Yes I'm a little late greeting in the year.....well the layout is anyway. I have had the idea in my head since these photos were taken to do a layout about our tradition to have a walk on New Years Day. It is always the same walk, a bridleway called the Hertfordshire Way. We only do a little of it as it actually links up into a very large circle of approx. 25 Km. In the summer we sometimes cycle it but you do have a rather large hill to negotiate. It is a pretty walk past farmers fields, hedgerows and woodland....and the local dump! But the dump is only a very small bit.
It was a lovely winters day this year with a layer of snow and bright blue sunny skies. I just love those aircraft vapour trails. It made me wonder where they were going to. Hubby can identify which plane is which just by the direction and time (it's his job to know such stuff). Apparently the planes that are really high up are on long-haul trips.
I hit upon the great idea of using up all my random numbers by painting them all with Gesso and then inking them. I was a bit stuck as to where to put the journalling (unless I have a lot to say I don't think about where the journalling will go until it's nearly finished).
So five months into 2011 and it's only just beginning to warm up, about time too.
