Well, we are certainly having some interesting weather just now. It was extremely windy, wet and dark - just the weather which makes you so much enjoy coming home! I spent a lot of time 'playing' in my arty kitchen - it was unfortunately too dark to do h*******k! I got more little note-books altered, so I will show them tomorrow when I have taken the photos.
For Art Journal Journey I made another collage for my giant journal using strips of ribbon and paper on an old calendar page. The ribbon was a present tucked in with my order of gesso - 3x3 yards of ribbon, so that was nice. I used strips to make the starry night sky. At the bottom I used pieces of blue and green and the Yarn from Patty to make the river and meadows. The houses are scraps of various papers. I glued it together first, and then added the stitching. My machine is working, but still making a dreadful noise. At the bottom I added 2 strips of washi tape.
Yesterday I used some of my small collage scraps to collage these cardboard tubes, the left one will be a present for a friend with some pens in it, the right one is my 'travelling' pencil selection.
I did the small wooden hearts, too, and will use them for another project sooner or later.
I managed 2 walks, although sometimes it was hard to stand because of the gusts of wind. At home I had fun watching the blackbirds. I love their blue-black feathers.
This one always tries to hide behind the big cactus, perhaps he thinks I can't see him there:
It was nice to see this tub of flowers near the Basilica:
Not many people were out, although it was market day:
And the roses at the Marien Hospital are still blooming.
We even had waves on the Rhine today, which is quite rare, but it really was windy.
Have a great day you all, take care, and stay safe if it's stormy!
Thanks a lot for coming by!
