Hadrian's Wall Country, Ryeland Sheep In Clover

Our Ryeland Sheepe do have the best woole,
A face like a terrier dog,
And a friendly way about them.

Do ye step close to the Ryeland,
She will approach ye for a pat.
And she do loveth her kin, right well.

Old Daniel
Excerpt  from The Sewing Chronicles of Lady Lizbeth, Secret Diary of a Time Traveling Maide

My work is inspired by people like my fellow-Photoshop-lover Judy Gosnell as well as the Romantic stylings of Jane Austen. My art-journaling has been inspired by a movement that's born of both modern digital and old-time analog techniques. Inspired by recent travels in England, I ran across another inspirational art-journaler,Rachel Whetzel, who makes her home and art in the U.K.

This farmyard scene from Rachel's site is reminiscent of the countryside where I spotted these sheep a few weeks back.

 IS that a darling little goat in Rachel's yard, or what?
