There was a crooked man....

Hi Everybody!
It's weekend - have a good one!

For Art Journal Journey, architecture, I made another A3 journal page. Last month when I was thinking about what to make for AJJ the rhyme about the crooked man in the crooked house wouldn't go out of my head. So I decided to make a page with it, with a simple cartoon sketch:






Some of the old houses in Kettwig were also a bit crooked, as were the streets and steps, but much lovelier than my poor drawing!


A lot of the lampposts were also decorated:





Windows showing what's inside and what's opposite:






Beautiful doors:





Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!
Take care, have fun,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  5. Great page, Valerie. We must be on the same wave length, because I did a tag of the same rhyme and then discovered it had to be a page. Great minds etc. The beautiful town of Kettwig ... would love to lose myself in it's streets. Have a great day. hugs, Donna

  7. Gee, I had forgotten about that rhyme. I wonder how many parents actually read nursery rhymes to their children these days! Kettwig is such a pretty place. Enjoy your day, it's raining cats and dogs here! Xx

  10. I think your crooked man is adorable, but of course, the crooked cat stole my heart. This was simply adorable and cleverly done.

    I adore the curved streets and sidewalks in Kettwig, but something I hadn't noticed before was how many of the windows had window boxes. Even though it's autumn, the flowers are still quite showy and beautiful, too. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

    1. Most people are very house proud and spend a lot of time and effort keeping their flower boxes and gardens beautiful.

  19. Gosh, I haven't heard of thought of that rhyme in years! I love your illustration for it - so wonderfully quirky and I love the little glimpses into all these beautiful German towns and cities that we get to see on your blog each week - the architecture is so much prettier than any of the modern stuff they build now.

  20. That little childhood verse has been going through my mind a lot lately as I've struggle to straighten up when my back is not willing too. Your page is adorable. I love the photos from your visit. Such a quaint little village and you know I love all of the flowers everywhere. I want some window boxes ♥♥♥
