The weekend has gone by in a flash.
Have a good start in the new week!
For Art Journal Journey, inspired by autumn colours, I made an A3 mixed media page. The central image is from Alfons Mucha, I love his colourful and vibrant work. The background was painted with yellow and orange, and the surrounding leaves and flowers were stenciled and then edged with gold. The quote was collaged. It proved really true this year, until last week it was like spring, but the mild temperatures have now been blown away by icy winds.
For our private challenge, 99 faces, I made a hybrid page. The background is a photo taken from my balcony and an old family document. The moon is also one of my photos. The eye and head-profile are my drawings. The eye is looking straight ahead, but I wanted to do it like the old Egyptian sculptures, where the eyes, even when seen from the side, are shown from the front view. The little cherub is a freebie from Freubel's Freebies.
The pictures are from my Saturday walk. The sky was full of clouds, which often looked threatening, but it stayed dry.
The first of the Christmas decorations have gone up here, and one of the shops had a special Christmas booth in front on Saturday:
The Christmas market is already in full swing, with tempting aromas coming from the grilled sausages, potato cakes, Glühwein (mulled, spiced wine) and other tasty things on sale.
Plenty of 'Lebkuchen' (Gingerbread) and burnt almonds, too.
A roundabout for the kids:
And lots of gifts to buy:
Our market is very small here, but there is plenty of
opportunity to spend money anyway!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
