Summer Blues


My altered book collage for the new “Autumn Colours” challenge at WS. I love Autumn and all the warm colours mother nature delights us with. So I really don’t feel that way, unless it rains too much… Used my handcarved stamps in the background. Added some digi contrast in the version below. Really like it! ***


Meine Altered-Book-Collage für die neue Herausforderung “Herbstfarben” bei den MS. Ich liebe den Herbst und die warmen Farben, mit denen uns Mutter Natur entzückt. So fühle ich mich nicht wirklich, es sei denn, es regnet zu viel… Hab meine handgeschnitzten Stempel im Hintergrund benutzt. In der Version in der Mitte hab ich digital die Kontraste erhöht. Gefällt mir total!

  15. Belinda, what a treat to watch the Nigel/Vivaldi clip…thank you! What great talents God gives to men & women…its fabulous to hear & see. I enjoyed seeing your collage too…the intense colors are rich and interesting…and why does your little girl look sad…because she lost one of her wings? I LOVE the wing colors…beautiful! Your background using your hand carved stamp is wonderful….I must try that someday!

  16. I absolutely love both versions of this piece. The colors are just awesome and that little boy is just heartwarming. Nigel Kennedy is something pretty special himself. Thanks for reminding me.

  28. You have captured my mood exactly! Actually, I am feeling better than I was when I wrote my last blog post. Too bad we can’t just digitally alter ourselves like you’ve done in these pix—click the mouse and “voila” the blues are now bright and orange! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I just sent you an invite to a new flickr group that I started for Gothic Arches. I am hooked on this shape. Hope you will join and share your fab arches. You are the one that got me started with this shape!!!

    I wish that you could spend time at B&N with me too. What fun we could have!! Maybe next time you are over here we could make plans to meet. Are there no B&N in Lux??? Sorry for the long comment—next time I will e-mail!
    -hugs, shari
