Almost Friday already

Hi Everybody!

Another week has flown by and it's almost weekend,
and time for Paint Party Friday.
I'm also linking to Art Journal Journey, Yvonne's lovely theme
of out and about.
I'm sharing another piece made this week at
art group. Our theme was 'GlĂźck' - happiness.
I made an A3 mixed media collage, inspired by the
view from my window, which always makes me happy. 
The BG was gessoedand painted, as was the sun. 
I added more colours with
pastel chalks. Picasso's woman and the world were
collaged.





And some photos of this warm and spring-like week:
















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

This and That on Wednesday

Hi Everybody!

Hope you are all well and fit. We are still enjoying warm, spring
days with blue skies and blossoms bursting out everywhere,
a beautiful season indeed.

This A3 mixed media piece was made at my art group. I painted the BG with gesso and sand coloured paint, which I textured with a brayer. The tulips were added with a napkin, and the dots and spots with a stencil and crapp red. 
The German text means: The two  things which give 
the soul the most strength  are trust in the truth and trust in one's self.  
I am linking to Paint Party Friday and Art Journal Journey
Yvonne's lovely theme of out and about.




Blue skies along the Rhine:



Flowers everywhere:



We had some great sunrise scenes this week, and my fave is
always the half hour before the sun goes up -a great time
to drink a cup of coffee and watch the beauty unfold:










 Being outside is really a joy just now:




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

TSFT, Tiot and more....

Hi Everybody!

Tuesday is Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday party,
and we are beginning a new challenge
at TIOT - Botanical.
As always, projects of all formats are welcome
and you have 2 weeks to link up your creations -
Hope to see lots of you there!

At Tag Tuesday - birds and nests - you still have a week
to join us!

For TIOT I made a mixed media spread in my 2nd new journal. 
The background was gessoed, and the rest stenciled 
and collaged. I added more colour with oil pastels
and a Dyelusions quote:




I am also linking to Simon Monday Challenge, things with wings.

Here I would like to welcome all the nice ladies of the
T Gang.
Last Tuesday I went on a little outing to a chocolate
shop in the old town. They serve drinking
chocolate in all variations in a Paris-type
bistro-cafe, and there is a second room where they
sell delicious chocolate specialities to take home -
truly a little paradise on earth!









A chocolate fountain:



'Give in to your longing for chocolate without complexes
or false shame. Remember, no sensible human being is
without a spark of madness'



I had a white chocolate flavoured with espresso:


My neighbour had milk chocolate with peppermint:



'Chocolate is a feeling of happiness which is touchable, 
understandable and above all edible'



Hope you enjoyed your little outing with me!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
