Wednesday post

Hi Everybody!

Today I have another altered postcard from Ernst Barlach.
The original was a b/w postcard from the 1930s.
After colouring the card with portfolio oil pastels I mounted it
onto 2 backgrounds. The first was smooth craft card, the second
corrugated card. All materials were recycled. I used sewing to hold
 it all together. I am linking to Yvonne's 'colour in my world' theme






 And I have another tag for Wendy's Paris theme at


A beautiful sunrise:







The houses built on the old bastion (town defense wall):



Buddleia with butterfly:


My friends the horses:




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

  4. Your postcard is simply stunning. I love the colors and the sewing. Of course, i adore your Paris tag. It is a true reminder of Paris with the Eiffel Tower.

    I was thrilled to see those flower boxes sitting on the fence, and of course, the butterfly was out of this world. Even your horses look happy!

  6. That is a stunning postcard. I think if it was black and white you improved it greatly. And very cute Paris tag. I would love it to be spring time again-as long as we could skip most of winter. :) Gorgeous sky colors too. hope your week is going well. Hugs-Erika

  12. Haha Mann mit grüner Nase, köstlich dein Upcycle Barlach. Dieses frische Hellgrün zum satten Blau gefällt mir sehr, auch in der Hintergrund-Gestaltung. Das Paris-Tag sieht auch richtig frühlingshaft aus mit seinen zarten Farben, sehr schön. Schöne Fotos auch wiedermal, der Knaller ist das tolle Pfauenauge auf dem Sommerflieder,super gemacht.
    Liebe Grüße

    1. That's true, the days are getting shorter, the leaves are turning colour and there's an autumnal nip in the air!
