Tag Tuesday and Kandinsky cased

Hi Everybody!

Monday started off here fine and sunny, but in the afternoon the promised rain and wind reached us, so the next couple of days will be wet. But wet days are still fine for walking and even better for painting and crafting, so I'm not too sad about it!

Today is time for a new theme over at Tag Tuesday and of course, the challenge at Art Journal Journey goes on all month, so plenty of time to be inspired by the masters! And at Try it on Tuesday you also still have a week to enter the colours of autumn challenge.

The theme at Tag Tuesday is 'crown it'. I made a quick tag using corrugated cardboard, peeled and painted white for the background. The image is one of Astrid's freebies,  which she generously offers on her blog. I stamped one of my Paper Artsy 'clockwork birds' onto the tag, using Archival back and super fine black EP. I added some embellishments, and it was done.




This Kandinsky picture looked so simple .....mistake! It was hard! Anyway, I cased Kandinsky, using my own colours. The background was sprayed with a light pink spray, but it is hard to see here. I used Sharpies,  felt  and gel pens for the drawing. I am linking to AJJ, inspired by the masters.




Monday started off really well, with a beautiful sky, I love the colours:




I enjoyed my walks along the Rhine and by the lakes.





Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  3. Das Tag is wundervoll.. dieses Motiv mit dem gekrönten Uhrenvogelwesen hat es mir immer schon angetan.. das ist eins dass ich mir vielleicht doch mal zulegen werde, obwohl ich mir geschworen habe keine Stempel mehr zu kaufen.
    Boah Dein Kandinsky inspiriertes Teil ist genial! bin begeistert!
    ♥♥♥ AJJ dankt Frau Valeri"nsky"
    Deine Fotos sind wie immer ein Genuß - man merkt eben dass ein Künstlerin die Kamera benutzt...
    Hab einen schönen Tag -- das Wetter ist zwar bescheiden, aber Du hast recht umso lieber gehst Du ohne schlechtes Gewissen an den Basteltisch!

  6. A very beautiful tag Valerie and it doesn't look as though it was quick at all. Lovely texture and images to look at on it.

    The drawing is wonderful and I haven't heard of the artist so will be looking at that later.

    Great photographs. I can well imagine gazing out at the view under the trees and feeling at peace with the world and nature. Thank you for sharing them all every day.

    Foggy and cold here so far but planning a trip out anyway.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie x

  7. Ein klasse Tag und dein Kandinsky-Werk ist genial- ich mag seine Werke auch sehr! Hier ist es noch trocken aber die Luft so lau wie ein Föhn und ich bin schon mit Kopfschmerzen aufgestanden. Jetzt erst einmal auf Hunde runde und dann wollte ich mir endlich mal wieder Kreativzeit gönnen :-) Ich wünsche dir auch einen kreativen Tag- freue mich schon auf neue Arbeiten hier. LG Dagmar

  11. The tag is pretty--I always enjoy the dimension, and I think the use of cardboard in your pieces is one of my favorite substrates now!

    The Kandinsky looks anything but simple or easy to me! All those intricate lines must have made it very difficult to add color. Very nice work.

  19. Hey, dein Kandinsky-Werk ist großartig... ich glaube auch, dass es schwerer ist, als es aussieht. Doch bin ich sicher, dass ihm alles ganz leicht aus der "Feder gefallen" ist...
    Ich habe mich auch schon anstecken lassen von diesem tollen Thema und verehre so viele Künster - auf jeden Fall mache ich dieses Mal noch mehr!

  23. Your take on Kandinsky looks good, well worth framing - an original.
    The sky photo with the strips is fairly amazing, light navy and primrose yellow, amazing colouring, top marks to the sky artist too.

  26. You did a great job of Kandinsky! I know, he is unexpectedly difficult. I did in in a quilled twinchie (http://zoe3265.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/quilled-abstraction.html), and it was difficult. Fantastic tag - I love all the detail you put in.
