We had a mixed bag of weather today - wind, rain, sunshine, clouds, but it could have been worse. I enjoyed my walks, managed to do the laundry in between, looked after the granddaughter of an ex-colleague for a couple of hours, and found time to do some crafting and painting myself this evening, so I didn't get bored....
Last week an 8x8" canvas fell off the wall, and scared the life out of me, as I was watching a thriller at the time. I suppose it would have been worse in the middle of the night. Anyway, it was one with lots of bits and bobs on it, which all fell off, so I re-used it for this week. I think it is the third time it has been re-worked. I gave it a coat of paint, using metallic blues, greens, purple and rust. The background was already embossed using a CWS stencil and embossing paste. I die cut the trees using the TH branch tree, painted the left one with rust and silver, and the right one, made from corrugated card, has been painted with rust and embossed with Frantage in gold and copper. I added more seed beads to replace those that fell off and rolled under all the furniture in my living room, and splodged some gold ink on for the moon. I made the foliage on the trees with gilding flakes. Added a few dew drops and stars, and that was it - 'houses in the dark forest'. I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin, and to Susi's wonderful Art Journal Journey, deep in the forest.
Today started off well with a lovely sunrise:
I love the changing colours everywhere:
Lots of fungi are popping up all over the place.
This one is a brown fly agaric, next to a tram stop.
And the horses had managed to reduce the pile of hay they had since yesterday, and were busy drinking out of the old bath tub today:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
