Double Tuesday

Hi everybody!

We had another nice autumn day here - cool, but sunny, and just right for long walks!

Today is another double Tuesday, as we have a new theme at Tag Tuesday and at Try it on Tuesday.

At TIOT our theme for the next 2 weeks is 'Autumn colours', so hope to see lots of you joining in. You can make anything you like as long as it fits the theme.
I made a large (12") tag. I used an image from Gecko Galz, matted with 2 coordinating colours onto black card from an old calendar. The owl trim has been made with a punch. I added some gilding flakes as leaves, and some fibres and beads. I am linking to Crafty Cardmakers, use a punch.






At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is Fright Night - yes, right up my street!
I made a triptych. The grey background was made with DP stenciled over with a CWS tree stencil and Archival black. I mounted it onto some yellow card to brighten it a little, and punched some owl trim from the same card. The moon faces are from Rhonda Kauffs 'Moonbirds' (available from Gecko Galz). The bats and trees have been die cut and crackle varnished.








We had a wonderful day, and I was outside for hours, wandering round - I just feel I have to make the best of the good weather while it lasts.

The day started with a fiery sunrise:


The crow was busy picking at a dead fish at the Rhine:


Once again I was fascinated by the fungi in beautiful autumn colours growing on various trees:





I love these little mossy 'hills' I saw on the little bridge over the stream:


The sun was setting by the time I came home from my last walk:



Have a great day, whatever you are up to, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  17. Your tag is really gorgeous Valerie. I do believe that autumn colors should be used all year long! I believe that witches and rings that go bump in the night should be relevant themes that could be used all year long. Witches have feelings too!

  19. A 12-inch tag in all its glory...well done, Valerie. Your Halloween tags are wonderful and something I rarely create. The fungi today is amazing with the various colours. What a wonderful day for you. Mr. Frost has arrived so I covered my tomatoes last night so they wouldn't freeze. This morning the sun is out for a very pretty day.

    Hugs,
    C
