Today we are visiting Rhodes, often referred to as the Island of the Knights.
The island of Rhodes' largest city is also named Rhodes. I have learned that many of these islands have cities with the same name as the island. While in Rhodes, you can also visit the city of Lindos with its acropolis, where we visited several days ago.
These windmills sit near the Aegean Sea, which can be seen in the background. This is a big tourist attraction.
I believe the lighting was better in the photo above, but this is the Gate d'Amboise in the Old Town section in the city of Rhodes.
I think this is an even better photo of the Gate.
This is a better view of the windmills taken from the water.
These are the ruins of the Apollo temple at the Acropolis of Rhodes.
I got the feeling this altered book entry had started to feel like a scrapbook page.
Besides trying to make a banner (or is it bunting?) using washi tape, I used some of my handmade baker's twine I made during April last year.
I created this on a piece of heavy cardboard, because I used a lot of paint and wasn't sure a used file folder would hold up to so much paint. I had four images of Rhodes (the city) I found in various travel magazines. I backed them with black card stock. I strung handmade bakers twine across the bottom of the page to which I added washi tape. I got a bit carried away crimping the tape to cut the dove tails, which ruined the effect, I fear. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get the washi tape to lie flat or straighten out again. Learn from my mistake, please.
Thanks for visiting today. I am most grateful. Now let's head to Art Journal Journey to see where others take us today.
