It's nearly weekend - enjoy!
For Art Journal Journey, Indian summer, and for Moo Mania and More, drips and splatters, I have a double mixed media page in my second 'new' journal, which is now nearly finished. The background was brayered with left over paint, and then sprayed and dripped. The images were stamped, and are from Lost Coast Designs and Artemio. I gave them some colour with water colour paint. The birds are from a Dina Wakely stencil. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday:
Last week I went on the tram again into the centre of Düsseldorf - not a place I really love - but I wanted to see how things are looking these days. The bridge here spans a stream which used to be part of the fortifications of the town in the old days. Now it flows through the middle of Königsallee, one of the most exclusive and ridiculously expensive streets in Germany. For anybody who has money to burn, this is the place to do it in style! But I do like the view along the water and the lovely statues:
The shops all have security inside and out so that the wealthy feel safe while spending their money there:
There are lots of restaurants where you can sit and enjoy your coffee at twice the price it costs anywhere else:
But I do like the lanterns, and the street has a lot of flair from the trees and the water:
The shops are mostly along one side, the other, quieter side is filled with banks, lawyers, insurances etc. I was recently asked if we had any big buildings here in the town - this is one:
I like the lion:
And the girl playing ball, from the beginning of the 20th century, is really beautiful:
Is this art? or a giant thing to hang coats on? Any suggestions?
But I do like how old and new has been combined here:
I will show the rest of the photos from my tour in the coming days!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
