we do not celebrate mother´s day in our family - like valentine i´m not happy with proxy days. i think we should give attention to our loved ones all over the year, and not on an alibi day. way too much commerce around it. [and, especially in germany, the celebration of mothers was stimulated in world war II, that dark chapter in our history...]
so i escaped into the animal world;)
background elements from scrapbookgraphics, brushes by me.

this postcard contains elements from scrapbookgraphics (background, bubblewrap brushes), coffeeshop (frame of the picture) and jessica sprague (tape) and the free dymo-brushes, which i found online.
SPA chose this theme because Children's Day is a Japanese national holiday which takes place annually on May 5, the fifth day of the fifth month, to respect children's personalities and to celebrate their happiness.

the theme of artjournal journey this month is challenge yourself....
i normally don´t like to work on a small scale like inchies, but for a project in our munich stamping group i agreed to go beyond my comfort zone.
actually the squares are 1,6 inch, so not too small, but i always find it hard to save these tinies without losing them. so i think i will glue the duplicates i made for me into a journal...
diesmal soll man sich bei artjournal journey selber herausfordern...
i mag ja normalerweise nicht so gerne im kleinformat (wie z.b. inchies) arbeiten - weil ich dann immer nicht weiß wohin mit den dingern und sie verschlupfen sich dann irgendwo. nun läuft in unserer münchner stempelgruppe ein tauschprojekt mit kleinen quadraten (4x4 cm) und ich hab mich überreden lassen. hat dann doch spaß gemacht! und ich werde meine duplikate in ein journal kleben, damit sie nicht wieder verloren gehen;)

last week we had some sunny days and if time allows i spend them in my small garden doing my favorite things: spraying or tinting some backgrounds (here a braille book) and watching the flowers grow (i´m a lazy gardener, i only have perennials;))
going around i found some leftovers from last autumn´s physalis: i´m always surprised how these beautiful fragile skeletons withstand the snow masses! anyway, i saved them and bringing them to the desk with the braille book it was clear i had to take a photograph.
