Skyline and Circles

Hi Everyone!
I am back with you, having been MIA for a few weeks. 
I have been on a couple of trips- to Berlin, accompanying my 
husband to a conference, and to Cyprus, celebrating our 30th 
wedding anniversary. Berlin is an amazing city, full of history and
has a great vibe.  If you want to see some photos you can find them 
on my blog here .We used to live in Cyprus, and we also had our
 honeymoon there,so it was a trip down Memory Lane!I will post
photos of Cyprus on my blog soon.


For my Skylines tag, I did a simple watercolour painting, using black
pens as well. This is the view from my studio when I stand on a chair 
and look out at the world! I liked the effect of next door's house 
silhouetted against the skyline.


 I made two Circles tags, using gesso for the
background and printing with a selection of
jars and lids from my jam jar stash. I thought
the gesso would be thicker and stand out in relief
more, but I couldn't thicken it, so it is not as 
3 D as I would like. I added salt crystals for extra
texture.

  6. Love your sweet watercolour painting, great colours and composition and I think your view is quite similar to the one from my workroom window, I've often thought of trying to paint it so now you've inspired me :o)
