I just want to tell you that I`m all fine, but still having so much to do, being with my family ,
and caring for my grandkids!!

So here is just a few pages from my Nature Journal  workshop with ROXANNE (click here to see more!)

I painted the little sparrow , on a piece of eco dyed paper, and placed it on one page with another 
beautiful piece of paper, also eco dyed!! in the same bath!!  As you know I love
lace, and just had to add a piece of old beauty ,too!!

On the other page I placed a skeleton leafe, and wrote a little text around it!

Here is my painted bird close up,- I like him !!

This weekend we celebrate my grandchild Gustav and my husbond`s birthdays....
they were born on the same date :-)  .
This means I will be very bussy again,-but I so hope to be able commenting on your blogs,
from monday, again.

You are all very dear to me, and I look forward seing you again!!!

Love and hugs,Dorthe

Kære Dorte, det er da en dejlig spurv du har malet, du må da tegne og male meget mere. Lov mig at nyde og være så meget som muligt sammen med dine børnebørn, du er jo så langt fra den til hverdag, nyd det gode sommervejr. Knus morkaren.

Your pages are so beautiful Dorthe and I particularly love your little bird!! So, so cleverly painted, really stunning! The skeleton leaf is stunning and so perfect too!

Have a wonderful birthday celebration at the weekend and enjoy every moment!! Family is the most important thing in the world and should always come first!

I love that you think of us out here in blogland!! Have a wonderful time with your family. xo Rhonda

Kjære Dorthe. Den lille fuglen du har malt, er nydelig. Du har mange talenter, skjønner jeg. Jeg så også på en blogg der du hadde skrevet en kommentar på tysk. Åltså er du en språkmester også, min venn. Kanskje du snakker enda flere språk.
Kos deg videre med familien, Dorthe.

Klem fra meg

Dear Drothe, it sounds as if you are having a lovely summer, with your family and making some time for art. I just love your pages here. The combination of materials is what i love more than anything, the lace and papers, your sweet painted sparrow, the skeleton leaf, all parts of your life in this moment.
Thanks so much by making me smile and for sharing the link to my blog as well. I am so thrilled with all the creations!

Oh my goodness Dorthe - your new artwork is just incredible. Painting that dear little bird so beautifully must have surprised even you sweetie. Another hidden talent which is just coming to light - how amazing and how beautiful!
I've visited Roxanne's Nature Journal workshop and is so so tempting! Love everything about it! I can see how much you are enjoying it.

Hope the Birthday celebrations for Henning and Gustav were fabulous and that you shared some special moments to remember my dear friend,

Sending many happy hours of nature journaling with my love as you continue to create so much beauty.

Big hug dear and enjoy the birthdays happiness! xx Wendy
