December is here already, and that means it's time for a new challenge at
You can choose your own theme and colour scheme, but I do want to see some journaling on your pages. It can be handwritten, or stamped or collaged, or even added digitally;it can be short or long, but it should be there!
Collage is a great opportunity to get rid of all the scraps that have amassed in the course of the year, so let yourselves be inspired and link your wonderful creations at our blog.
For my DT piece I used a photo of a window overlooking London Bridge to which I digitally added my strange man and woman, and lots of bubbles. This was printed out and collaged to an A3 page. I then added various TH stamps, which were printed onto card, fussy cut and collaged, as well as the scroll, the ticket and 2 Umbrella men in black and white. My journaling was partly written and partly made with stick on alphas. I had big fun first making the digital collage, and then collaging it again to make a 'real' one.
At TIOT we are entering the second week of our challenge for gift bags or boxes. These little envelopes have been cut with a Sizzix die, stamped, and tied with baker's twine. These are filled with little gifts and will be presents for the postman etc. You still have a whole week to enter our challenge.
It's also time for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so a big welcome to all of the T Gang. At the Wednesday market by the Rhine we are tempted every week by this organic bakery. They sell the most delicious bread, rolls and cakes. Mostly I manage to resist the temptation, but last week it drew me in like a magnet and I found I was standing in front of the display, almost drooling. It would have been rude to just walk away, so I bought a slice of 'Berliner Brot', a dark and sticky cake with chocolate and hazelnuts, and very delicious.
Here you can see it in all its glory:
And I chopped it up into lots of slices, so help yourselves, enjoy!
My drink is, as always, cappuccino:
The Konditorei has decorated their window with giant gingerbread houses, all edible, of course - don't they look good?
The Optician's has a similar decoration, but I think it is not edible!
I will show my pieces for the other Tuesday challenges later in the week, the post today is already full enough!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
