I am not sure where the days between Monday and today went, but they went!
We had a grey and cold day here, but we have to take the weather as it comes,
and just hope it won't get really bad!
At Art Journal Journey we still have one week of 'Inspired by the Masters', and I have another Van Gogh inspiration today. I kept to the same theme as 2 days ago, with a window looking out onto a scene. I painted the background (A3) with blue over gesso, and then had fun spritzing white paint and gold ink onto it. My coffee maker now has some white and gold spots on it, too, I think it looks quite nice. The scene in the middle is one I painted for the last 'Inspired by' challenge, and didn't use because I didn't like the colours. This time I gave it a coat of diluted gesso, which made it much better, and then glued it onto my blue page. The window frame was made with strips of white card, and the flowers and trellis were punched with some gorgeous giant punches that a friend sent me for my birthday.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin.
I have been rather fascinated by the toadstools growing on so many trees around here. We used to call these ones 'fairy steps' when I was a kid.
These are really huge ones on a massive, old tree, that lost half of its branches in the big storm back in June last year.
And believe it or not, the blue balloon is still bobbing along the Rhine....
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
