Blackbirds

Hi Everybody!

Hope you are having a good day, and that the weather is not being too unkind to you!

For Art Journal Journey, Things with wings, and for Moo Mania and more, blackbirds, I have made another journal page. I used a print out of one of my backgrounds, and added more colour with gelatos. I stamped the sun (Hein design) with Color Box chalk ink, and used the same stamp for the globe on which the raven is standing, just altering the colour a bit. I used lots of background stencils from CWS, home made  and Dina Wakley for the patterns, numerals and birds. The raven (LaBlanche) has been stamped with archival black and heat embossed with extra fine EP. I used coloured inks to add colour to the raven. At the moment I am having fun going mad with lots of colours. The quote is from Salvador Dalí.
 I am also linking to Simon Monday challenge, a touch of clover.







After raining for hours yesterday the sky cleared in time for us to see the evening sky and the moon.





This morning the sun tried to break through the clouds and mist, and was able to show itself for a few seconds, but then the clouds prevailed.




Over the clouds




Here's wishing you all a great day! Take care,
and thanks a lo for coming by!

  3. Was für ein genialer Farbrausch heute hier..sowohl in Deiner brilliant gestalteten Seite ( AJJ + MMM danken aus tiefstem ♥) als auch auf diesen sagenhaften Himmelsimpressionen - die Sonne hat sich auf dem einen Bild glaub ich als Mond getarnt..könnte man glatt glauben das ist eine Mondaufnahme...
    Einen wunderschönen neuen Tag für Dich!

  6. Wonderful page today Valerie with spectacular colours and images. I got lost in the scene.

    Lovely photographs. The one with the mauve sky and the tree back is stunning and deserves to be entered into a competition I think.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  16. pictures are awesome. Love your backgrounds and that butterfly. I am not a fan of that bird. We call them scavengers they sit at the country dump ready or on the highway when a animal has been killed. If you get what I mean. .

    Yet you made them a tad better in your art. Thanks. Love your tree pictures .

    1. Yes, they are scavengers and play an important role in the ecological system. Would you prefer the dead animals to decay on the highway?

  21. Your photos are again glorious, especially the second last one which stopped me in my paging down.
    And the moon, it's wonderful.
    I really like your painting with the bright colours, then the black of the birds.

  22. This page flows so beautifully. I don't know if it is the use of colour or the imagery or maybe a mix of both. It's really beautiful.
