Today is the beginning of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday - Tea cups, or coffee cups, or mugs. Hope to see lots of you there during the next 2 weeks, projects of all formats are allowed. As I am a coffee drinker I cut 'my' head and filled it with coffee cups on a patterned background. In the circles I wrote my coffee poem, written a couple of years back. Here it is again for those who can't read round the circles:
Give me coffee, but not tea,
Tea is not the drink for me.
Coffee, frothy, brown and hot,
I can always drink a lot.
Coffee topped with whipped up cream -
This with joy will make me scream.
Café au lait with chocolate sprinkles,
Makes me happy, stops my wrinkles.
And if the point you have not seen -
A day without coffee makes me mean!
I am also linking to Art Journal Journey, masculine-feminine.
I had to make a birthday card for a neighbour who will be 90 this week. As he loves cars, I made one using Tim's old jalopy. I cut the car from cardboard covered with aluminium tape, which had first been embossed with an embossing folder. The crown and wings were cut from the same material. I coloured the 'metal' with Vivacolor rust, and gave it some patina with black antiquing paste. I mounted the car and heart onto brown mirri card, and matted it with 2 layers of peeled cardboard, painted with rust, copper and gold, and partly embossed with Frantage vintage copper and gold. I rubbed the edges with some Inka gold in gunmetal grey, and used snap fasteners as embellishments. I am linking to anything but cute, masculine.
A few photos from yesterday's walk, today was too wet!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
