On Tuesday we are beginning a new challenge at
Her theme is 'back to school', and many pupils and teachers
world wide will be preparing for this right now.
As always, you have 2 weeks to link to our challenge, and
tags of all formats are welcome. And I chose a winner
out of the hat for the last challenge- you'll have to look at the
TT blog to find out who it is!
For 'back to school' I made a tag using large alpha
stickers from TH, which I (re)discovered when I recently
cleared my table. The little girl, who is not looking very happy,
is probably thinking about all she will need to do at
school. I gave her a bright, yellow crayon to cheer her up.
She was fussy cut from a Gecko Galz sheet and varnished.
The edges were sewn.
Tuesday is also time for Elizabeth's Tea stands for
Tuesday party, so welcome to all the nice ladies from the tea gang.
Today I am sharing a journal page made for Jo's 'Poetry in Motion' challenge
at Art Journal journey, For this page I tried a new (to me)
technique of making skins using Saran wrap and an iron, which gives
you a transparent image which can even be sewn, as you can see here.
I saw the ad for this beer in a magazine, and thought it would be good
for this theme, as I know Jo loves brewing and drinking beer.
(I'll stick to coffee and cola!) The background here was painted and
crackled, making it look nice and grungy. The text is from G.K. Chesterton (author of 'Father Brown')
I baked a banana bread at the weekend, yummy, help yourselves to a slice!
This postcard is up for grabs this week. I think we all need some peace in the world just now. Last week's card went to
Kathy in Ozarks. Please tell me if you would like to be entered into the
draw for this week's card!
Here are the last photos from our outing last Wednesday. We visited
the little village of Lank near the Rhine:
I just love this shop's name!
Love this fountain with the bronze figures of market
life in bygone days:
I thought this might be interesting for the T gang ladies from Missouri.
The text says:
In memory of the many emigrants who lived in the area known as
Meerbusch today. Between 1835 and 1865 more than 300 people
left their homes because of the difficult times and settled in
Loose Creek, Westphalia, Frankenstein (County Osage) and St Thomas.
They have kept their local German dialect up to this day.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
