Hope your week is going well!
We're having mixed weather here this week, but I still manage to get out for long walks, thank goodness for raincoats and wellies!
On the 5th of each month we start a new challenge at More Mixed Media challenge blog. Our themes are always anything mixed-media goes, this time with optional yellow. You have 4 weeks to link to us, and there are prizes and badges offered to the winners.
I made an A3 mixed media piece. The background was painted and textured with pink and yellow acrylic paint and then collaged with various scraps of tissue and fabric, some of which were decoratively sewn on and stitched. The dancing ladies and the 'dance of life' were added with a stencil girl stencil that I recently won at Simon Says. The pink text was decorated with some black dots.The coloured dots were added with a no-name stencil. The tissue pieces are from Jane Davenport. I added the found feathers and some rows of stitching round the edges. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday and to TIOT, use a stencil or two.
Recently I took a walk down to the end of the road where I live, looking at the houses, points of interest and gardens:
There are still a lot of these wayside crosses here:
I prefer these old houses to some of the modern ones:
This house has a little shrine next to it, it is being restored just now:
The road leads to a track through the fields, with a little farm on the right:
A headless chicken:
This is the same stream that flows by the house I live in:
Another pretty, old house:
And the entry to the garden centre:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
