The new week has brought us a new colour challenge at SOC - pink, apple green, and a touch of dark green. I used one of of my ladies again - she was printed out onto scrap paper, and then coloured with water colours and oil pastels. I need to do things just now which don't make my thumb hurt any more than it's hurting now! I don't know what made me give her a pink eye, but I did. The quote is from Ray Kroc. I think I am definitely getting towards the ripe stage!
At Tag Tuesday the theme this week is garden party. My first thought was ladies in big hats, and then I found this image from Gecko Galz in my bit box - just right.
I distressed the edges with DI in forest moss, and mounted it onto a tag cut from corrugated card, peeled, gessoed and distressed. I added some die-cut edging sent to me by our lovely Twinkle Toes, a butterfly and some paper roses.
Yesterday was cool, damp and misty. I must admit, that as much as I love blue skies and sunshine, the river looks somehow good with the contours fading into the distance.
The hydrangeas in the hospital garden also looked beautiful bejeweled with raindrops.
There was a little flea-market in the thrift shop and in the grounds of the hospital, and I found some bargains.
The town is decorated with bunting just now, as it's 'Schützen Fest' - Marksmen's festival' , a yearly event with traditional parades, music, social gatherings and of course, lots of beer and sausages etc.
And my friends the horses just carry on as ever....
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
