i stitched one more patched circle and decided to call these "mixed cakes"
(as "Color wheels" normally follow certain rules - and these do not;))
it is a fun leisure time play and meanwhile on my "WIP" Cloth are two of them:
on thursday i was in munich and the weather was chilly cold, but dry and so i went to two markets.
first one: Tollwood winter Festival
i thought i would only walk around (because most of the booth are there every year),
but then i bought some little things anyway,
as these canoinha pods (colored in)
... maybe good for presenting some nuts etc ...
and i couldn´t resist these fabric stamps:
very tasty: various (organic) spice - some apt to mix with creme fraiche for yummy Dips:
funny: old Vinyl Albums with matching laser cuts,
provided with clockwork (not bought)
this Festival always gives a lot of impulse for recycling -
and so does some artwork here and there...
i had time enough to also attend the Christmas market in Schwabing,
which is an art fair actually - People are only allowed to offer handmade things.
lots of ceramics, glass, Wood, felted things, toys, jewelry and much more.
the next pic Shows some "Paravents"/ garden fences, optical dividers - made of various materials held together with wire. i really regret i do not have space for them;)
this year is the 40th anniversary of this market,
and each year they bring out a new motif mug.
i collected them for quite some years (but missed the last few)
and this is the new one:
and finally one of my absolute favorite booth there,
the man who is selling copper kaleidoscopes
on his Website i found a Little Video (2 min - highly recommended).
i did not know that this year was the 200th anniversary of the kaleidoscope
(well, forerunners were known to the ancient Greeks
[thus the word, which translates "look to beautiful shapes"])
over the years i spoilt myself with three of them:
now i thought i could try to photograph through the lenses...
and making a clipping of one of the views i got this "icy" Piece:
i played with this one, added a layer from holliewood, a Silhouette from my collection and a final framing layer from shadowhouse
(and i learned a new Feature in PS this week... - but don´t yet have a perfect command of it)
so i created These two pics...
you know that game - i loved to play it in my childhood:
and played with another one... inverting it...
and then added filters: liquify and ripple
then stopped playing,
because this could become endless;))
