We had a grey and cheerless day here, I got soaking wet walking, and after that I stayed home and 'played', baked and relaxed the rest of the day.
For Art Journal Journey I have made another collage in my giant journal - what else. This time it was inspired by Piet Mondrian, a Dutch painter. I drew the squares, and painted some with acrylic paints in red, blue, green and yellow. I filled the white squares with scraps of printed and handwritten papers from letters written in the 1930s and 1940s, as well as 2 halves of an airmail envelope from 1945. The letter was sent from Germany to Israel, and opened - and read - by a 'controller'. I painted over the texts with diluted gesso. This collage tells a story composed of colours and lines, words and sentences, but we each need to interpret it for ourselves.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin.
At Moo Mania and More the theme is Merry Christmas, and I am showing one of my Christmas cards, made with figures cut from a paper napkin, fixed to card and fussy cut, and attached to blue mirri-card with foam squares. The 'snow' has been made with Stickles and paper lace, and the scarf is a scrap of red wool.
And last but not least, some of today's visitors:
Have a great day you all, take care of yourselves,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
