This week is flying past quicker than I can think!
For Susi's theme of collage at Art Journal Journey I made a mixed media collage while Sabine was visiting me on Tuesday. I used the cardboard from the back of an A3 paper pad as a substrate. I gave it a quick coat of gesso and then glued on everything I could find on the table - images stamped onto tissue paper, pieces of gelli prints, magazine cut outs torn into strips and some pieces of a paper doily. When it was dry I gave it a coat of diluted gesso mixed with some pastel colour to bring it all together. The top layer was made with photos cut from the art museum's prospect. As faces are not allowed at AJJ this month, I pasted some text over each face and drew and doodled some arrows. Then I scanned it into my digital programme, and added the text digitally.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.
This was before the digital frame was added:
When I visited the K20 art museum last week I took some photos of the entrance, and of the huge photos they have on display showing all three museums that belong together:
Here they had just steam cleaned the stone floors, which gave the photo a rather misty look:
There are quite a few sculptures there. These are from Max Ernst:
This one is from Alexander Calder:
I took this pic of Sabine, while we were enjoying some playtime
in my arty kitchen:
And the weather was kind to us, so we also got out for a walk. We had a fun day
together, so I am hoping she will come again soon!
These fun mosaics are on a wall here.

And nature is, as always, the best artist:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
