Wings, dreams and cats

Hi Everybody!
Today I was able to see the sunrise again, and most of the day was dry and sunny, which was good. It's still rather cold, and we have bad weather
on its way again, but that just makes it even more important to
enjoy the sunny hours.

For Art Journal Journey, things with wings, I made another Journal page. The background is a mop-up page. I  sprinkled Brushos and water onto a large sheet of paper, and it was too much, so I was able to make three more backgrounds by mopping up the excess. This is one of them. I used my head stencil to draw the heads with white gel-pen, and then doodled the butterflies, flowers, bubbles  and birds.






At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is 'dreams'. I have used parts of an old tag to make this one, (I Deconstructed a lot of stuff while clearing up/out last week and am recycling things bit by bit)  which shows the wedding of my great uncle. My mum is the girl standing on the left. She always told us that this event was part of her dreams for years.





This morning the sun rose over the frosty fields:



Where there's sun, there's shadows:


And here Lilly and Lucky were trying to convince me how hungry they were:





Have a nice day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  5. Wow.. die Seite ist wieder mal wunderschön.. die zarten gedoodelten Elemente im Gegesatz zu dem spektakulären HIntergrund in seiner Farbigkeit sind wunderschön! - Das schöne Kärtchen mit dem tollen Foto ist ein kleines Prachtstück... ich denke das ist toll wenn man da beim Basteln die eigene Mama sieht als junges Mädel und sicher viele Erinnerungen hochkommen beim Werkeln!
    Deine Naturfotos sind wie immer mehr als gelungen und die beiden sind wahre Stubentiger..keine Frage,
    der Blick sagt aus, dass sie es nicht weiter akzeptieren werden ernährungsmäßig derart vernachlässigt zu werden!
    Jawohl!
    Sie sehen auch schon ein wenig unterernährt aus ... sag mal kümmerst Du Dich als Ersatzdosenöffner auch richtig?

    Einen schönen Tag Dir!

  18. Beautiful page and tag. I love your doodling with the white gel pen and the fact that recycled with both art pieces.
    If you are not careful, those adorable kitties are going to take over your blog. One of these nights you will hear the tap-tap of keyboard keys and awaken in the morning to a brand new blog called, "The Lucky Lil Revenge".

  20. Another colorful project, Valerie. The old photo really caught my eye. Aren't they wonderful and to think your mum was in it too. I actually accomplished something yesterday; I did our income tax reports and submitted them. Not something we look forward to each spring but a requirement. Hope the sun shines more for both of us. It is chilly here today with a sprinkle of snow on the tops of the mountains.

    Love hugs,
    C
