The weekend is here!

Hi everybody, it's weekend already. I will be with my friend today, so probably won't get much crafting or painting done. But sometime it's good to have a little break!

I didn't get much done yesterday either, just my journal pages. This time I used more subdued colours, but I think I will be working with pinks and greens again soon as it was fun. This time my theme was self-portraits. I started off with 2 old postcards with portraits from Paula Modersohn-Becker and Else Lasker-SchĂźler, and then I went a bit mad again, and added some pictures of me taken in a photo-booth many, many years ago.... I am linking again to AEDM at Creative every day




We had lovely weather here again; it was rather windy at the Rhine, but the sun was shining, so I had a nice walk which blew all my cobwebs away. The weather should stay nice for the next few days too, so hope to get more fresh air.

Here's wishing you all a great weekend. Look after yourselves, and thanks for visiting!

  2. Hi Valerie - love the self portrait theme. You can't imagine how much I adore old photobooth photos. Wish I had all the ones I ever had taken ... something to innocent and charming about them, and yours are no exception. Great journal pages. Have fun today with your friend. hugs, Donna

  6. Hi Valerie! Your journal pages look great!.. And I had to think about it, but I don't think I've EVER taken my picture in one of those booths before! I've always been camera shy though. I either love how my picture comes out, or I hate it. There is no in-between!.. Anyways, the weather has still allowed for walks 'round my neighborhood too, and we're just savoring every minute we have left before Old Man Winter settles in!.. Enjoy your weekend, and we'll do the same! ~tina
