Hi you all, another week has started, let's see what it brings. I managed to get out for a walk today. The water level of the Rhine has dropped, and it looks like it's slowly going back to normal, but the water looked so muddy, the sky was grey, the wind was cold, and I did not enjoy my walk along the towpath as much as I sometimes do. But my cup of hot cocoa on getting back home was good!
I have some more postcards to share with you today, once again made in mixed media techniques, using scraps, paint, die-cut waste, and diverse bits from my bottomless bit box.
Here I used a fussy cut scrap of designer paper - I think it was Webster's pages - on a painted background with some added bits and bobs and some hand-doodling.
Here I used the waste from an umbrella man die cut, over some paper which I had used to try out various stamps. The miri-board shows the reflection of my hands!
Here I made a background of torn paper scraps, painted over with metallic paint. I printed out the picture of Anne Frank, and added a sentence from her diary. The cut off tree and clock symbolise her life, that was cut off because of the abject wickedness of the Nazis. The Hebrew text reads, 'Hodu L'Adonia, ki tov, ki le'olam chasdo - Praise the Lord, for he is good, for he loves the world'
For this postcard I used one of the envelopes that Donna sent me, as these stamps are just too good to hide away. Tissue tape, aqua paint and a cut out of a man who seems to have had a good time complete the card.
My Tag for Tag Tuesday will be a day late this week, so till then, take care, and thanks for coming by!
