Sagittarius - Skytten

 Click image to enlarge!
Sagittarius, my sign!

And I really love the beauty of cold winter. My problem is that when it is cold my camera are cold too and don´t reponds that well. The only photo in this journal is the ice-crystals below the moon. 


Stars or snow??? Or both?  Well, that´s up to you. 
The background is an A4 painting I did earlier. The ice is some window decorations I have. 
Sagittarius is from the net somewhere. Actually two images. 



One of my photos, Ice crystals altered in Topaz software. 


Glittering snow.
A painting on A4 paper I created a few years ago.

Winter wonders

The Star in Snowy winter!

There are not much snow outdoors but in my image files there are. This Journal is crested from three of my photos. The landcape, the deer and my grandaughters snowy hair. 
And a lot of digital work.

Wishing you the right amount of snow. Some wants a lot, others nothing. 
Myself I think 5-10 cm is perfect. Keeps nature beautiful.

The bell

 Click image to enlarge!
Cranes passing Fuji
For Our Midweek muse   Inspired by Japan

Ingemar, born 1925
He is my father, but he is no longer with us. 

Before he passed away he gave me this bell. He said that when he was a toddler my grandmother, Ingrid, did hang it around his neck. They lived on a farm and that was her way to know where he was. 
The sound of this bell is wonderful. Strong, yet brittle.


Ingrid, my grandmother. 

For TAD theme Bell



Crossing!

This weeks art. It is a small canvas. 12x18 cm Tempera paint and a   bit small pieces of coal and a little glitter.

Faces on wood

 Click image to enlarge!


Hi Nicole! I think this one is just what youre stylle. It's a wooden sculpture I have.
With many weird faces on.
I bought it in Lithuania many years ago. It is actually a candle holder
I think I will have to take more shots of it. This was the only angle I had.

Tilted pieces

 Click image to enlarge!

The collage in the green area was created on a Collage event at the Library. 
They had lots of gorgeous backgrounds one could use to cut and paste. Things I don´t have at home. 
It was quite fun. Also the fact of having company during the process. 
The rest was done at home and on the computer.

Good for using on the COLLAGE theme at AJJ this month.

Rain on TADs want´s Cup this week. 
It was quite fun to distort them. 


Nature fall items on a vintage paper
I thought the colors of fall fitted together. 


Finish off with a piece of rusty metall!

This morning was the first day I noticed it was almost freezing temperature. So when I go out today it will be fresh and lovely to breath. And I would not mind the slippery mud to get frozen. 
And, maybe a little snow?? To brighten up the dark days. Some snowflakes would keep me busy for a while.

AEDM o Journal

 Click image to enlarge!


Home made cupcake

Ingredients: Metall form candy cup, cottonwool, tempera color

For the 
Collage Fodder, Food and Drink, or Both
this month. 

I did not think I would create anything on this challenge but I have not made any of this type of Journal before so I thought I´ll give it a try! 

I used an A4 size of paper. Painted it and glued a part of a city map from my town on it. 
I had some tiny stickers of bakery and glued them, but the fun part was the cupcake. 
I have some small cups that I use for christmas candy and I put cottton in it and painted a 
little on top of it. 
Voila, a cupcake was born!

Then I was ready for some shots. 
😁😂😋
