On Tuesday we are beginning a new challenge at TIOT -
We want to see some stitching, real or faux on your work!
As always, projects of all formats are allowed and you have
2 weeks to link your creations to us. Hope to see YOU there!
I made an A4 mixed media piece, using collage and stitching
on a painted, stenciled and stamped BG. My great Auntie Fanny
was a seamstress and very skilled at embroidery and beading, too,
so I think it's good to use her photo here:
This is a hybrid version, as I want to make it my last entry for Jo's
'Poetry in Motion' challenge at Art Journal Journey, and would like to
thank Jo for all the lovely comments she left on my blog:
And I would like to remind you that you still have a week to enter
into Michele's 'Back to school' challenge at
Today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday party ,
so I would like to welcome all the nice ladies of the T Gang.
Last week when my cousins were here we had an art-museum day,
and went to an organic and vegan restaurant for lunch. We enjoyed the
good food, and sitting outside watching the world go by. My drink was
water. Some money from the sale of this water goes to provide
clean water for those who live where it is not normally
available, a dreadful scandal in the world today.
In case you'r wondering where my coffee is, I did have coffee before and
after my meal!
Last weeks postcards went to Chrissie and CJ. This week
there are 2 unique postcards up for grabs, both with pictures
I painted from photos. If you would like one, please put your name in
And some photos from out and about:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
