During my school and student days in England, I often had the urge to write on walls. Graffiti were not as common then as they are now, perhaps because there were no spray cans of paint, and felt tips and Eddings unbelievably expensive. But I didn’t just want to write on any old wall. I wanted to write on a nice, old wall of white stone, like at the Tower Of London or on one of those beautiful, ruined abbeys. I always had a pencil with me, but I never dared. In the Tower you can still see verses etc that the prisoners carved into the wall hundreds of years ago, now protected by glass. But I never had the courage to scribble my initials or write a text anywhere. Pity! So I decided to make 2 Gothic windows in stone walls for my art journal this month, so that I can write my texts or words of wisdom on the stones. And then I remembered the story of Daniel, in Exile in Bablyon, at the Feast of King Belshazzar, where words - written from a hand without arm or body - appeared on the walls, *Mene, Mene, Tekel u-Pharsin*, which is mostly interpreted to mean *You have been weighed in the balances and found wanting* (Daniel Chap.5)
So I wrote this on my wall too, and we will see at the end of the month how the story develops. I am linking this to the *Kathryn Wheel*
And here the pictures:
And I also made a card for the *Crazy Amigos* challenge blog, whose theme this week is chairs, I have used a chair and my wonderful little Miss Bird from Character Constructions, I have fallen in love with this stamp!
I stamped the background and then stamped Miss Birdie on a scrap of white card, cut her out after watercolouring her, did some paper piecing at the front of her dress for more fullness, and stood her on the chair. I wonder what she is getting up to there? I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp and Show, then Miss Bird is really my fave stamp just now!
Well, that was it for today. Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!
