I have decided to concentrate my efforts for 'living beings' this month on the work of Beatrix Potter, whose magical work was an important part of my childhood. I still have the complete set of Peter Rabbit books, and they are one of the things which I will never part with. She was a very talented painter and illustrator, whose work hangs in the Tate Gallery in London, and painted all her creatures with great love and respect. I am sure many of you will have seen the wonderful film of her life with Rennee Zellweger, 'Miss Potter'. If you are interested you can read more about her life here (English) or here (German).

I want to try to show some of the living beings she created this month, and try to paint or draw some of my own. Your creativity has no limits, you can interpret the theme as you want, with art journaling about any things that live or have lived – unleash your creativity and show us what you can do!

For my piece I painted an A3 page with water colours, and sprinkled on a bit of the wonderful bistre powders sent to me by a friend, and this gave a great grungy look. I fussy cut my characters and put them in scene, together with a photo of Beatrix Potter, watching over her creations. I had great fun making this, and hope you will have fun creating your pages and sharing your living beings with us.

Wie es scheint hatten wir alle riesigen Spaß an Valerie's  "FRIDA KAHLO" Thema im letzten Monat, wo wir uns über 140 Journal Einträge freuen durften - 
Alle Beiträge  auf einen Blick findest Du in unserer FRIDA GALERIE . Es sind auch wieder einige neue Künstler dazugestossen, was uns natürlich sehr viel Freude macht! So und nun los - das neue Thema wartet auf Euch  -  LEBEWESEN.
Das tolle  Beispiel  kommt in diesem Monat wieder von der lieben 
Valerie von Bastelmania - hab lieben Dank liebe Valerie  - danke dass Du bei dieser Reise  mit uns bist ♥♥♥!
Valerie möchte uns zum Thema "Lebewesen" mit ihrem wundervollen Beispiel  diesmal  in die  Welt der begnadeten englischen Kinderbuchautorin und Illustratorin Beatrix Potter einführen, die Valerie sehr verehrt und sie hofft, dass Ihr ganz viel Spaß habt diesen Monat, wie auch immer Ihr das Thema "Lebewesen" interpretieren mögt!
