Deer pets

Deep in the forest is the theme over at Art Journal Journey.
This isn't a stretch for me as I live right by the woods, and my favorite visitors are the deer.
Here is a picture taken of the newest members to join the wooded landscape of North Carolina. Aren't they cute?

As you can imagine ( or maybe not if you look at my "garden" ) it's quite a challenge to try and grow flowers with my deer pets. But, the New Guinne Impatient has stood the test of time as they aren't so tasty. As you can see, mama knows but the babies had to learn on their own. It didn't take too long for them to give up eating them.

I am just finishing up my page for Clearprint and will be sending it in on Monday. Again, using the front and the back page of the vellum to create my page.

The front is painted with DecoArts Multi Surface paints to bring everything to the forefront.


The back page was painted with the same black and a greyed down version of the paint and then stroked over with various inks to create, hopefully, a misty view of the mountains in the background.

I really love the dimension that painting ( or drawing ) on vellum creates! You should check out Clearprint and order your own.

Love the way you have painted the deer silhouetted against the forest, what a beautiful picture, it all works wonderfully well.
Love your photographs too, especially the second with the young deer tasting the Impatiens.

Awww, what beautiful photos! I just love the deer and other wild life here in North Carolina. We had a sweet little bunny and squirrel in the yard the other day but the deer are just so lovely!
Hugs,
