Frida and sunrise

Hi everybody!

Another week has flown by, and Friday is almost over here - where did the day go? I was up very early this morning as I had to go to the doctor's for a big check up, and was rewarded with a wonderful sunrise. I stood on the balcony, watching the sun and the sky, and it was a great start to the day.

Today I am sharing another Frida journal page. In case some of you are getting tired of Frida fever, August will soon be over....
The Frida image has been stamped onto a piece of hand painted paper. I was lucky to get 2 lovely stamps from an EBAY auction, and have used one of them here.

The background is a sheet of DP. I cut into the paper along the pattern  at one side and slotted the image into it. I highlighted some of the printed images with a white highlighter, and embellished with a scrap of net, some lace and washi tape. I inked the edges with a mix of pumice and worn lipstick DIs.

I am linking to Art journal Journey, Frida, Paint Party Friday, and to Manon's Paper Saturdays.






These are the photos of the sunrise this morning. I am linking to Mifoc, where the challenge this week is 'mood'. A beautiful sky and sunrise does a lot to make me feel good and set me up for the day.









Here's wishing you all a great weekend, take care, 
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  3. Du bist en wahrer Glückspilz diesen klassisch genial schönen Stempel zu ergattern!
    Eine begnadet schöne Seite ist das ... sagenhaft!
    Und die schönen Naturimpressionen sind gewaltig gelungen!
    Hab einen schönen Abend..hab grad noch Rasen gemäht und nun mach ich es mir wahrscheinlich mal zur Abwechslung vor der Glotze gemütlich- abgeblich kommt gleich was aus einer Nachbarortschaft -da hat einen Frau einen Trüffel gefunden im Wert von 6000 Euro ..so groß..muss ich mir angucken den Beitrag in einem Regionalsender ...

    Knuddel Dich - ich stimme mich derzeit mental auf das nächste Thema ein - hab einige Ideen..
    glaub mein frida fieber ist im Abklingen...
    Morgen muss ich für Wien packen und am Sonntag morgen geht's los..weiss noch gar nicht wann genau ich zurück bin, hängt davon ab wie lang mein Göttergatte für die Trepenhausverfliesung braucht..er sagt das sei eine Riesenarbeit...uff!
    Ich hoffe aber schon dass ich vor dem nächsten Sonntag dann wieder zurück bin.

  9. What amazing and wonderful and changing photographs of your dawn sky. I especially like the fifth one with its touch of yellow.
    You've made a calmer and more contented Frida this time with these lovely soft colours.

  10. Beautiful Frida. I like that stamp paired with the pretty colours and how I love that washi tape you used, I am in search of pretty washi tape like this but the designs are bolder than I really want.
    Skies are always so appealing, those are wonderful images.
    Wishes
