Hope your week is going well. We have had some cold weather this past couple of days, but today the sun is shining and I am looking forward to getting out for my morning walk. Thanks to all who asked about my fingers. They're still very painful, and I am trying to type with 2 fingers of my left hand and my right thumb - a bit slow, but it works!
For Paint Party Friday I have another A3 (18" x 12") mixed media collage. I started off with a mop up page onto which I had scribbled a bit with water colours. Then I added some textile scraps and did some background sewing before collaging it with scraps of TH tissue and Jan Davenport tissues. I love the textures from the underlying textiles. I finished it with 3 rows of crazy stitching round the edges. I am a bit frustrated just now as I have several other things I would like to get on with and can't, but I suppose I should be happy that I have a pile of finished pieces to show:

I am also linking to Simon Monday Challenge, play with paint.
And I have another tag for our 'Birds, nests and eggs' themes at Tag Tuesday. Once again I used a painted and textured background onto which I collaged some rusty die-cuts. I often see rusty bikes and objects in people's gardens, filled with flowers, so it inspired this tag, where the chicken is nesting here. The birds were drawn with a Dina Wakley stencil. I used twigs and dried grass fibres for the nest:

That's all for today! Have a great one, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
