Geometric shapes and Spring Feelings

Hi Everybody!

Today is the last day of my geometric shapes challenge at AJJ. It has been fun, and certainly kept me busy and happy producing pages and visiting all of you lovely people who joined in and made such beautiful pages. Thanks to all for your support and encouragement, and for all the nice comments you left on my blog.
Today I have a collage of all of the pages, or nearly all - I think I missed one or 2 and there are even 2 which I didn't get round to showing:

Today  Rain's art date theme is spring feelings, so I have a few spring like pieces made in past years. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday:

This is an altered photo:

To Daffodils

A poem by Robert Herrick
Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
You haste away so soon;
As yet the early-rising sun
Has not attain'd his noon.
Stay, stay,
Until the hasting day
Has run
But to the even-song;
And, having pray'd together, we
Will go with you along.

We have short time to stay, as you,
We have as short a spring;
As quick a growth to meet decay,
As you, or anything.
We die
As your hours do, and dry
Like to the summer's rain;
Or as the pearls of morning's dew,
Ne'er to be found again.

The photos were taken 2 years  ago at Burg Linn, a fairy tale castle on the other Rhine side, not far from here. And I will be visiting there again when 'Corinna' leaves us and we can wander freely again:

Hope you spring feelings are all bubbling over now!

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Midweek Post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well!
My challenge at Art Journal Journey  has just one more day to run. I have had fun playing with my theme of geometric shapes. Today I have an A3 piece with my fave Einstein. The face was stenciled with black acrylics onto white canvas-paper. I sewed it with zigzag stitch to red/white striped backing paper which was backed with white paper. The red/white paper was some wrapping paper from a present, which I ironed to make it flat again. I made a row of black and white zigzags and dots to finish it off. I like this one! And it's a good reminder for black, white and one other colour at TIOT:

I put it into a frame I got from a neighbour and will hang it in my kitchen when I get round to re-organising things:

The day started out cloudy and made me hopeful of rain:

Some photos of my walks in the past days:

 Coffee on the balcony is always a good way to start the day:

  My flowers are still doing well:

The birds get up early and wait for the sunrise:

And this afternoon it did rain for about an hour, so I pulled on my raincoat and went for a wet walk through the fields - lovely! When it rains everybody else stays home!

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
