We made it to the south of France for my dad's funeral without any hinderance from the French air traffic controllers and all the rest of the week went to plan....this included an awful lot of clearing out, discoveries, photos, memories galore. We took a break on Sunday and went along to the local "1st Salon of the hunt" and these are some of the pictures I managed to get with my phone...
The hunters in this particular hunt group wear hunting pink and gave us a splendid display of the calls on French horns.
Some of the hounds - these are called "porcelaine"
Art prompts galore
Week starting May 27
Polka dots / scavenger: neutrals, quote, doily, something black and white, dog, flower, spray paint through stencil, something metallic, altered brand tag, blue & green.
Ive got a scrap of polka dot paper that is from my stash, the tag is from a sweatshirt that we bought in Fat Face - it came ready finished with B&W ribbon on the edge.
Week starting 3/6
A / white, lace-ric rac- seam binding or similar, image of wild animal, acrylic paint in 2 colours, texture (drywall tape, corrugated card) stripes, something from stash, medium or supply of choice.
I used a piece of white paper lace wrapped with a ribbon from my stash, a not so wild looking cheetah, stripes in the colours from the main image, a doily coloured with distress ink (medium of choice)
Song lyric/ metallic, flower, 5, starts with W, torn strips of paper, fabric scraps, shapes cut from old book paper, black, words cut from newspaper or magazine, stamping with ink using a random household object.
Ive used some leftover wrapping paper strips, part of a hydrangea blossom, a 5 of Spades, some black fabric scraps, a "metal" anti theft strip from a new item of clothing (Bill forgot to remove said strip before washing!) and finally the words outrageously funny.
