On the 5th of each month we start a new challenge at More Mixed Media challenge blog. All of our challenges are anything mixed media goes with an optional colour choice, which is red for February. Projects of all formats, large or small are allowed, and as always you have 4 weeks to link to us. And you have the chance to win a prize!
I made a tag with a red lady. I started this tag years back and have now got around to finishing it. The face was drawn, the diamonds were stenciled, and I added sticky beads and some rub-ons as well as some ribbon. I am also linking to Wendy's black, white and red challenge at Tag Tuesday. I know there is some green on here, which Wendy doesn't really want. Sorry Wendy, just don't smack me on my fingers, they still hurt!
And I have another piece for Elizabeth's 'hearts' challenge at AJJ .
I took this face from Paul Klee:
And played with it in my graphic programme. I cut out the face several times and stapled the faces one over the other. I added the metal hearts to the eyes. It's fun just playing with art like this, to watch it changing and still, essentially, remaining the same. I have 2 other versions finished which I will show bit by bit:
We have had more wet weather, the Rhine is filling up, but today was cold and wet instead of warm and wet. The weather is not boring just now! But I still like wandering around in the rain, looking at the puddles and reflections and making the best of it all. I was asked this week if I splash in the puddles - yes! But only when nobody's looking!
