Jupiter Artland

Jupiter Artland is a wonderful place that Frieda took me to when I visited her in Scotland in September. She just knew I would like it . . .  and she was right! I have taken some of the photos I took and added them to my art journal as a way of keeping those memories alive.

Jupiter Artland is an estate outside of Edinburgh where the grounds have been turned into a public art display. You can use a map provided to discover the pieces. I kept my map and brought it home with me. When I went to create this spread I scanned the map onto a transparency sheet and used my xyron to attach it to the page.

The nails you see on this page were on a gate in the courtyard where we had lunch. 
They were also on the front gate of Jupiter Arland as we drove in and very impressive! 
I have added Silver Lumiere paint to the page and textured it with a fork. 

Frieda and I drove through the "Life Mounds" by Charles Jencks -there is a wonderful close up photo here on the Jupiter Artland website. I am not sure who made this wonderful bridge, but it was a treat to walk over it. The mounds of earth were something Frieda and I could walk up to the top of by following a circular path. At the top there would be a sculptural piece.

So very interesting and unusually beautiful. 

memories kept to savor and enjoy! 

And a big announcement! 
I am in the process of switching over to my new creativelenna website, the switch is in the works as of 11/7/2014. I am mapping my existing domain to the new site I have built at "" -click here for more info on building your own site. I cannot recommend this company highly enough! 

Anyway, there may still be some errors being shown during the transition, meaning you will not be able to reach my new site every time you try, but things should settle down & work correctly in another day or two. Please give it a try at and see what you think. You can leave a comment there too, in the "Updates" section. I will be back with an update when everything is working perfectly too. Thanks!

  1. I checked your new site out Lenna - looking good!

  2. This brought back many happy memories! And like Jewels I reached your new site without ant problems. So clever of you to transfer it and keep all the content!

    1. Well, I did not actually keep all of the content as you may soon discover! Lots of things on the old site were too outdated to keep. I selected what I wanted to keep and rewrote it over on the new site which has been built a different way. But I am so happy to combine some of the old with a lot of new photos and art. The important thing to me was to keep the same domain name of creative lenna so I would not loos all of the google rating I had and so people could find me again. Many of the links to the old site will now land on the homepage of the new site if anyone clicked on them....

  3. You have captured those lush greens and the sculptural effects brilliantly Lenna-LOVE this spread! Off to check your new site:)
