After the lovely sunshine of yesterday it was disappointing to wake up to a misty, white world again this morning, but I am sure the sun will come out again sooner or later.
For Art Journal Journey, things with wings I have made a journal page with owls today. I think the stamps were from My tattered angels, but I am not sure. The background was painted with gesso, blue water colour and Gelatos. I stamped the circles with my stamp from Hein Design, and the squares directly with the ink pads. The owls were stamped with archival black and embossed with EP extra fine. I made them glow with white and yellow Gelatos, and added some colour to their feathers with twinkling H2Os. For the quote and outlining I used a white pen.
At Tag Tuesday our theme is 'Framed'. I used a TH metal frame and glass slides to frame a photo from Erika, a distant relation, taken about 100 years ago. I added a muse token, and mounted the frame onto a tag made from a scrap of card leftover from some book covers made last year. It is cardboard, textured with tissue paper, painted, and covered with scraps of old letters and gold leafing.
Yesterday we used the good weather to cross the Rhine on our beautiful ferry.
Lots of people, bikes, cars etc were also out and about to enjoy the sunshine.
The captain was sitting on the bridge
We had nice views of the basilica, castle ruins and mill from the ferry:
We walked a long way along the shore on the other side and saw an UFO!
It came nearer, and we saw there was really a man sitting in it, who waved to us all:
Rather him than me up there!
Is that a crocodile in the Rhine....
The captain brought us safely back across the river again, and it was an enjoyable afternoon.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by.
