Bottles at Moo Mania and More

Hi Everybody!

Today it's time for a new challenge at Moo Mania and More - Bottles.
 At Art Journal Journey the challenge is 'The sea' , so I had the idea to do a ship in a bottle. When I sent off my page to Susi, she showed me hers - also a ship in a bottle. Great minds think alike!







And here with reversed colours:


Today started off with some sun, but after a few minutes the clouds took over and the day was cold and windy.







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

  5. What an excellent ship in a bottle! Did you draw it? I am so impressed. We had lots of rain yesterday afternoon, but it stayed dry for Wee Man's Potted Sports in the morning. There is still a chill wind blowing tho'. Brr, I'm not a fan of heat, but even I am ready for a wee raise in the temperature, haha.
    Have a good day Valerie {{Hugs}}

  7. Amazing photographs. Our sky looked like that yesterday when we got on the train to come home. There were huge hail stones pounding on the roof of the carriage. We had to get a taxi at the station to come home as it was raining so hard.

    Your journal page is amazing and I love the way it changes from a sunny and bright day to a really stormy scene.

    The ship in a bottle is wonderful and brought back a lot of memories for me as we went to a very small workshop and watched someone erect a galleon in a very small bottle--a long time ago and the place is not there any more.

    Have a great day and thank you for the greeting for Vic's birthday he was thrilled with that.

    Love Chrissie xx

  8. Hi Val, I must apologise for being MIA for so long, real life kicks in again lol. I love your ships in bottles, especially the one with the darker colours - it's a bit like our weather here at the moment :-).

  10. I don't know what I like better, the original or the reverse. Very cool. And I think your quote is exactly how I am feeling right now. Have a great day.

  11. That's a very clever bottle (a phrase I don't often use) in the way you have made it look transparent.
    Love the beautiful ship too and the flying birds.
    It's a really ingenious piece, Valerie.

    I see you are having interesting weather too, I recognise the black cloud in the last photo.

    1. Yes, you might - the clouds are coming over from the North of the British Isles....

    2. Forgot to say how well the inverted version turned out, absolutely terrific colours and it gives another view of your painting, it makes the ship look ghostly.
      It's sunny here today!!!!!!!!!

    3. Of course it's sunny - you sent the clouds over here!

  31. You do take the best sky pictures!
    Ships in a bottle - notes in a bottle, both so romantic. I like the darker one as it is mysterious!
