The next journal page 'On the fly'



The title for last month was 'On the fly', which some of us struggled with. Luckily for me, a friend had some appropriate house mouse stamps. The mice have been chased up a tree by the neighbours fat overfed cat, and having eaten all the acorns on the tree they needed to get down for some more. They took advantage of the falling leaves for a quick decent. They did it 'on the fly'
The leaves are a mixture of metal and card, and the bottom is textured and painted. On the reverse side are some tags, with the tale of the hungry mice, and some large acorns in case they run out.

I love this Wendy - the background is so delicate and I love the foreground texture too. Leaf shapes are always good as far as I'm concerned and the little mice are such fun. Your interpretation is spot on.
