Monday Mix

Hi Everybody!

The weekend is over already, time flies!

For Art Journal Journey, architecture, I made another  A3 mixed media journal page.






The night was cold and frosty and the sun had to fight its way through the mist this morning:



Some impressions from my sunny October Sunday walk:


This tree-stump is covered from all sides with fungi:




Autumn colours everywhere:



The farmer was at work attracting hundreds of hungry gulls again:


Some architectural pieces from Zons, a little town from the middle ages a few kilometres up river from here:








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

    1. I use layers of white and yellow, and keep the yellow thin so that the white can shine through.

  13. Another fabulous blogpost, there is so much here.
    Your AJJ piece is marvellous, the sunshine glow and the purple which emphasises it.
    First sky photo is stunning, with the depth of colours.
    Is that a seedhead - the fluffy plant? - do you know what it is? looks very unusual.
    And then the Zons architecture, I could spend ages admiring it and commenting on it, but I'll just say "Swoon".

    1. There were several bushes full of those seedheads, but I have no clue what they are.

  19. The birds, clock face and the rose were nicely positioned to move us around the glow of the painting in a 'er... clockwise direction. 'Artylly' clever.

    Gorgeous morning walk. We have a North Easter blowing straight off the sea but the week is set fair

  24. For some reason BLOGLOVIN didn't appear in my email today so I had to go search for your blog and I'm glad I did. Your page is outstanding and I appreciate reading how you acquired the bright spot as a focus in the middle of the page. Beautiful! As are your photos today, you do take some amazing shots and we learn about small towns that are so unfamiliar, at least to me. Don't overdo with your walks in the cold weather. Stay in and have a cup of your delicious coffee.
    Hugs,
    C

  26. You packed a LOT of architecture on that page, and the beauties won't fade, will they? I like how you positioned the images, too. Very nicely done.

    The other day when you showed Zon, I went to the internet to learn more about it. What a fascinating place. Love the streets and the architecture, too. You don't see ANYTHING like that in the states.

    Sorry I missed this yesterday. Glad I finally caught up.

  27. Beautiful journal page, love the imagery you have used. And your page has such a wonderful glow to it.
    Lots of great photos again.
    The Fungi tree made me smile, I could lots of faces on them chatting away to others.
    And those fluffy seed heads are cool - its gonna bug me now wondering what they are, I shall have to try looking them up :)
    Love seeing your photos... Gill xx
