Thursday this and that

Hi Everybody!

Our challenge at Art Journal Journey, winter wonderland, will be finished in a few days. Chrissie has done  wonderful job at hosting! And you still have time to join in!
I made another hybrid piece, combining the view from my window with a little fantasy, and memories of C.S Lewis' 'Narnia', one of the books that accompanied my childhood.




And I have been playing with my head and dipping it into a bath of marble colour - I am linking to 99 faces.


Some views from the Rhine:






Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  9. What a fun AJJ entry. I can't believe it's already Thursday in your world. The scene really speaks of cold weather and snow, too.

    The face is beautiful, and I really adore the lovely marbling you achieved. That was a fun treat.

    The first boat photos look like the boats were racing against each other. That must have been fun to see.

  12. So snowy and frosty and I like the way it is dark but you have lit up the scene with the street lamp.
    The seagulls look good again, perhaps they wait until you come along to get their photo on the blog.

Two fabulous pieces, I love the snowy scene and then those fun little animals especially love the dog and his cute hat.

  24. Your marbled head is fantastic and very creative. It reminds me of my own rattled at times. Your winter scene is another great one, I almost hate to see this theme end. Unfortunately I am not familiar with "Narina" and probably was too busy playing to read it as a child. Thanks for sharing your photos today.
    Hugs,
