Hi you all, hope you are enjoying your weekend.
We have had a few days sunshine here, which is good, but the people in the flooded areas of Germany are still suffering - many have lost everything, and are homeless. It is an awful situation, and the worst flood since 1501! Here we were lucky, the Rhine stayed in its bed, and the water stopped rising 50 cm under the danger mark, for which I am very thankful. And I won two 'Top 3' blinkies this week, at Simon Says and Make my Monday.
This is going to be a bitty post - a bit of this and a bit of that.
I have at last finished my piece for the Alpha challenge, which this time has to be a letter between fe and fr.
I chose firmament. I have based my picture on the old engravings of the firmament, showing a flat world, and the heavens arched above and round it. I used lots of different stamps to create a scene, and drew in lines with black ink which are always seen in the old engravings. The angel at the bottom is pointing to the scroll, where the definition is written. I used twinkling H2Os to colour wash the scene after stamping everything in archival black. I went round the stars with a gold gel pen and added some Stickles to the sun, moon and the cherub's wings.
I am also linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show - 'S' - for a Scene with a Scroll, Sun, Stars, Stickles and Sparkles.
And it's Manon's Paper Saturdays, too. I have made a little favour bag. These are quick and easy to make for little presents, and can be made bigger or smaller as required. This one will be filled with some home made cookies.
I made the Tag for Tag Tuesday, but didn't get round to blogging it till today. We have reached the letter 'v', so being big-headed I chose the word 'Valerie'. The photo-booth strip is ancient history, from the 1970s. It is always sooo hard to sit there and not make grimaces! I am linking the tag to Pan Pastel Challenge 'tags'
Sorry that the photos look scratchy. Firstly, they are old and scratchy - like me - and secondly, I have a printer which will not print properly....
Hope you all have a good day, and a great weekend. Take care, and thanks for visiting!
