The week is flying by again, and I never seem to get
everything done that I would like to do, but I suppose
that's what tomorrows are for.
I made a mixed media spread in my 2nd new journal. The background
was made with a piece of marbled paper made
some time back. I added Banksy's little girl with the
balloon using a stencil from Stencilry. org. The quote
fits well to the image, and is really true.
The birds were drawn with felt pens.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, Hazel's magical
mystery tour, and to Paint Party Friday
The mixed media tag made with recycled cardboard and scraps
is meant for Tag Tuesday, things with wings
You have until next Monday evening to
link your creations to us, and Joan is offering
a lovely prize:
Last week while walking through the park of the Diakonie
I noticed this tree, surrounded by a chain and three
stones carved with Latin words -
jubilate, floreat and crescat (rejoice, bloom, grow)
There's a date, too, (1887) perhaps when the tree was planted, but I
haven't yet found out why it was planted and decorated like this -
I will let you know when I have found the solution!
Love the colour of the blossoms:
The old cart hasn't fallen apart yet!
Another wonderful sunrise:
Yesterday I went for a walk to the moated castle of
Schloss Kalkum with some friends. We stood for some time and
watched this little nutria by the moat, as he held stalk after stalk in
his front paws and nibbled off the flowers, so pretty.
He was not at all concerned that we were standing there watching him:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
