All that glisters....

Hi  Everybody!

Time is flying, hope it's flying well for you!

Yesterday I made a 10" tag with Klimt's image of 
Adele Bloch-Bauer, which was featured in the wonderful
film 'Woman in gold'. I painted the tag with Maya gold in 
turquoise and used a CWS stencil to add the squares 
with pewter metallic paint. The image was fussy cut, and 
surrounded by gold leafing in various shades. I also used some
gold rip-off foil to add some more gold shine here 
and there. I doodled lots of swirls into the background
using  gold pen, and gave Adele a coat of liquid glass. I
sewed the layers together, and added 2 tag-embellies
(thanks Donna!).
I am linking to Simon Monday challenge, use a stencil,
and to Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.

And as I like the image, I had fun playing with it in my digital
programme, layering the images one over the
other to give this nice effect. The quote is, of course, from 
Shakespeare's 'Merchant of Venice':

And I have another tag using torn and sewed paper for
Tag Tuesday, Joan's theme of The beach:

And last but not least, some photos from my walks and/or

Saint Swidbert watching over his town:

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

Clouds and sunshine

Hi Everybody!
Hope your week is going well.

Today I have a hybrid piece, using a photo taken last week as the 
background. The face is one of my drawings, placed into
my digital programme. I added some flowers, embellies and a feather 
from Mischief Circus.
I am linking to Rosie's 'Circles' challenge at 

This little tag was made with leftover scraps which were flying about
on my table. I sewed them together and added the gull's feather
and the shells. I am linking to Tag Tuesday,  Joan's theme
of 'the beach':

Here in our little town there was a lot going on last week
for various festivals:

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

Tuesday T-Time mix

Hi Everybody!

This Tuesday we are starting a new theme on our
blog. Our lovely and talented Joan is hosting, and has chosen
a wonderful, summertime theme of ' the Beach'.
For my details of how to join in, hope over and have a look!

I made a tag using some scraps of paper saved from a
pack I got free some years back with a magazine.
I sewed torn paper  layers together to make the
beach, added a beach hut, a boat and the rather over-sized gull. I
left the wing-tips free so I could roll them to give more dimension.
The bunting was fussy cut and glued over a cotton thread.
Lastly, I sewed everything together onto some white
painted corrugated cardboard and  added the rickety fence.

For Go Tag Thursday I made a digital tag using
one of my heads filled with my version of Vincent's
starry night. The BG is a photo taken from my window:

Today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday,
so I would like to give a warm welcome to all of the
nice ladies of the T Gang. My drink today is
cappuccino shown in my mug of the day:

I made a Philadelphia coconut/mango cake last week and
forgot to take a photo, this one is courtesy Philadelphia.

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