Good Morning you all. It's cool and overcast here today, looks like we will have rain later, which nature badly needs. At 11 a.m. I have to take my car to the TÜV, and will come back on the tram. Today will be another alterations play-day, I need to practise.
First of all the cards I made for Gingersnaps. It is my last week as Visiting Artist, so red-gold is a nice theme for a final:
I found it a bit difficult to work with these colours, as I don't use them that much, but decided to go for 2 bold cards, once again using circles and squares as colour fields.
Then I cleared out my kitchen drawer, and decided to alter some of the many tea spoons that I never use . It is the first time I have tried this, and it has not turned out quite like I would have liked it, but I will practise today and see if it doesn't get better. I think it is too frilly and babyish, but OK, there's a photo of my Mum and me as a baby on it. Here it is:
And then I tried making some altered bottle-caps. I am not sure that this is the right occupation for me. I hit my thumb while trying to flatten them with a hammer, and kept getting stuck to the glossy accents as I was impatient with the drying, but in the end I managed 2 which are half-ways OK, although I still need to put soething on the second one. Any ideas?
*Spotlight - Bottle Caps Challenge*The second one has an image of my Great Auntie in it, but I think it still needs something, perhaps some tiny pearls?
OK, I need to start getting ready to take my freshly washed car for its check up. And the lady at the post office was not amused with my decorated box yesterday. Said I would be confusing the postman....Lucky she didn't see all the other envelopes!
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for looking, and even more thanks to those who take the time to leave a comment! .
