It's the middle of the week already - where does the time go?
And I am sure that time is going even faster this month during our 'Time' theme at Art Journal Journey
I made this A3 mixed media page a couple of weeks back when it was so hot and we were longing for rain. Now it's been raining for several days, so I think it's time the sun came out again!
I used one of my backgrounds, which I digitally altered and fixed it to an A3 page which had been painted with a mix of gesso and blue. I stenciled the cogs, clock and diamonds with rusty hinge DI. I stamped the pocket watch in the corner and 'Tempus fugit' with archival black. The ascending bubbles are a stamp from Ryn Tanaka. I cut another umbrella man out of the cover of an old paper back, and let Mr Umbrella Man and his shadow go walking in the rain.
(No face today, #3 of 49 will appear tomorrow!)
For Tag Tuesday - which was, of course yesterday - our theme was net. And this is not a theme I like. Anyway, as my hair is always sticking up in all directions every morning I decided to make a hair net, using the net from my potatoes, which are now shivering naked in the fridge without their net. I stenciled Dina Wakley's Moon face onto a scrap of spare DP, gave her some wild, fiber hair and added the hair net, which I sewed together to keep it in shape.
Bad Hair Day was the result.
I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, embellishments.
Today I have the last of the photos I took in the Altstadt and Harbour.
This is a statue of Johannes Rau. He was the minister-president of our county, North-Rhine Westphalia from 1978-1998, and President of Germany from 1999-2004. His motto was 'to reconcile and not divide'. He was a wonderful person, who I had the privilege of knowing personally. He died in 2006.
The bridge leading over to Oberkassel
The 'Landtag', the county hall where our politicians meet, nicely situated by the Rhine and near the harbour:
On old crane which used to be used for loading ships:
Love the wood structure on the side of the crane:
And last but not least, a photo from last week, taken on my balcony, showing a spider's web twinkling in the rising sun.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
