Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
For Art Journal Journey I have another comedian's page, but this time the stamps I used were not from Al Hirschfeld. I used a set of Charlie Chaplin stamps issued by the Vatican, and another stamp from Czechoslovakia. The large image of Charlie was made with a stencil from Stencilry.org. I painted the A3 page with gesso, and used various stencils to create the background. I added some shading with DI old paper. I kept the colours to red, white and black again. The bow tie was added using a scrap of red paper.
He was another man whose films I devoured as a child, and I must admit, I still love them.
The quote is one of my faves and is from CC:
Failure is not important - it takes courage to make a fool of yourself.
Today some happy mail arrived at my place from Chrissie.
The envelope is a nice piece of mail art!
Inside I found a large piece of burlap, a tin of charcoal pencils in various thicknesses, some lovely bird cards, which will be great for scrapping, and some lip salve. And last but not least, a beautiful tag from Chrissie, which is now on my desk watching me! Thanks a lot Chrissie, your gifts are much appreciated.
Today was warm and rather humid, and we had some glorious clouds this morning:
I watched this lady standing on the shore of the Rhine doing her Yoga exercises- what a lovely place to meditate!
And this is a little boat belonging to the fire brigade:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
