Happy Everything

Hi Everybody!

I would like to wish all those celebrating this weekend a happy Passover
and /or a happy Easter:

The 2nd of the month is Elizabeth's 2nd on the 2nd where we re-show stuff from previous posts, so I will be linking to her blog when it's time. These pieces were both made in April 2015. The first is a mixed media using acrylics, brushos and a stencil from

The 2nd piece is a semi-abstract piece, made by just pushing colours around, and with some birds and trees doodled in:

The weather here seems to be leaning towards spring with warm days still being interspersed with cold and wet ones:

Loved this crack in the wall:

Last week when we wandered along the Rhine, G broke off some twigs, which I placed in water. Now I have spring blossoms at home:

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

Collage and more

Hi Everybody!

Tomorrow it will be time for Paint Party Friday again, the days are flying by, as always. I managed to clean off my craft table this week, and I threw away a huge amount an small scraps and things which I sorted out. I also weeded out a big bag of stamps, which I will take to the thrift shop. Some of the scraps and papers I 'saved' were worked into this very large collage, which is almost A2. The text around the edges reads : Life is a patchwork of ideas, colours, images, people, sounds, languages and much, much more. Each of us will leave his imprint on the earth, as did the generations before us, and our footprints will be trodden by those who come after us.
I am also linking to Simon Wednesday challenge, anything goes

And I have a hybrid tag for Wilma's challenge, 'Diamonds are forever' at Tag Tuesday. The background is part of a painting made a couple of years back, and the diamonds were sprayed using a digital air-brush:

 Some photos from my balcony and from the Rhine:

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

Mid-week mix

Hi Everybody!

Well, we had a couple of days of spring, and seem now to be back in the cold, wet and windy weather, although it's not as cold as it was last week. We live in hope!

Today I am sharing another page in my family journal, using a photo of my 3 eldest siblings, taken in 1943 at a wartime rally, 'Wings for Victory' in Trafalgar Square.It must have been a hard time for many families. So many were bombed out, living out of suitcases and sleeping in shelters.
My aunt wrote on the back 'Three cockney sparrows'. I used elements from me, Mischief Circus and Serif:

And for Wilma's 'Diamonds are forever' challenge at Tag Tuesday I have another tag with bling:

A beautiful sunrise:

 Out and about in the park and along the Rhine:

The flowers always bloom in winter:

The heron just caught a mole:

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