On Tuesday we are starting a new challenge at TIOT - Stencils and or die-cuts.
As always, projects of all formats are welcome, and you have 2 weeks to link to our blog. Hope to see you there.
I used both stencils and die cuts on my A3 mixed media piece. The background was painted using a mixture of gesso and cream and pink coloured paint used through a floral stencil. The birds were added with a Dina Wakley stencil, and the cat was made with a hand-made stencil. The embellishments are all die cuts cut from recycled calendar pages. The cat was painted with acrylics using a white marker pen for the details:
We are also half way through our steampunk / mechanical challenge at
Tag Tuesday. I made a hybrid tag, with a painted and collaged background and some digital additions from Mischief Circus. 'All time is precious' is a great quote, and we need to remember that time is a very precious commodity which cannot be recycled:
Tuesday is also time for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Group.
Last week I went for a meal at the Chinese restaurant with G & N, and afterwards we drove over to the other Rhine side. We discovered a nice cafe in the Yacht Club where we drank our afternoon coffee. N had a latte macchiato, G had an apple juice and I had cappuccino:
The view out of the window:
A lady was selling lilacs freshly cut in her allotment, and G bought N and me each a bunch of them to take home - they have such a heavenly perfume. Thanks G!
The coffee bike at the Wednesday market - I take my coffee down to the Rhine and drink it there:
I made this lemon cheese cake a couple of weeks back when we had a get together:
And I couldn't resist this dandelion, shining like a little sun:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
