Hope you had a good day. I went to the museum again, as it
was a wet and windy day, and I wanted to see
the Otto Dix exhibition again - and
it is well worth looking at!
In the past few days I have been making beads from
paper and cloth, so I have some decorations
to hang onto journals and /or tags. I mostly used ribbon, rolled over a knitting needle and fixed with wire. Then I dipped the beads into various Frantage EPs and embossed them. The heat melded the layers of ribbon
together and gave a lovely effect. They are between 2 and 3 1/2". I added beads and bits and bobs of old costume jewelry:
This was a fun project. I am linking to altered eclectics, anything goes and allsorts challenge, anything goes.
The Otto Dix exhibition is called 'Der Böse Blick' -
The Evil Eye.
Otto Dix was one of the artists befriended by Mother Ey. His style is
known as the 'new Objectivity'.
Here are a few of his paintings:

Dr Paul Ferdinand Schmitt:
Nelly, his daughter:
And the little street named after Mother Ey is
just a few yards from the K20 museum:
I will show the rest another day!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
