Another day has gone by in a flash, and I didn't get half of the stuff done that I had planned to do. A friend came this afternoon and we crafted together, and quite a few hours disappeared there - why does time go by so much quicker while crafting and painting than while doing the h*******k?
We had a very cold day with a nasty, biting wind, and it seemed to whet the appetite of the hungry birds who came time and time again.
For Art Journal Journey (collage) and Paint Party Friday I made another mixed media collage, using an image from Gecko Galz 'From Russia with love' collage sheet.
I painted a page in my giant Journal with gesso, and placed the image in the middle. I added structure paste as snow, spreading it partly over the image and taking it over the rest of the page. When it was dry I painted the page with water colours. and added some extra colour with pastel chalks. I used liberal amounts of glitter to make the snow shine, and added a fence, the tree and the figures in the foreground.
The landscape was grey in grey and misty in the morning, in the afternoon it was just dark grey.
I watched the ships passing along the Rhine:
I never thought I would see Grace Kelly chugging along!
On my way home I watched this bird, some sort of kestrel, which kept hovering in the air and scanning the field on the look out for food.
I got a better photo when it sat on a tree:
This little bird was sitting in the tree outside my window, but would not turn around for a decent photo!
And the Jay was hungry as always:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
