Friday this and that

Hi Everybody!

Another week is flying by, and tomorrow is Paint Party Friday, hosted as always, by Eva and Kristin. I got some more stamps cut this week. This one is about 7" high - these were the 'first impressions' again:

This one is 6"

At TIOT our theme is still destinations - I have a hybrid piece using pieced-together photos I took of the Altstadt on a free map background:

And here is an old mixed-media journal spread that I reworked because the pages had partly stuck together. The Hebrew text reads 'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth'

Last Sunday I visited Hariksee (a large lake between here and the Dutch border) with my buddy G. It is a beautiful place to enjoy a quiet walk on a hot day:

T stands for This and ThaT

Hi Everybody!

On Tuesday we are beginning a new challenge at Tag Tuesday, and this time our lovely Wendy is hosting. She has chosen the theme of locks and keys, which is perhaps not my favourite theme but I tried my best to make a mixed media tag with them!

It is also half time at TIOT, and I made another hybrid destinations piece to remind you, using a cut out photo over a painted background and some elements from Serif:

Tuesday is also time for Elizabeth's Tea stands for Tuesday party, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T gang:

Last Thursday I went out for a meal to a Greek restaurant with my buddy G. I was so hungry that I forgot to take the photo before I started on the food:

This is G's meal:

We each got a side-plate of salad, and for starters we had warm bread with olives and Tsatsiki:

I drank a diet coke and G had bitter lemon:

After the meal I had an espresso, served with a chocolate coffee bean. This is the very best espresso I have had in years!

After the meal we went for a walk in the nearby park and enjoyed the sunshine:

 The Japanese Garden, a present from the Japanese people living in Düsseldorf, is always magnificent:

Can you see the gardener up in the tree?

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