They were right.
(The visitors who left a comment
on ‘haiku my heart’ last week I mean.)
It IS addictive.
But before I come to that… something creative! YAY!
I saw it on the Internet earlier, but when Rosie started talking about it
(and showing results!) I really couldn’t help myself any longer:
I bought me the carving tools to make my own stamps!
I’m not the ‘start easy’ type: I wanted a bird stamp!
One that looks like what Kim used on this page here.
Because when I saw her page, an idea popped in my mind
with a stamp like that.
Did I manage to carve a stamp?
(This page serves as an example for one of the ‘Summer Camp‘ prompts)
Like a bird on the wire
(click on the photo to enlarge)
(21 x 29,7 cm - 8.3 x 16.9 inch. Used: Watercolour paint, hand carved stamp, black stazon ink, grey fine point marker
The ‘wires’ are a phrase from the song ‘Bird on the wire’ by Leonard Cohen
Like a bird on a wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
And here’s Haiku my Heart (in Dutch and English)
strooit schaduwen op de muur
‘t is bijna zomer
|Filtered sunlight throws
shadows, dancing on the wall
Summer’s almost here
I have the feeling that, without consciously choosing a direction, I got past
the crossroads. All of a sudden, I’m walking on a path that seems worth
to explore. I guess this journey was put in motion by writing the haiku last
week, and the art journal page I made following that haiku and photo of the
stones spiral. The ‘birds on a wire’ page somehow show that same ‘misty’ style.
I do not know where this path will lead me – I cautious move on…
Enjoy the weekend dear ones!
