Thursday this and that

Hi Everybody!

Hope your day was good. It started out cool and rather misty here, but this afternoon the sun came out, and that was just great!

For Art Journal Journey, 'Birds, Beasts and Humans', and for Moo Mania and More, circles, I have made another journal page in A4. The background was painted with diluted acrylics in yellow and orange, and then stenciled with various motives from CWS using forest moss DI. The head stencil is home made, the little girl with the balloon and the quote are both from and have been stenciled with black soot DI. The circles were drawn by hand.
You can see all the entries for AJJ by clicking the link on the side bar.

And I couldn't resist taking photos of the sun beginning to set this afternoon:

Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  13. Your art journal pages turned out beautifully Valerie...I am so taken with the words too!
    I was snapping photos out our front door last night of a gorgeous sunset here in Virginia.
    Your photos are beautiful with the glowing fading light!

  14. Your page is really great today and I am totally in love with all of the SUNSHINE photos.!!! You have such beautiful places to walk in every day. I trudge up and down my dreary little country road with nothing interesting to photograph but weeds.

  15. Fantastic page Valerie. The colours are wonderful ((hugs)) :o))

  16. Oh Valerie, dein letztes Foto heute ist ja der absolute Hammer! ... der Übergang der Himmelfarben ist ja grandios von gelb bis blau-türkis! Wie schön du den Ausschnitt gewählt hast mit den herunterhängenden Zweigen. Wirklich ein Starfoto.
    Ich wünschte mir, wir hätten hier auch solch ein Wetter. Hier ist es noch immer saukalt und ganz nebeltrüb.
    Du hast ja auch in deinem Bild die Sonnenfarben wieder herbeigezaubert.
