Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Today we are starting a new challenge at More Mixed Media Challenge Blog. Our themes are always anything mixed media goes, this time with the optional twist of using pastels. As always, you have 4 weeks to join us, and Lozzy always offers prizes and badges, so hop over and see what's going on!
I made a tag, also meant for my 'add a sentiment' challenge at Tag Tuesday
I used some designer paper with bird print for the background, just adding the sentiment and some die-cut feathers and stars. It was mounted onto some kraft paper, stitched. and then all tied up with some baker's twine
My second piece is an A3 journal page meant for Erika's challenge at AJJ, 'when it's hot'. Cool colours are then my faves as I am not a big hot-and-sunny fan. I painted the background with a mix of blue and green over gesso, and then splattered some colour on top of it. I saw an article in our local newspaper, the Westdeutsche Zeitung about summer trends, so cut out the picture of the girl and the trends - huge sunglasses, golden milk ice cream and bandanas as Corona protection. And if you want to be really 'in' you need to wear a belt bag strapped round your body....I'll stick to my satchel! I drew the ice-cream cone, fussy cut the glasses and found some other 'odds and sods', as we say in my homeland, for embellishments. Some crazy stitching finished it off nicely:

An afternoon walk through the fields behind the house:
The teasels are bigger than me:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
