Season of mists....

Hi Everybody!

We had a cold night here, and the morning started off with
an icy mist, but it was wonderful to watch the sun rising though
it, and later to see the wisps of mist blowing across the Rhine.

For Art Journal Journey, Indian summer, I have a quick and simple spread in my 2nd New journal, with a painted background and stamps from Seven Gypsies and unknown.

It's strange looking out of the window and seeing that the world has
been swallowed by the mist:

The sun rose up though the mist, it looked rather spooky:

Down at the Rhine the wisps of mist were dancing over the water:

This seagull was making  a noise about something:

The people I spoke to were all delighted with the strange and misty

I watched the leaves spiraling slowly down from the trees:

I am happy I was able to take photos of the lovely morning!

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

Walking in the rain and enjoying it

Hi Everybody!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Today I had pumpkin soup for lunch, so I am showing a hybrid pumpkin 
page to go with it. I am linking to Art Journal Journey, Indian Summer.

The past couple of days were cold, wet and windy, so I walked through 
the rain and enjoyed seeing the autumn colours:

The mist seems to suck up all the colour:

We needed the rain, the water in the Rhine is very
low, so I'm not complaining. Today was dry and I 
hopped on a tram and went looking for the middle ages
in a neighbouring town, but more of that another time

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

This and that for the weekend

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - enjoy!

For Art Journal Journey, Indian summer, I have 2 pieces today.
The first is a hybrid piece, using a painted, stamped and dripped background,one of 'my' faces and some digital elements:

The second piece was made using leftovers in my 2nd 'new' journal. I die cut leaves from a sheet of painted and stamped paper, and found the pieces which remained too good to throw away, so added some doodling and stamping and made them into this simple spread:

I am also linking to Paint Party Friday

Last weekend I visited Duisburg, a neighbouring town again.
This sculpture is called 'Hommage à Mercator' and was made by Friedrich Werthmann:

I discovered lots more fragments of the mediaeval walls and towers:

This sculpture is in a fountain, which wasn't working because of street works:

This seems to be another piece connected to Mercator:


I loved this statue- 
looks like someone very tired after a long day out shopping:

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