Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

Today I have another feathery piece meant for Neet's fur or feathers challenge at AJJ. It's  an A3 piece made with diluted acyrl colours and acryl ink, and some acryl pens for the dots:

Friday Post

Hi Everybody!

Today I have another tag to share for Pinky's challenge  at Tag Tuesday. There is still plenty of time to enter the challenge with the theme of  books and bookpages - hope to see YOU there!

For my tag an old dictionary page was used. The central image is Leonardo's beautiful Leda, one of my all time favourites!



This is a hybrid piece with a hand painted page in the background, a gauze heart in the middle, a photo of my balcony blackbird, and a cat which I coloured in. This is not something I like doing. The cat image was given to me by a friend who said he was so looking forward to seeing it done. So I did it, and it took such a long time! My fingers wouldn't be able to manage it these days! But I like this combination of things here:



I am linking to Neet's fur or feathers challenge at AJJ,  Nicole's FFO and to Gilena's Friday art fun.

Midweek Post

Hi Everybody!

Today I have a hybrid piece for Neet's fur or feathers challenge, and I'm happy to say that this time I have both on my page. The background is hand painted, the ladies are both lino cuts I made a couple of years back. The animals and tree are from Serif. The text is a hymn we used to sing in morning assembly at primary school, I'm sure others who went to school back in those times will know it, too:



I'm also linking to Rain'sTADD -harvest and food.




Some thinkies and funnies:





I will be back on Friday!

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

New Challenge at TIOT

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at TIOT and our theme is
EMBOSSING.
As usual you can use any medium you choose, as long as you follow the challenge theme.
 I made 2 mixed media tags and the flowers were embossed with structure paste through a stencil. I did a lot of sewing on the tags, my machine has been repaired! The sentiments are from Tim Holz:


If you put them together it looks almost like one piece!


As always you have 2 weeks to link to us and
We are looking forward to seeing what you make!

And we are also starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday. This time our lovely and talented Pinky is hosting and her theme is books/ bookpages. Pinky has made some wonderful tags for ispiration, do take a look, and I hope to see you joining in! This is my tag:

Have a great day, take care,

Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

Here's wishing us all a good weekend. We're still enjoying cool and rainy weather here, so lovely! 

Today I have the last (for now!) of my moon ladies, I need to start on new themes! This was once again hard to photograph because of the metallic paint I used. As always, it's an A3 sheet painted with acrylics:







When I showed this baby owl on my blog recently, Neet asked me if I could make one of my hybrid pieces using it. So here, specially for Neet, a journal page assembled from 2 photos, a mouse image and a digital frame. I am linking to Neet's fur or feathers challenge at AJJ:

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