For Michele's challenge at our Tag Tuesday, with the
theme of animals, I made a triptych of animal
themed mixed media tags with an African feel.
I found this painted background under many layers
on my table, which I cleared off this week. (Yes!) I chopped it into
3, added the motives with stencils and black paint,
and highlights with my sakura pen. The middle one got
some added rusty diamonds so I could play with my new
goodies again. They each measure 9 1/2 x 4 1/2"
I sewed them onto some recycled black card.
And you still have till Monday evening to join
the challenge, for which a prize is being given.
Yesterday I visited a children's farm in Neuss - an old farm, made into a
petting zoo/ museum/park. A friend was kind enough to drive me there,
the weather was good, and we spent several hours meeting all
the animals. The peacock was the first one we saw. He lives with his
'harem' in an enclosure, which they share with a few very pretty ducks.
It was hard to get photos as the wire fences blocked the view a bit,
and I had to poke my camera through the holes:
Isn't this duck gorgeous?
And I even got a feather that was on the floor!
More photos of the animals and the rusty, old implements and
toys and household goods etc
will follow in the coming days, so watch this space!
Needless to say, I had a wonderful time,
and big thanks to G for taking me there.
Have a great weekend, take care,
and thank a lot for coming by!
