Collage and angels

Hi Everybody!

Where does the time go? It always seems to fly, but at this time of year the days seem to shrink. I had a busy day with shopping, tidying up my rather chaotic arty-kitchen, and visitors. My Student came for coaching in philosophy, as she has to write an exam tomorrow about Plato's knowledge theory. Later her Mum came to 'play' - that means crafting, of course, so the day went by very quickly.

For Art Journal Journey I have another collage - what else? The background is a page which was started months ago and should have been a Frida Kahlo page, but never got finished, so I added another layer of paper scraps - DP, hand-painted papers, old letters, cardboard and lace, a badge and some butterflies. I enjoyed making this, and was pleased that the half finished page wasn't wasted.






At Tag Tuesday our theme is Christmas angels. These  3D tags are ones which I made last year, and I don't know if I showed them or not. Anyway, here they are (again). I didn't have time today for new ones, and these ones fit the bill perfectly!





I am also linking to Simon's Monday Challenge, anything goes.

The photos were taken on my Sunday twilight walk.





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

    Diese Tags sehen absolut raffiniert aus.... boah! Wie kleine Assemblagen! Schön auch wieder die Fotos .Die Abendstimmung auf den Fotos ist traumhaft!
    Einen wunderschönen Tag liebe Val!

  16. Valerie, I'm late getting to the blogs today and your followers above have stated it so well - great collage and beautiful tags. Angels are my thing as I believe we all have an angel who watches over us and may yours sit gently on your shoulder and guide you to good health and happy days in 2015. I do wish we lived closer because we would have a wonderful time creating together.

    Love hugs,
    C
