Hope your week is going well. Time is flying by, as always - lots to do, uncooperative fingers that don't want to do anything, and so once again the dreaded housew*** has been the loser.
Today I am sharing the last of the tags I made for Wilma's 'rabbits and hares' challenge at Tag Tuesday. I am glad I always work well in advance, or I wouldn't have had anything for this challenge, or for next week, when I will be hosting. This was made with illustrations from the wonderful Mr Whiskers collage sheet:
This is another of the A3 ( 12 x 18")collages made at art group in past weeks.
I like working in this size better than with smaller pieces.
I started with a gessoed and painted background onto which I collaged and stitched various pieces of textiles and paper. The piece in the middle is parchment smeared with distress inks when I was trying out colour combos many moons ago:
The next layer was to collage scraps of TH tissue and paper napkins:
Then I added some colourful tissue pieces from Jane Davenport. I love how the substrate changes the texture and shows through. The last step was to add some colourful dots and spots:
The face looks rather ghostly over the black netting:
I love experimenting with pieces like this, not having any particular theme in mind, just playing. I am linking to Paint Party Friday
The Rhine is very full again, I hope we don't get too much flooding this time.
The stream leading to the Rhine is very full:
You can usually see the arch underneath the bridge, but it's filled up. In last year's flood the water went over the bridge:
Some enjoy the abundance of water:
Have a great day, take care,
ad thanks a lot for coming by!
