Today was a no-sun Sunday, but I still enjoyed my walks along the Rhine and through the fields. It is quieter when there's no sun, a lot of people stay home, and I always have the feeling that I have he world just for me.
I made a new page for Art Journal Journey yesterday. I had used the paper for trying out leaf printing and some home made sprays, and I think the leafy prints in the background look like trees. I drew the large tree on the right, and the small one on the left, and glued on a TH die-cut branch tree. The magpie on the pumpkin is a stamp from Gecko Galz. I glued on an image of Hänsel and Gretel, who are frightened of being alone in the forest, as it's getting dark. The witch is flying over and has seen them, but the big tree has seen what's going on, and has told the butterfly to fly off and get help, so let's hope the kids get saved on time. I used water colours, prismalo pencils and oil pastels. The leaves are die-cuts, and the toadstool has been painted.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, deep in the forest.
The trees here are not deep in the forest but in the park of Schloss Kalkum
This little beauty fluttered onto the path for a rest this afternoon
I saw the heron again this morning, and crept up very slowly so as not to frighten him off. He looked rather cold and hugry
Have a good start in the new week, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
