Thursday Friday Post - TAD and PPF

Hi Everybody!

Rain's theme today is 'Pop-art', so I'm showing a selection of my 'knock-offs' made in past years. I am also linking to PPF.

First up is the lovely Mona, made in Warhol style using a stencil:



Here I have used a stencil of Warhol himself:




This is more representative of op art, but also fits to pop art:




Keith Haring:




The sleepwalker:



The Iconic poster of the Chat noir from Théophile Steinlen shown in Warhol style:







Thierry Noir - and many other artists painted sections of the Berlin Wall:




This one was made using my Warhol knockoffs digitally combined to Poster size:


Niki de Saint Phalle always made extravagant statues of colourful and buxom women having fun:





The Lifesaver fountain in a neighbouring town (Duisburg) is one of her wonderful works. It moves round:





The photo is from Pexels and was taken by Jackson Thomas:


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

Midweek Post

Hi Everybody!

It's midweek already, time is flying!

I have another journal page to share for Wendy's vintage challenge at AJJ. This time I started with an old tag, which I placed into the centre of an A4 page, and then painted the page with diluted acrylics to match the colours of the tag. Then I sewed around the tag and sewed the page onto some black cardstock This was  a quick and easy one:






And a funny for you:


Yesterday I took a walk along the stream next to the house. The fields have been planted with bee-friendly plants to make a huge and beautiful meadow. Blogger changed the order of the photos again!



The hedgerows are full of berries:



I waded through the sea of flowers, they came up to my waist, and it was a great feeling to be in the middle of all these beautiful plants and to hear insects buzzing around me:
















Even though summer is almost over, they made a wonderful display.

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