We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Green remembered days ...

The current Craft Barn challenge letter is V.

As my soul is still in the Scottish Highlands after my recent trip (see previous post), the first word that came to mind was verdant.

I got out my Distress Inks and a selection of stamps and used a brayer for the background, followed by a bit of stamping. I also used a little water to pull some of the ink into the images.


This morning was a little misty, with the sun looking very wistful as if remembering summer - I should probably write a haiku!

  5. Love your approach to Verdant - great stamping. Had a look at your previous post - it must be 50yrs since I've been to that part of Scotland and I think I definitely need to go again!

  8. How beautiful! I guess I'm a verdant when it comes to art, but your verdant is simply beyond beautiful. It is a lovely remembrance of your trip to the Highlands of Scotland and a fabulous choice for V.

    Somehow I thought I had been here days and days ago. Glad I checked to be sure.
