The weather is showing us a different face each day - yesterday we had sunshine and technicolor- blue skies, and I was able to visit my friends the ducks at Schloss Kalkum, and enjoy the lovely grounds.
The Rhine was blue, too.
Today it was wet, wild and windy, but still very mild, and I saw several bushes and shrubs beginning to bloom. I wonder when winter will arrive?
It is another 'double Tuesday' today, time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday, and a new tag at Tag Tuesday. At TIOT the challenge is 'In with the new' - to use new stash, or try a new technique etc.
As usual, you have 2 weeks to join in, so hope to see some of you over there with new ideas.
I used a new image from Gecko Galz, 'Winter walk' from Winter Garden Collage Sheet 1. I printed the image onto matt photo paper, and matted it with mirri board and silver cardstock. I mounted it onto a 6" purple card, which I made into an easel. I used twigs and berries collected on my walks as decorations, sprayed with 'snow' and tied together with a purple ribbon.
Material list: 6" square card, card for matting, GG image, ribbon, twigs and berries.
(Tip: I put the freshly cut twigs and berries on the heating, and they dried and were ready to use in a few hours)
At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is homes / shelters.
At first I wanted to make a house, and then I remembered this picture I had in my stash. I glued it to cardboard from a cereal box, gave it a coat of clear varnish, and then crackle glaze, which I distressed to make it look antique. I cut the middle part away, placed one of my photos behind the arch, and wrote the text of Psalm 91: 1. I added some golden liquid pearls as a further embellishment.
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
