I've just been watching the sun rise up through the
morning mist, and it looks like it will be a
beautiful Sunday, so hope your day will
be good, too.
Yesterday I was awake very early, as always, and had time
for some crafting before I went for my morning walk.
This mixed media tag is meant for Things with Wings, at
The background is part of a motherboard I made recently,
using the cardboard backing from a sketch pad, which was gessoed,
painted, sprayed and splashed - fun! I used some
three dimensional flower and insect stickers I
recently discovered in one of my many boxes, and put them
round a vintage image (LaBlanche). I added some lace and a
ribbon hanger, and fixed it all to the painted background.
This tag is for Sandie's Go Tag Thursday Challenge, where
the theme is stamps - either postage ones or rubber ones,
so I used both. The background image is from Gecko Galz
and has been mounted onto a piece of mirri-card. I added
a postage stamp, and then used some mail-art stamps. I sewed it
onto a piece of peeled cardboard which was gessoed and then
dipped in Utee EP.
These photos were taken on my walk to the Rhine
I love the fresh green of the pollard willows on the meadows:
I always enjoy walking through these tall trees:
The avenue of chestnut trees leads to the Ferry:
This tree at the 'Diakonie' is the loveliest one of all:
In the afternoon I met up with friends in the Altstadt (old town)
but more about that another time.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
