Today started out cool and misty again, but by the time I was ready to go out the sun was out and trying to chase away the clouds. But it was a pleasant temperature for walking, and I enjoyed my walk to Kalhum to visit the ducks and geese, and then a stroll along the Rhine.
This is another of my FT pieces for Gecko Galz. I used an image from the Musical jewel it collage sheet and the background paper is from the Background Jewel it 2 sheet. I used dark grey mirri-card for matting the image, and mounted the BG paper onto a green card blank to pick out the green in the BG paper. For the embellishments I used a shabby bow, and a textile rose. The little birds have been cut using a MS punch from scraps of black card, mounted with foam squares and given gem-stone eyes. This card reminds me of spring and the birds making their music.
Material list: card blank, image and BG paper, paper birds, ribbon and flower, mirri-card for matting.
The path through a patch of woodlands between our little lakes:
Flowers growing through the paving stones:
The goslings are nearly as big as their parents, who are still watching over them fiercely, and have managed to look after all of their children, none of the 8 is missing.
There are lots of lilly pads on the duck ponds and in the moat, and I am looking forward to seeing them bloom:
This fellow thinks he is boss and chases all the others away from 'his' pond:
And the stone lion was holding his nose into the sun:
As I got back to the Rhine the little pleasure boat was just taking on passengers for a trip to the old town in Düsseldorf. It's an enjoyable outing, but rather expensive, so I shall continue to walk....
Hope you enjoyed 'our' Sunday walk today, I enjoy taking you with me!
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
