Today we are starting a new challenge at
and the theme has been chosen by our lovely Yvonne, who is our talented Guest Hostess this month. Her chosen theme is
Many of us wonder where time gets to, mostly it flies, sometimes it drags - as Einstein said, everything is relative!
So this month we want to see all you can think of for this theme - get those creative juices flowing, follow the flow, and link your creations to us. I am looking forward to seeing your work.
As it is summer, I have been inspired by the beautiful flowers I see everywhere on my walks. I was inspired to make the one-sided face by an idea I saw on Pinterest. I just used the idea, and drew my own face style and used a stamped collage of roses, leaves and a clock (all 4 stamps from LaBlanche), masking the parts that needed to stay free, and colouring with Gelatos and water colours. The A3 background was gessoed, and stamped with a text using a remnant of pink paint from another project. I drew in some extra leaves, and added the shading with pastel chalks. I had fun making this one. I am also linking to Kim Dellow's Friday Face Art, where this month our faces should be inspired by other blogs.
I am also linking to Mix it Monthly, mixed media flowers.
Today started off again with a wonderful sunrise. One of my readers asked if I get up specially to watch it - well, no, I just can't sleep!
The pictures were taken on my Thursday walk to the next village up the Rhine.
I love how the hibiscus is spilling over the wall:
And I always wonder that this wall is still standing:
I love going through the avenue of beech trees:
And saw lots of the berries of the Arum Lily growing in the undergrowth:
The sun was shining, and the sky magnificent:
The heron was hunting:
The crow was watching him:
All in all, a wonderful walk!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
