Time is flying, and it's mid-week already.
I made another tag which I am linking to Go Tag Thursday -
use pink and to Tag Tuesday - heritage.
Some of you might be wondering what this tag has to
do with heritage? Bread is a recognised part of our
cultural heritage, and is a staple food of many world
cultures. The Unesco has acknowledged German bread
as part of its 'intangible' cultural heritage.
My tag has many layers once again, and I used a vintage
image of a lady in pink proudly carrying a loaf of bread.
I once again sewed the various layers together:
For Art Journal Journey, Hazel's theme of a
magical mystery tour, and Paint Party Friday, hosted by
Eva and Kristin, I have a mixed media A4 piece. The background was
gessoed, and painted with a mix of grey and madder. The moon was painted with ivory and silver acrylics. I added the figures using a
stencil. The eye stamp and 'Traumwelt' (dream world) stamps
are from LaBlanche. The town silhouette was also
stenciled. I added more colours with pastel chalks.
Here are more photos of the tropical room at the zoo:
The Strauss looked very indignant:
The pigeons evidently also find rich pickings at the zoo:
The HUGE tortoise is 121 years old:
The empty shell outside the tortoise house was not only popular
with kids who wanted to play....and no, that is not my backside
sticking out there!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
