Today we are starting a new challenge at More Mixed Media. as always our challenges are anything mixed media goes, with an optional colour extra, which is yellow this month. You have 4 weeks to link to us, and entries of all formats are welcome. You can also win a prize. It would be great to see you there!
This time I had to think carefully, as I needed something which would also fit my theme of geometric shapes which I am hosting at AJJ. I painted an A3 sheet with gesso, which I textured with a swirl stamp while it was still wet. Then I used yellow and orange to paint over it. The circles were added with cosmetic sponges again. I stenciled stars and numerals onto the background, and added the floating ladies. Then I doodled more spots in turquoise and white and added some strips of washi tape. One of the circles was stenciled over with a clock. I have the feeling that we are all sort of floating through time and space just now, not knowing what the outcome of this crisis will be, a sort of suspended reality alone at home. Let's hope it will soon pass! I did some sewing on 2 corners to finish it off :
And to cheer myself up I looked at some of the bird photos taken in past spring-times on my balcony.
The magpie trying to hide:
The hungry woodpecker:
The beautiful jay:
The magpie again:
And the ever hungry wood pigeons:
The jay also has a very good appetite:
Some of the pics are a bit blurry as they were taken through the (not very clean) windows!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
