WS: Umbrella


When I think of umbrella I think of Gene Kelly singing in the rain, Mary Poppins and an Indian elephant with an umbrella on top providing shade for the guests. I guess I watch too many movies, don’t I? Originally I wanted to do an Indian elephant, which I guess is put aside for next year. But I made some copies of some of my vintage photographs the other day and somehow this woman ended up on the page in my altered book … 🙂 Oh, and UMBRELLA is the new WS challenge. And I suppose I’m in a kitschig/cute mood since I made the other side of the spread, mushrooms are ideal umbrellas, don’t you think? And thanks sweet friend for more the fab opaque white Sakura gel pens. You know who you are!!! ***


Wenn ich an einen Schirm denke, fällt mir gleich Gene Kelly singing in the rain, Mary Poppins und ein indischer Elefant ein, mit einem Schirm obendrauf, der den Reitgästen Schatten spendet. Ich glaub, ich schau zu viele Filme, oder? Eigentlich wollte ich einen indischen Elefanten machen … der kommt dann wohl nächstes Jahr dran. Doch vor ein paar Tagen hab ich einige meiner Flohmarktfotos kopiert und irgendwie ist diese Frau oben auf dieser Seite in meinem altered book gelandet … 🙂 Oh, und SCHIRM ist die neue MS-Herausforderung. Bin wohl auch in kitschig/niedlicher Stimmung, deshalb gleich eine bunte Gegenseite, Pilze eignen sich ja bestens als Schirme, oder? Hab vielen Dank liebe Freundin für den Nachschub an den genialen weißen Sakura Gel Pens. Du weißt, wer Du bist!!!

  15. The amorphous black with polka dot background on top of the book is so interesting…..then the black polka dot into the umbrella…just a bit of pointilism is a feast for the eyes, the entire piece is. Look forward to sharing with my daughter, Isabella, (bella) when she gets home from school. You will inspire us both!
