalanx of Umbrellas!

 Hello there, how are you all doing, well I hope. Gosh we are mid week already, the weeks are just flying past. Have you noticed that it is getting darker earlier now too, soon be dark at 4 o'clock lol. Anyway, I hope your week is going well.

Alistair is away sailing with a couple of friends, so it's just Teallach and me for a couple of days, nice and quiet and I've control of the TV gizmo.

Thank you everyone who manages to visit and for the lovely comments you leave, all appreciated .

I have a coloured page today;

This Phalanx of umbrellas.....yes that's the collective noun for the, or one of them, the other is Spawn, but I preferred phalanx. So, I've coloured them with FC Polychromos pencils, DI with a cloud stencil in the background and of course Stickles for sparkle. I was really pleased with how this page turned out.

Here is the lovely book it's from, and loosely translated is, my lovely Spring Walk.

Well, that's me for now folks, away to zap my mushroom soup which will do me for my tea with some crusty bread. Enjoy your evening and see you soon, keep safe,

The colours you have used given a lovely summery feel Kate and brollies have been the order of the day this summer in these parts.

I love the umbrellas, who knew there was a word (or 2) for a gathering of umbrellas! Fun coloring page and beautifully done.

Best part of the hubs going away for a couple of days is NOT having to make dinner! Soup and bread sounds good to me!

What a delightful image with the phalanx of umbrellas Kate...I had no idea that's what the collective term was, and such beautiful colouring and inspired use of the clourd stencil used as a background. I hope Alistair enjoyed his sailing and you enjoyed having full charge of the x
