On Tuesday we are beginning a new challenge at
🌻In my garden🌼
As always, projects of all formats are allowed, and you have
2 weeks to link your creations to us. Hope to see
I made an A4 mixed media piece. The background was painted,
sprinkled with brushos and sprayed with water. After it had
dripped and dried I added the main image using a paper
napkin sent to me by Yvonne. The birds and diamonds were
stenciled, and the quote hand-written. I am also linking to Jo's
'Poetry in Motion' theme at Art Journal Journey.
Our 'use your scraps challenge at Tag Tuesday runs
for another week, so hope to see you joining the use-it-up-
scrappers over there. I used a scrap of hand-painted paper for the
background, and some black paper from a recycled calendar for
the matting. The image, lace, beading, Victorian scrap and ribbon were
all in my scrap boxes. I added the rose and the die-cut word. I think the
image is from Gecko Galz:
Today is also Elizabeth's weekly T stands for Tuesday party, so here
a hearty welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T gang.
I have another postcard to give away this week, so if you would like to get it in your mail-box, please tell me in a comment, and I will pick a
name out of the hat if it's more than one. Last week's card was
won by Erika, and it is on its way:
Recently I visited Duisburg, a neighbouring town with a lot of
interesting industrial pieces, reminding of the town's industrial past.
Duisburg has the largest river harbour in the world.
Most of the ships that chug up and
down the Rhine and pass our little town have come from,
or are on their way to the harbour there.
I needed to warm up and dry out, and
found a nice cafe to drink my cappuccino:
In the harbour:
There are lots of sculptures there, too:
This wheel was HUGE:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
