The week has disappeared in a flash, Autumn has lost all of its leaves and colours, and winter is greeting us with its cold blast.
For Paint Party Friday, and Art Journal Journey, inspired by autumn colours, I made an A3 mixed media journal page. The background of the middle part is a sunset photo taken here at the Rhine. I used my photo of the night watchman that I took in Kettwig, and here he is doing his rounds and checking that the stone lion (Dezinaworld) is feeling well. The clock is from Purely vintage designs. I think the quote is very suitable for the end of Autumn. I painted the surrounds with acrylics using matching colours and my scratchy brush.
Last Sunday I took more photos of the shop windows here, and I love the surreal feel of the views of the interiors and houses opposite at the same time.
My fave windows here show a shop which is having a sale before rebuilding, I love the dummies wrapped in brown paper. They ususally have a very staid and old fashioned window decoration, so I was happy to see this one.
This is the 'Conditorei', a baker and confectioner with a café, where you can buy wonderful cakes, biscuits bread etc:
Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
