After days alternating between hot and humid and torrential downpours and hailstones, Tuesday is supposed to be more or less normal - I hope so!
At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is 'It's a man thing', and I have to admit that I nearly forgot it this time. I made a very quick tag this evening using ready made bits, scraps and scrabble pieces.
At Try it on Tuesday our theme for the next fortnight is 'Wish you were here'.
This reminded me of holiday postcards, so I made two using pictures from our little town:
And this piece is the first of my DT pieces for Gecko Galz for August. We have some lovely Japanese Collage sheets this month, and I used an image from Japanese Traditions 1. I used corrugated cardboard for the background, peeled and gessoed. The image was mounted onto a scrap of coredinations paper. The bird and flowers were fussy cut from a sheet of DP. I kept this simple, as simplicity is the thing which always appeals to me in Japanese art.
(Material list: cardboard, peeled and gessoed, image, matting, ribbon, cut out or die cut images.) I am linking to Moo Mania and More, texture.
I did another nice tour along the Rhine this morning, it was cooler and there was a nice breeze blowing - delightful
And this afternoon I took another photo of the deadly nightshade, which is related to tomatoes and potatoes.
