Luna is 2 years old

Today we celebrated Luna's birthday. Our cute Cavalier King Charles turned 2 years old today! Time sure goes fast!

I wanted to take some nice pictures of her, but Luna was in a crazy mood today!

Isn't she cute!

First cross stitch by number finished!

Yesterday I finished this cross stitch project. I made it with an app called 'Cross Stitch 2019'.

This app comes with hundreds of beautiful photos and patterns to make. It is very easy, relaxing and fun! You just have to select the color and tap to place the stitches.

Cross Stitch can be played anytime and anywhere!

You can even import your onw photo and start creating your unique cross stitch art work!

Birthday card inspired by Mondrian

A few weeks ago I made a birthday card for my mother who turned 60. I made her this square card inspired by the beautiful art of Mondrian.

Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan, after 1906 Piet Mondrian (7 March 1872 - 1 February 1944), was a Dutch painter and theoretician who is regarded as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. He is known for being one of the pioneers of 20th century abstract art, as he changed his artistic direction from figurative painting to an increasingly abstract style, until he reached a point where his artistic vocabulary was reduced to simple geometric elements.

Piet Mondrian

Mondrian's art was highly utopian and was concerned with a search for universal values and aesthetics. He proclaimed in 1914: Art is higher than reality and has no direct relation to reality. To approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual. We find ourselves in the presence of an abstract art. Art should be above reality, otherwise it would have no value for man. His art, however, always remained rooted in nature.

Right painting: Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow, 1930, Piet Mondrian

I like this style of abstract art very much!

To make this card I first folded a card from white cardstock, then I glued a piece of black cardstock as the base of the artwork. After a lot of measuring, trying, finding the right colors and putting the pieces together I ended up with this card. I am very happy with the result and my mother liked it to!

Her gift was this shoulder bag that I bought on AliExpress. Of course I have the same!
