Friday this and that

Hi Everybody!

Today I have a mixed media piece,  11 x 7". I transferred a
paper napkin image to a piece of printed craft paper, and sewed it 
onto  some corrugated cardboard. The embellishments were
also sewed on. I am linking to Art Journal Journey,
Yvonne's theme of 'Colour in my world' and to 

For Tag Tuesday, Paris and for Simon Monday challenge,
Stamptember, I made a tag. The images were stamped in three 
layers,  fussy cut, and then fixed one over the other with
foam squares. I used some distress oxides to partly colour the tag.
The stamps used are from Artemio, LaBlanche, Hampton Arts and 
Chocolate Baroque:

Some more photos from my walks along the Rhine
and through our little town:

Have a great day, take care,
and thank a lot for coming by!

  14. I love all the dimension and texture in your butterfly piece. Its beautiful. And Paris never looked better. :) I tell you, going back to work really cuts into art time for challenges. Ha-ha! :) Enjoy seeing yours and the photos of the area you live in to. It looks like a nice place down along the Rhine.

    1. I feel for you! I am not sorry that I don't work anymore!

  15. Oh! I love both pieces. I adore butterflies- and I think that TAG is gorgeous! Love the way they almost lift of the page. I have always wanted to visit Paris and you made me want to visit even more. :)

  16. Your nature inspired journal page is lovely, especially with the butterfly. Of course, I fell in love with your Paris tag. I never would have thought to combine those images like that.

    Beautiful town photos. I think autumn must be trying to creep into your area from the look of some of the trees. I also love those lamp posts with the peeling paint. Very atmospheric photos today.

  17. Gorgeous mixed media page, I love the sewing and the textures of the embellishments. The tag is beautiful too. Have a great weekend, Hugs xx
