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.
