Today we are starting a new challenge at TIOT - summertime.
As always, you have 2 weeks to link your creations to our blog, and all formats and styles are welcome - it should just showcase our theme. For more inspiration have a look at our blog and see the pieces made by the other 'girls' on the team.
I started with an A3 page which I brayered with gesso and small amounts of blue and pink acrylic paint. I added a sprinkle of glitter while the paint was still wet.The flowers, heron and dragonflies were collages with napkins, and the dance figures stenciled. One of the dancers was given a pink tulle skirt. The edges were stitched and the quote was added by hand. I am also linking to Erika's 'when it's hot' challenge at AJJ:
Today I have some more pics from my visit to Neviges, a very modern cathedral, dedicated to Mary. You can see the first installment here. The castle from the middle ages is near Neviges:
The brutalist architecture of the cathedral is not everyone's taste, but very impressive:
The rose is the symbol for Maria :
Some of the older buildings in the town:
The cathedral looks like a mountain in the background:
I will show more pictures of the wonderful interior in my next post.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks for coming by!
