Happy Easter from Stonehouse, England!

 
 
No, I'm not really in England, but I'm participating in International Fake Journal Month which runs in April each year.
 
I'm transporting myself to a very small village in the Cotswalds, England.  I have been become increasingly interested in researching my family history, so I'm pretending that my ancestors didn't leave that area, but that I still managed to end up on the planet.  I'm hoping to learn more about the area and what life is like there now.
 
That's a picture of my house and a gouache painting of some hot cross buns.  Roz is giving us some prompts if we care to use them and one of today's prompts was "bakery goods".
 
I prepared my journal by gelli printing some wild backgrounds.  In this pretend life I take way more risks in my journal, for better or for worse.  Painting in thick gouache is new to me too.

    1. Thanks, Dianne! I still have "your house" bookmarked - maybe I'll get over there sometime (wink wink)
