Time is running out....

Hi Everybody!
Hope your weekend was good.

Today is the last day of the time challenge at Art Journal Journey-
time is running out, but you still have one more day to join in.
If you come back tomorrow you can learn all about the new challenge for  September.
I have once again made a collage of all my time pieces from this month. I enjoyed the time theme, and want to thank Yvonne for being such a wonderful guest hostess this month, and for choosing such an inspiring theme. If you look at our Pinterest page (link on the right) you can see all the entries, and they make an impressive display.

This is the last of the pages I made. I used a brush-wipe page as my background, painted in the face and adorned her with all manner of clock and cog stencils. The quote is from Golda Meir.
I am also linking my face to '49 faces' and to Kim Dellow's Show your face

We had another hot and sunny day, which started off with a wonderful sunrise:

The farmer was out tending his fields accompanied by hundreds of gulls, eager to find goodies in the freshly turned earth. It reminded me of the pied piper of Hamlyn, but this time with gulls instead of rats.

They were queuing up over a couple of hundred yards

The rose hips are ripe

This container ship was so big that I could hardly get all of it on my photo

The traffic on the river keeps a lot of traffic off the roads, and that is good!

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

Faces and vintage vehicles.

Hi Everybody!

Hope your day is going well.

This is a TV doodle made a couple of weeks back, made for 'Time' at
Art Journal Journey.
I am also linking to Black and white at Moo Mania and More.
It looks like a frightening face, too, but I am NOT adding it to my 49 faces!

This face is also meant for 49 faces and Kim Dellow's Friday show your face.
This was one where a lot went wrong - the colours ran, because I forgot to put the rubber stopper back into my water brush, and as I also used a non-permanent black pen, it made a mess.  So the poor girl got a frustration-scribble-hairdo and that was that!

I like the colour swapped digital version better

And now, what do you think is?

Can you see it better?

'Elvis Presley's Cadillac Fleetwood is  resting here, but not in peace '

This was part of an art experiment started many years back, watching things revert to nature

The Cadillac is on the car-park of the 'Burghof'  (Castle Court) cafe, restaurant and Beer garden, next to the castle ruins by the Rhine. The other cars are rusting happily in the beer garden:

And this carriage (perhaps from Count Dracula?) is in the hallway

I discovered this car outside on the street, looks like someone's  been to a wedding. I love the reflections of the cobble stones:

Hope you enjoyed our trip to the beer garden!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by

From Dawn till Dusk

Hi Everybody!
It's weekend - enjoy!

For Art Journal Journey, time; 49 faces and Kim Dellow's Show your face
I have another mixed media A3 journal page. I gessoed the page,  drew and painted the face, the roses were stenciled using red structure paste, and the butterfly, clock and quotes were stamped. I sprayed some red and green round the edges.

I was up very early today, and sat watching the dark sky grow light and the sun rising - always a very beautiful time

The shadows  on the curtains

The midday sky

And the evening sky with the rising moon:

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