We had cooler weather today, with lots of fluffy clouds and a nice wind. But I'm afraid it will be heating up again from tomorrow, and then once again we have to expect storms, rain etc.
I used a photo of Frida with a monkey for the background, and increased the transparency to make it recede. The Frida doll cut-out sheet was sent to me a couple of years back, and I saved it for a special occasion....I gave the image a coat of clear varnish before fussy cutting it and putting the parts together with foam pads. I used liquid pearls in champagne to add embellishments to her hair, necklace, and to the patterns in the skirt. I used some fibres to make a belt. I made a frame using oil pastels, and tried to repeat the pattern from her skirt in the corners.
This is the album I made last year using Mexican cotton scraps sent to me by my dear friend Donna, a very talented artist, who lives in Mexico. I will be filling it with the Frida pages I am making for this challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I enjoyed my cycle ride along the Rhine again, and it was good to feel the mixture of cool air, sunshine and a fresh breeze. The clouds were fascinating today, I love watching them form and change.
This is my trusty bike, and today I saw it has a name, 'Donna' - so, Donna is accompanying me on my journeys.
The farmer was cross because one of the bales burst open while he was lifting it....
The crows were having a party:
And the clouds just sailed overhead:
Here's wishing you all a great day. Take care, have fun,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
