Another week has run away and it's Friday already, time for Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin, and of course, it's always time for Art Journal Journey, hosted this month by our lovely Erika.
I made a hybrid page using a painting of the Egyptian god Thot which I
made last year. Thot was the god who appeared in the form of the ibis. He was the god of the moon, magic, writing, science/learning, wisdom and the calendar
- he had a lot to do! I find Egypt with its rich history, architectural treasures and fantastic art well worth a journey - a journey back into a distant, but very vivid past.
At Tag Tuesday this week our theme was 'only original' - no bought papers or embellishments. I used an 8" tag and painted it with a mixture of titan buff and yellow ochre. I distressed the edges with dark brown, and embossed some parts with Frantage old copper EP. The bead has been made from a scrap of painted paper, rolled with a quilling needle and tied together with gold wire, and also embossed with the same Frantage EP. The paper was some I painted and embossed some time ago. Here I cut leaves and petals out of it and glued them together to make an exotic plant. The centre of the plant was also made with a tiny scrap of the same paper, quilled and 'glued' together with EP again.
We have had a few days of wonderful weather, a great possibility to be out as much as possible and I enjoyed the beauty of spring:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
