Quirky Dutch Summer week 3

The theme for the third Quirky Dutch Summer week is playing with shadow. It reminded me of a photo I took in my garden a few years ago. Our Hedera looked very bad that year and the sun was shining through, making a beautiful stained glass like shadow on our new tiles.
First I collaged a background in my red altered book. I took a photo before I added a watered down acrylic layer of paint.
I attached the photo at the left and doodled around. Then I added the letters, schaduw is Dutch for shadow. I wrote the story of this spread with a black permanent marker and added some white with a Sakura gelly roll pen. In the upper right corner I stamped a cute birdy, which reminds me of a blackbird that was nesting in our Hedera years before I took the shadow photo. I also added an I’m in the garden sign at the bottom of the right page. Just click the photo to have a closer look.
You can see what others did for this week at Marit’s Paper World or the Quirky Dutch Summer facebook group.

  1. wow, such a lovely page! I love the mosaic in the background too, similar to the tiles in the garden. Great thinking!

    1. Door jouw reactie zie ik pas waardoor ik gekozen heb voor de collage achtergrond ipv verf! In mijn hoofd zag de pagina er totaal anders uit, hij groeide gewoon terwijl ik lekker bezig was. Ik ben zo blij met QDS!

  2. I agree with Marit you have created a nice tie in between background and photo - nice spread

    1. Thanks, Margaret. My oldest daughter saw the beautiful shadows and told me to take photo's. The printed photo is not as pretty as the digital one.
