what is in the air




The theme on 3 Muses is What is in the air this week . If only I would read things properly , all that stuck in my mind was the air bit.


I thought of pigs that fly, scuba divers coming up for air, politicians with lots of hot air , air and graces , airing dirty linen in public etc. and then of the air around me and how different it was from say Birmingham or Newcastle or Glasgow.


Oh well it's creation that counts and us crafters are known for getting diverted.


xxxxx


wat zit er in de lucht is het thema bij 3 Muses deze week maar bij mij bleef alleen het woordje lucht hangen. Ik dacht aan vliegende varkens, duikers die voor lucht bovenkomen, politici vol met hete lucht , de vuile was buiten hangen etc.


Daarna dacht ik hoe schoon de lucht om ons heen is hier en wat een verschil met bv. Birmingham,Newcastle of Leeds. maar goed het gaat om de creatie he, en wij crafters staan erom bekend dat we snel op een ander pad gebracht worden.

Ellen, you are dealing with a very important subject matter in your wonderful collage - keeping the air clean is vital for all living things on the Earth. Your idea to visualize this with the postage stamps and info texts works well!

A great reminder to take care of our planet, and a very unique piece of art. Thank you for sharing.

Love your verdant page. Green is my favorite color, and that's wonderful news that the air is clean. The photographs and map are combined effectively and very beautifully in your composition, but I have to admit that I'm also smitten by the idea of flying pigs!

There's nothing more important than the quality of the air we breathe and we would all like to live in a place where it is still clean and fresh and that could be in parts of bonny Scotland. I love your take on the theme Ellen. Those stamps are wonderful and the greenness of your picture makes me yearn for rain and coolness. It is night time here and I think you have sent me off to bed with the promise of sweet dreams.

Love your piece Ellen and to me it fits absolutely right with the theme, Edinburgh is not too bad, but I bet the air where you are is just wonderful, lucky you

Judy said...

Your beautiful art aptly describes the place where you live, Ellen, what an idyllic setting!

A great reminder, and beautiful image!

I love the green, the stamps, and I can't think of anything but water that is more important than clean air. Your collage is a great statement!

Oh, you have had a lot of ideas, but you picked up a one very important. Or in fact many - stamps are in the air too (at least if they are "air mail"). Very beautifully done art work with an important message in it!
