Today we are starting a new challenge at TIOT - book pages. I started out with a photo I took of one of my old books from the 18th century, a bound copy of the 'Thespian', a theatre magazine, which I placed onto an old indenture. Reading, or being between the pages of a book has always been my greatest pleasure since I learnt to read at the age of 3. I added some figures (Mischief Circus), and my flower painting. I made the images partly transparent, as the images we get when we are reading grow out of the words themselves in our imagination.
Projects of all formats are allowed, and as always, you have 2 weeks to link to us, so I'm looking forward to seeing you there.
For Art Journal Journey, nature's wonders, I made a page using 2 photos taken recently - the clouds shown 2 days ago, and an angel that has recently been replaced onto the roof of Schloss Kalkum:
Clouds, skies, rain and sunshine are great wonders, and I can happily do nothing except watch the skies for hours:
Love the blue flowers they have put in the window-boxes here:
Today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so a big welcome to all of the T gang. Here a photo taken from my seat at 'my' ice parlour:
And this is a cafe where I drank a 'coffee' last week when I was in town:
It looked good - but although it was rather expensive, it was tasteless, and the cookie tasted like it had been made from play-dough!
The spice bar cookies I made for my visitors were definitely better - go on, try one!
