Today I am sharing some things made this week for
hosted by Eva and Kristin.
I have been busy cutting stamps at my group again, so here is what I have been up to. They are just stamped on scrap paper, but I am looking forward to using them in journal pages etc.
I made 2 stamps with African women at my group, they are both about 8" high.
It's always exciting inking up self carved stamps for the first time:
This one is a a cat called Herbert. He looks a bit old and tired, perhaps just how I feel....The stamp is approx 3 x 3"
And now I have more photos from our trip to Burg Linn, a moated castle from the middle ages in a neighbouring town on the other side of the Rhine near here. You can see the first part of the photos here.
After walking through part of the beautiful grounds we came to the bridge over the moat to take us into the castle courtyard:
The clematis is blooming very early:
This evil tempered
dragon lady was guarding the entrance:
But she was magicked away and the way was then free:
The Romans had a settlement here in times predating the castle but there are lots of remains shown in the castle museum. On Sunday there were tents on the green where people were demonstrating various aspects of Roman life - defence tactics, games, food, cosmetics and armoury etc:
A miniature catapult:
I will show part three of the photos in my next post.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
