We had another hot day here, but it was dry and no rain, so that's good - we will probably be needing our wellies tomorrow as they have once again forecasted rain, hail etc.
This is another Frida journal page. I got a stencil from Stencilry which I tried out on old calendar pages. Then I decided not to bin it, but to use it as it was, so I added more colour, flowers, some background stamping with a stamp dear Chrissie sent me, and a quote from Frida Kahlo, 'I paint flowers so they do not die'. I used viva papercolor in burgundy for the stencil, and then filled in the little gaps with various colours using oil pastels. I used the same colours for the doodled flowers. I am linking to Art Journal Journey and to Manon's Paper Saturdays
The Rhine is riding high just now after so much rain, and it looks like there are swimming islands where the water has covered some parts of the shore. The swan evidently felt at home there.
Looks like some people were having fun building a driftwood shelter for Robinson Crusoe. I think this is a great way to get kids occupied in the holidays.
Can you see all the seagulls? They were just bobbing along down river, there must have been hundreds of them:
Have a great weekend, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
