Today we are starting a new challenge at TIOT
and our theme is
'I believe I can fly'.
As always, you have 2 weeks to create something and projects of all types are welcome.
I made a hybrid piece, using a vintage sign as background, a freebie man from Foxey Squirrel and some freebie wings.
Today is also T stands for Tuesday at Elizabeth's blog, so a big welcome to all the T Gang. My photo shows a wonderful cappuccino on one of the outside tables, complete with sugar with a zipper and the lovely cookie they serve with it. The weather has not been nice, but they hand out cushions and blankets if it's chilly:
The bell / clock-tower is on the other side of the square. Every hour the bells play a lovely melody, so it's nice to sit there and listen to it. I have my physiotherapy sessions in the house by the tower, on the second floor:.
I am taking part in a swap with a group of lovely ladies, and last week I received
my pages from Dianne, and they are really gorgeous. My theme is birds. She makes delightful water-colour paintings, and has used lots of fabric, too, with really pleasing results:
Isn't this quirky bird gorgeous?
And this page is really a masterpiece:
There is even cross-stitch embroidery on this piece:
The tag which accompanied the pages:
A beautiful Kandinsky card:
And last but not least, some goodies to use in my pages.
Thanks a lot for these beautiful pages which I will treasure, I am looking forward to seeing my finished book.
And for Art Journal Journey, maps, I made a journal page with Banksy's balloon girl (Stencil from Stencilry.Org, map from Wikipedia). Here I used the stencil to cut out the figure with a contrasting colour.
And I have a quote, which always consoles me:
Blessed are the cracked....for they are the ones who let in the light.'
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
