Marilyn in the window

Hi Everybody!

Quick post today, time ran so quickly I couldn't catch up.

For Art Journal Journey, Through my window, and 49 faces  I made an A3 page showing Marilyn in the window. Marilyn has been stenciled onto white paper, fussy  cut and collaged onto a stamped background - wanted it to look like wall-paper, and the window frame has been collaged over her. The butterflies were stenciled, as were the bricks in the wall. The Banksy stamp is from Bee Crafty.

Today we had a book and art market on Market Street:

There was a fête at the Diakonie with lots of colourful stalls selling hand made things, flea-market stuff and lots of food

And last but not least some stained glass windows from the Basilica.

Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks for coming by!

    Der Markt scheint richtig nett gewesen zu sein - danke für die Bilder und die Glasfenster der Basilika sind einmalig schön!
    Ich wünsch Dir eine feine neue Woche liebe Valerie!

  7. A wonderful window page today Valerie with the glamorous Marilyn shining through.

    How lovely to have an art and books market and at least one stall should have been full of your wonderful work I think.:)

    Have a good day

    Love Chrissie xx

  8. Another great window make and lovely photos too, the market looks wonderful!

  9. Looks like you had a feast of art weekend. Your page is fabulous, I like how you coloured Marilyn.
    I love wandering around large markets, especially if they are arty/crafty. Hoe your week has started well :D

  10. Love your Marilyn page Valerie. Hope you had a good time at the market, looks quite big.
    Beautiful window pics.

  11. Bei dem bunten Markt hattest du ja richtig Glück mit dem Wetter - hier hatte es gestern nur geregnet!
    Hast du die Marilyn-Schablone selbst gemacht? Sieht klasse aus!

    1. Die Schablone ist von Stencilry, ich hab sie nur ausgeschnitten.

  12. Street fairs and stained glass windows. What fun. It would be quite a shock to see Marilyn in the window wouldn't it? xox

  13. Beautiful page with Marilyn ! The artisan market looks fabulous, I love to wander through them, feeling inspired and wishing I had enough money to buy some things. Take care, Shirleyxx

  14. Marilyn is wonderful. I simply adore the view you have created. She sure classed up the window.

    I was in awe of all those booths at the street fair. Seems like there were so many more than we get, or maybe it is because they were so close together and you didn't have to walk so far between booths like the ones I have gone to for a few years. I really enjoyed those photos, and of course, the window photos, too.

  15. Great page, Valerie! A very clever design and a fabulous Marilyn. The market looks so interesting!
    Hugs, Mar

  16. Clever collage and that wooden window looks quite real.
    Your book and art market looks wonderful. It must have been a lot of fun.

  17. Wonderful combination of elements for this creative piece liebe Valerie!
    Thank Banksy stamp (the first I've seen) is very cool and thought provoking too.
    What a lovely colorful fair you shared with us. Looks like they had a perfect day for it.
    AND stained glass always stops me in my tracks ♥!

  18. Awesome painting of Marilyn at her window. The markets look super, I would have liked to see them in real life as you did, you are lucky to have them so close to you.

  19. Hi Valerie. Your Marilyn page is delightful and I love the verse you added! I love to go to flea markets and art shows of all kinds. However, they are mostly held at our fair grounds which is not as lush and beautiful as where yours are set up. They look so inviting. Thanks for the photos and especially the one of the stained glass.


  20. Your Marilyn in the window is an awesome work. Great verse too. How fun to have the art fair in your area.It looks so neat and tidy set up in such a pretty spot. Love the stained glass windows.
    Hugs, cm

  21. What a great window- and I love that graffiti stamp!!
    how nice to have a late art fest and to have real art! Most times around here,what people sell as art,well, I never was into the wooden ducks anyway! heehee xo

  22. Here's hoping this doesn't take me all night to post :)
    Love the page and the fair looks like so much fun!!! I haven't been to a street event this summer but hope to remedy that real soon ♥

  23. Love your tag, it's stunning enjoy the pictures and story on the post as well hugs Bee.

  24. Fantastic Marilyn artwork, so pleased you show different shots (thank you) so I can see all the finer details - lovely. Great quote too.
    What a great market, would have loved to have wandered around that :)
    I'm catching up - Tuesday and today to go :) Gill xx

  25. Love Marilyn in the memory window! The market looks really interesting and I love the basilica windows! Chrisx
