Sunday Mix

Hi Everybody!

Hope your weekend is going well.
The weather was quite nice; warm, sunny/cloudy and with a spot of rain here and there - typical summer!

For Art Journal  Journey I have another piece for masculine-feminine. I discovered an A3 page which had been collaged with various vintage papers, painted with gesso and coloured with pastels at the bottom of a pile of stuff, so used it for this mixed media collage. I added some washi tapes and  used 2 pictures cut from my magazines (the lady downstairs always  keeps me supplied with magazines, which she gets from a friend, this way they are well used.) I collaged the faces, and a zip also cut from a magazine advert.  Then I added a crown to the lady and splashed some paint round the faces, just for fun. I found the quote on Google.
I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, numbers.








I enjoyed walking along the Rhine, watching the ships



And the ducks




And this boat carrying salt or some other white mineral is always fascinating, as it looks like snowy mountains swimming up the river:




The trees along the Burg Allee (Castle Avenue) offer shade when the sun is shining:


And St Swidbert, the patron and founder of the town, still stands on the corner of the street that bears his name. I wonder if he would recognise the town if he came back today after 1300 years?




Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  21. Marvelous depiction of the two sides in all of us. The zipper is so effective! xox

  22. Oh so true, so true. Men need us and I think they fake it so we do more for them. It is obvious you had a bright sunny day because your photos are so sharp and the one of the boat carrying salt or whatever is amazing. Your art journal page is also bright and wonderful this morning. This monthly is flying by and it is unusually hot here for this time of year. It was 102 at 8PM last night. Thank goodness for air conditioning.

    Hugs,
    C

    We've had more sunshine this weekend than the whole rest of the month. Hoping July is a little drier :o)
