I am happy to say that the sun came out a bit today, and it hasn't rained yet!
Yesterday morning it just drizzled, so it was still possible to have a good walk and visit the ducks. But in the afternoon I was only able to take some photos from the window - I don't mind getting wet, but that was definitely too much!
I am still busy making tags with lots of texture, and this one started off more or less by accident. I tried the colour I had mixed on what I though was a piece of brown paper, and then saw that it was my lovely glassine paper, which I didn't want to waste. When the paint was dry, I covered the paper with torn pieces of a pretty paper napkin that Mo sent to me, and mounted it onto some black card to make it stronger. After it was dry I added the diamonds with a stencil and metallic texture paste. I thought this looked like a good place for the Umbrella man, especially with the weather being so wet, so I cut him in black and put him in the picture. I used more of my wonderful gilding flakes on the butterfly, and between the diamonds. I mounted it onto some coordinating card.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, and Craftroom Challenge, Things with wings and to a vintage journey, get some texture, as this is much inspired by Tim Holtz' techniques using layering, stencils and embossing pastes.
And here some photos of the rain yesterday afternoon:
On my way home today I spied this sweet little mouse. She was not at all shy, and did not mind me squatting down beside her to take some photos. 2 other ladies came along and we all took pics - she just ignored us, and went on looking for food!
Here`s wishing you all a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
