Hope your weekend was good, and wish you all a good
start in the new week.
I have 2 pieces to show today. The first is a hybrid piece using a face which was created by a serendipitous accident. I wanted to print one of my older faces onto tissue to put into a journal page, and then the tissue and the backing paper it was on got caught in the printer. I managed to pull it out, but it was wrinkled like a concertina, and then I saw that the face had changed completely, and I think for the better. I smoothed it out without taking away the folds and took a photo, which I then scanned into the computer and have used here. The background is one of my paintings. I digitally added the face and the moon - another of my photos, here coloured purple. The window and David are from Algeradesigns and the winged angel is a freebie from Itkupilli. I had fun saving this face and re-creating it to a new one, which I am linking to 99 faces and to Kim Dellow's Show your face.
This is face number 2, just 97 to go!
My blogging friend Teresa does a post every Sunday called 'Sunday's little Blessings', and she posts sentiments and/or beautiful little drawings which she generously gives as freebies. In this journal page for Art Journal Journey, inspired by autumn colours, I used one of her lovely word arts, so this is a big 'Thank you' to dear Teresa of Tickle Expressions.
The background is a brush-wipe page with several layers of colour scratched on with my scratchy brushes and stamped into the top layer while it was still wet. I added Teresa's sentiment, my moon and the silhouette with the herons. The birds are from Itkupilli, as is the golden crown.
I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, crowns.
The new railing to stop us falling into the Rhine is finished at last, and now we can walk the whole stretch again without let or hindrance, and the benches are back. It was even warm enough this weekend to sit on them.
I must admit I prefer the old and rather rusty railings round the castle ruins.
The flower shop is wonderful whatever the time of year:
I had a bad night again and was awake very early, but such lovely skies really make up for it:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
