It's really hot today, 36° outside and not much less inside. I tried to keep to shadowy paths to walk along this morning, but this afternoon I walked through the fields and it was scorching. My plaster cast is off, which is good, but my poor thumb is still very painful and stiff, and I am hoping it will be back to normal soon.
In between walks I played with some corrugated cardboard, painted some backgrounds in my journal, and just tried to get the feel of paint again!
The card here was painted with white gesso. The top tag has been partly peeled, stamped, and embossed with copper EP and perfect pearls in copper. The image (Lost Coast Designs) has been stamped with archival green. I used some fibres, textile roses, and a TH token (almost hidden by the fibres) for embellishments.
This tag has been put together with parts out of one of my many bit boxes. I used gold Utee into which I stamped and some paper scraps for the background. The little girl was in my stash, and already cut out, but I think I distressed her a tad too much this time!
I added an angel charm, some Prima leaves and scraps of ribbon and string.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, Moo Mania - anything goes, Manon's Paper Saturdays, and Feline Art Friday.
Today the skies were wonderfully blue:
There are lots of leafy lanes and paths to walk along:
Some of my fave paths are those along the old fortifications:
And I never get tired of watching the Rhine:
Here's wishing you all a great weekend, with time for creating and relaxing. Have fun, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
