Hi everyone, I've had a bit of a week! Fortunately I have been able to get into my craft room for some quiet time and……. FINALLY, I have all but the last few remaining photos to get off my phone camera and that will be a lot less to think about!
We had to change some of plans this week for various reasons that I won't go into (it is in my calendar journal though if you look at the beginning of next month)
I have made another page for Elke's Theme -Landscapes of the Soul at AJJ.
I don't think I am alone in sometimes feeling that I am not really the age I am - the girl is still in there!
That doesn't mean I am dwelling on the past, although my mind is full of thousands of memories. Far from it, it's just that some days I still feel and think the same as I did when I was a lot younger. I suppose what I am saying is……Oh! I don't know…I'm rambling….again!!!
My page started with a piece of mop up tissue stuck to the page, when it was dry I rubbed some brown inks over with a sponge.
I added some stencilling and stamping and some white marker.
The Gibson Girl (one of Artistic Stampers set 1 taken from the early 20th Century drawings by Charles Dana Gibson)was stamped onto a piece of scrap paper to represent the girl in me!
I mounted her onto a piece of an old tag that I tore the top off and added some scraps that I had around from testing a new(to me)Crafty Individuals stamp.
The words were written onto tissue paper(one of Susi's tips) and stuck on with Multimedia gel.
Seeing as I now have more photos on my computer I can show you a few more!
You may remember a visit we took to Formby Beach with my son and Grandchildren to see Anthony Gormley's 'Another Place' - if you didn't the pics are here.
I was delighted to find some of his iron men in Bordeaux to celebrate the fact that there is now a high speed train link with Paris
This is the same man from a different angle - taken just before hit the deck!
They are 16 all over the city - we saw a few more in the distance but didn't get close enough to get a clear shot (wish we had now!)
I have more art to show you from Bordeaux when I catch up on my travel photos!!
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for looking, Chris
