Today we are starting a new challenge at TIOT:
-use your leftovers-
As always, you have 2 weeks to link to us, so dig out those bits and bobs that are waiting to be used, make something with them, and link to us at TIOT. And please tell us which leftovers you have used.
We're looking forward to seeing you there!
I had a leftover strip of painted paper, 9" by 3". I chopped it into three equal pieces, and painted the flowers with water-colours. When they were dry, I drew the outlines with black ink, and added some random stamping. The black matting was cut from an old calendar, 1/4 inch larger than the mini paintings. I cut some small cards from cream coloured cardstock, glued everything together, and now have three pretty little cards, ideal to accompany a present.
Here all three standing in a row.
Today is also T stands for Tuesday and the second on the second at Elizabeth's blog, so here a big welcome to all of the T gang.
I have combined both challenges here, and am showing a cup of cappuccino from several months back, and my wonderful pineapple upside down cake from last summer. The cup and saucer here is bone china with a gold rim, and was part of my Mum's 'best' service.
I LOVE this sort of cake, and it tasted so good......
Hmm, look at that brown, caramel edge.....
Go on, take a bit, enjoy!
For Art Journal Journey, nature's wonders, I used a photo series of the beautiful blue jays who always visit my balcony. They have such a funny way to hide behind the flowers and then peek through to see if the coast is clear....
I used a painted background, and put the photos into a digital film-strip:
On Sunday I had a long walk to a neighbouring district and back along the Rhine, and enjoyed all the wild flowers growing there:
It started to rain while I was out, but I had my 'Knirps' - a small, folding umbrella, so that was okay. In the afternoon it really poured, but I was
high and dry at home, and just watched it from the window:
In the evening the clouds caught the last rays of the evening sun:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
