Hope you are enjoying your weekend. It started out cool and misty here on Saturday, but got better and better as the morning progressed, so I peeled off my jacket and tied it round my middle while I was walking, and it was good to feel the sun on my back again.
I have been having fun playing with cardboard and old linen again. The background (A4 size) was partly peeled and then painted with terracotta acrylics, and embossed while still wet with Frantage aged gold and copper EPs. I fringed the edges of the linen and printed the owl image, from Gecko Galz (owling for you) directly onto it. Then I sewed it onto the cardboard. I added some leaves, beads, berries and fibres as trim. To hang it up I added a TH ball chain with a muse token. This was a fun piece, I love playing around with everything for autumn and Halloween. I am linking to Art Journal Journey, living beings.
On my Saturday walk I noticed that a piece of a meadow has been fenced off as home for some chickens, who were happily picking and clucking around. They have a very noble, mobile hen-house, and it's good to see chickens living a good life outdoors instead of being cooped up inside.
I carried on down the path towards the Rhine:
The white cattle were all grazing happily, too. The calves have grown a lot.
This ship on the Rhine looked like a swimming mountain range, I don't know what it is that was heaped to mountains, but it looked very interesting.
And I love this feather that I saw on the path under the trees, still glistening with dew-drops.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
