New Challenge at Moo Mania and More

Hi Everybody!

Today we are beginning a new challenge at Moo Mania and More -
Floral.
Projects of all formats are welcome, and you have 2 weeks
to link your creations to us - hope to see you there!

I used recycled cardboard (14x18cm), which I peeled and painted white. I added scraps of vintage written and printed paper and some gilding flakes. The images were cut from a prospect, and the flowers were also recycled from old decorations. I found a scrap of white jute and a few fibres which the bird can use to build its nest....





My apartment faces east, but in the evening the setting sun peaks over the rooftops and lights up the trees and clouds:





And the gibbous moon was bright in the sky:



This morning the sunrise was beautiful again:



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

  6. I was getting ready to upload today's recycled project when I saw your beautiful FLORAL entry. Great minds think alike. I love, love, love this entry (you'll see why once I get mine online), and the bird really speaks to me.

    Your sunrise and sunset photos are superb. I am always in awe of what comes out of your camera!

  8. I was thrilled to have read your post and was able to include Moo-Mania and More in my entry because of YOU. I was even thinking of you when I created the cardboard heart.

    The bird is known as a red-breasted American robin. I found this on the internet which shows it:

    These birds are singing and playing all over my yard, as well as the strip of grass between my neighbor's and my driveways. Personally, I think mine are more colorful.
