Yesterday evening the skies started to clear up, and this morning the sun decided to show itself again. The rain was really necessary, but it's nice to be able to go out without an umbrella again.
For Art Journal Journey, time, and for the Faces challenge which Susi and I are making, I have another face - Number 3. My neighbour looked at it and said it looks like Grandma's wallpaper - well, I think he's at least a little bit right!
The background was made with some rose stencils. I got a whole packet of different stencils from Ebay for 5€ including postage, so wanted to try some of them out. I used colour box inks in 2 colours on an A3 page again. The face was drawn with pencil and went over the lines with water colours. The dragonflies were stenciled with Archival black. Perhaps it's Sleeping Beauty peeping out through the roses after waking up.... The quote is 'If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I'd be picking roses for a lifetime'.
I am also linking to Kim Dellow's 'Friday Face art.
The day started off with beautiful skies:
On my walk I visited the flowers which you can pick yourself and put the money in a tin. Last week they were looking rather sad, but the rain has really done them good:
I noticed this Art Nouveau face under the eaves while passing a house here today - it fits well to our 'Faces' theme.
Thanks for all the nice comments on the photos I took in the Altstadt and Harbour last week, I will try to go on another little outing next week.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks for coming by.
