We had a chilly day here, but it stayed dry most of the time, so it was fine for walking, and I love to watch the clouds and sky, always in motion, and always beautiful. I followed another little rabbit path through the meadows today, and it led me down to the shore, so I walked quite a way over the sand and shingle and rocks, and enjoyed it.
At Tag Tuesday our theme is India, which had me stumped. Then I decided to make a card showing Gandhi, a truly great person. I matted the image with orange, white and green - the colours of the Indian flag.
At Try it on Tuesday, the challenge 'Use your stash' is running for another week, so plenty of time to join in. I used a chipboard album which has been languishing on my shelf for years. I painted it blue, and added some random stamping with a stone pattern stamp. The two little dolls have been in my possession for over 60 years. I made some additions to their clothes and style to make them fit into 'La Casa Azul', the 'blue house' where Frida and Diego lived.
The chairs were made with a Sizzix framelits die and stamp set. I stamped and cut out the furniture, and then stamped the chairs directly onto the painted chipboard. I fixed the die-cuts over the stamp, moving them a fraction to the right, so that they seem to have a shadow.
The photos used on various pages were taken by my friend Donna when she visited the house in Mexico city back in June. Here I cut around the statues.
This is the bedroom:
I think this must be the hall....In between this side and the back are pages for journaling, some stamped images, postcards and more photos.

This is the little path I followed today
The sky and clouds changed continually:
I wondered how somebody managed to get home without his shoe:
I love these little 'still life' pictures:
And I would have liked to have taken this beautiful rusty stone home, but it was too heavy....
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
