Today we have a new challenge at Moo Mania and More - embellishments.
As always, you have 2 weeks to enter, and projects of all formats are allowed, not just 'moos', so get embellishing and link up to us!
I made another face, also meant for Art Journal Journey, time. I used a clock photo which I digitally lightened for the background, and added it to an A3 sheet which had been prepared with gesso. I drew the face, stamped the flowers and clocks (LaBlanche), and coloured them with water colours and Gelatos. I drew in some leaves, and stenciled the vines. I added a textile leaf with a metal clock as embellishments, threaded onto a golden neck-chain. The 'ever changing' stamp is from Unity, and the clock hand on the leaf-earring is from Paper Artsy. I am also linking to Stamps and stencils, time flies, Mix it Monthly, mixed media flowers, and Kim Dellow's show you face.
This morning there was a thick mist outside, obscuring all except the first trees.
I very much enjoyed watching the sunrise, seeing the mist float away as the sun got stronger, and the beautiful colours. Somebody asked if I set my alarm to wake up for the sunrise - no, nothing so elaborate, I just can't sleep.
Thanks a lot to those who helped naming the plant I showed yesterday - Patty was the first with the answer - it is a purple loosestrife, the Latin name is lythrum salicara, and the German name Blutweiderich. It is a medicinal plant with healing properties. Lots of others sent information about the plant, too, most interesting to read - thanks to you all!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by.
