A Moo, a journal page and a tag.

Hi everybody!
It's Saturday again, so time to link up to Manon's 'Paper Saturdays'.
 The challenge at Moo-Mania is travel, and at AJJ it's 'less is more', so I made a travel moo and fitted it onto a journal page. Not very original, but my brain seems to be programmed just for autumn at the moment.... But I do like the quote from Anais Nin.

.



And I made another Autumn tag, using more of my home made painted, die-cut and crackled leaves. The sentiment has been prnted onto a transparency. I made a whole pile of them last year, and discovered them in one of my numerous bit-boxes, so decided to use one. The background has been  distressed with rusty screw, wild honey and peeled paint and then spritzed with water. The leaves were stamped with a Lavinia leaf set, and the vintage scrap is from my stash. I gave it a coat of crackle varnish.




I am linking the tag to Tag Along Challenge #5, Autumn glory and to FSC - colours of autumn

Have a great weekend, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  20. The colors of Autumn are indeed the most glorious and the colors of Halloween are the most fun! Your Autumn tag looks like a cornucopia of color. What exactly is a Moo and did you make one Moo or two? And what else would you do with a Moo but put them in an art journal. I like your Moo (or Moos) and your journal page is delightful!
    I picture you now, walking along the Rhine and enjoying the crisp Autumn weather knowing that snow is not far behind. For me, this beats the sweltering heat any day. I also loved it when you posted a picture of your homemade soup -- yum!

  21. The travel piece is very interesting and great colours though I'm not sure what a MOO is - I was expecting to see a cow on it, taking life literally as usual! You have such skill in arranging elements to give a pleasing and balanced design.
