New Challenge at More Mixed Media

Hi Everybody!

On the 5th of the month we are starting a new challenge at
As always, our challenges are anything mixed media goes,
this month with optional red. As always, you have 4 weeks to link to us,
and I am looking forward to seeing what you create.
 I made an A3 page, the background was brayered with gesso mixed with a little red. I used a roll stamp to add some BG text, and then pasted part of a serviette (thanks G!) to add more interest . The figures and birds were
stenciled with black ink, as was 'dreams'. I am also linking 
to Simon Wednesday challenge, anything goes.





A beautiful sunrise:


And our Sunday surprise - snow and icy temps!




Never had snow on my marigolds before!


Snowflakes in a spider's web:





 I'm having internet problems today, so want to get this scheduled before it disappears again!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  2. I love the silhouettes of the birds like dreams taking flights. Cold here, no more snow, but snow still on the ground. Oh, the poor marigolds. Hope they don't freeze. Stay warm.

  16. Those plants must wonder what's going on. I am sure they believed it to be spring. And I am loving your mixed media piece today. That is a gorgeous napkin and it makes such a beautiful spring page...we could all use that now-probably your marigolds more than anything. :) Happy new week. Hugs Erika

  18. Your dreams may well come true now that you have created this fabulous mixed media entry. It is beautiful. Those stencils are fabulous.

    Were it not for the lone leaf in those first photos of the snow and ice, I would have thought these were black and white photos. Such cold, snow, and ice mixed in with the beautiful flowers I hope survive this latest cold spell.

  25. So artsy and pretty! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge! Beautiful colors and design. Well done!

  26. Sehr schöne Seite mit dem hübschen Servietten-Motiv, den pinken Schriften und Spritzern. Mir gefallen die schwarzen Silhouetten-Motive als Kontrast dazu sehr gut.
    Deine Fotos sind auch wieder sehr gelungen, besonders die verschneite Calendula find ich gut. Meine Calendulas haben erst spät im Herbst angefangen zu blühen und waren bis vor 2 Wochen fit. Nun friert es und sie halten Winter-Ruhe.
    Liebe Grüße
