Another busy Tuesday

Hi Everybody!

This is another busy Tuesday. We are starting a new challenge at


As always, you have 2 weeks to join us and projects of all
formats are welcome.

I made a mixed media/hybrid piece, which is
also meant for Art Journal Journey, 
light and darkness. The winter birds usually sit on my
window ledge and keep me company. I combined their photo with
a painted background and added some digital pieces
from Serif:

It is also time for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday,
so welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T gang.

Last week I visited the Hetjens museum for ceramic and porcelain,
and they had some wonderful table displays there. These are exhibits from Russia:

This is a travelling tea set from the 18th century, in a special, padded suitcase - perhaps for stylish journeys, or picnics? 

This table display was in the glass museum:

I don't think the cake is real:

 But my cappuccino is very real:

This vase was one of my faves at the glass museum:

 And the wonderful Roman glass and table ware would
not look amiss on a table today:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Frost and more

Hi Everybody!

For Art Journal Journey, light and darkness, I have 
another hybrid piece. I used some elements from
Mischief Circus

Here it is still cold, crisp and frosty. The skies are clear
so we had a lovely sunrise:

The trees were all covered with frost and sparkled in the sun:

 The fine icicles look like they are made of glass:

The raven was waiting at the top of his frosty tree
for breakfast:

I snapped these icy plants next to the tram stop this morning:

And the bronze rhino by the Kunstpalast Museum 
was covered in ice and frost:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Frosty weather

Hi Everybody!

Hope your weekend is going well.
It is very cold, misty and frosty here, and we need to walk
carefully so as not to slip.

For Art Journal Journey, Light and darkness, I made a hybrid piece using a photo
of the moon taken from my window for the background. I cut the  silhouettes
many moons ago, and this time they are jumping over the moon. The stars are from Mischief Circus.

I enjoyed my freezing walk this morning, well wrapped up against
the cold. The mist was quite dense, and the ground covered with a layer of frost:

It was strange not to be able to see the Rhine!

The sun kept trying to come out:

The frozen plants looked lovely:

The roses in the hospital garden froze, too:

I gave this photo a digital makeover to use it as a card - feel free to use it if you like it.

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
