The moon over the town

Hi Everybody!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Thanks again to all who sent well wishes; I do feel better, even though it is not yet completely gone, and am hopeful that I can soon get things done again at my usual pace.

For Art Journal Journey, architecture, 49 Faces, and Kim Dellow's show your face I made another mixed media journal page in A3. I think I was under the spell of the lunar eclipse when I made it....






Yesterday, when I went to the doctor's, it had stopped raining but the water drops were glistening everywhere:




I went out for a short walk today, and it was dry. This lovely ink-cap fungus greeted me as I went out of the house:


This one was a little further down the road:


The bottle top art has changed again:


The signs of autumn are everywhere:








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

  6. Amazing photographs Valerie and particularly the ones with the rain drops--stunning. I wonderful if the bottle top artist changes it by adding different things?

    Your page is so beautiful with the deep blue and the many things to take us here and there on a journey.

    Have a good day

    Love Chrissie xx

  9. Happy Sunday Valerie, glad to hear you are feeling better.
    Wonderful photos and especially the ones showing the twinkling rain drops.
    A stunning piece of artwork as well and I really love the background and fab quote.
    Apparently this week Venus, Jupiter and Mars have been in alignment so maybe that's been working its magic on you too.
    Have a lovely (relaxing) day.... Gill xx

  10. It's great to read you are finally on the mend. Being able to take a short walk means you will soon be your self.

    The drawing is wonderful. I was so impressed with what I think is intended to be "start dust." Not sure how you made it, but it added something to the entry. Something that had my eye landing on it with each photo you took.

    WOW, oh wow. Your photos are great. Loved the first one with the raindrops still showing on the ornamental grass. It is lovely.

    Hope your Sunday is going well, and you will be feeling up to par soon.

  11. OH GOSH. It's early here. It should read STAR dust, not START dust. I need coffee.

    1. I know that need coffee feeling! The star dust is a very fine glitter called 'fairy dust', and I love it!

  16. I love space themed pieces. I think your paint streaks and stars and planets above the city is so cool. Funny I made a same themed type of piece the other day-will post it to show you. But mine looks so different. (That is such the cool thing about art). Fantastic photos today of autumn-especially with the water drops-and the colors....Glad to hear you are on the mend too! Enjoy what's left of your weekend.

  19. Liebe Valerie, er Mond über Deiner Stadt mutet fast weihnachtlich an. Er/ sie passt so schön in diese Jahreszeit des sichtbaren Wandels. Ich wünsche Dir sonnige Herbsttage und eine schöne neue Woche.

  21. This is magical, the blues seem to glow, how did you do that, I wonder - blue fairy dust?
    Good to hear that you are out and about, thanks for all the photos which say Autumn.

  29. Just love your page with all the planets and stars in her hair. I'm glad you are starting to feel better, it must have completely washed you out, so horrid but so good you are on the mend again. Thanks for the lovely Autumnal shots and for another great link up to Show Your Face and shout out too. Kx

  30. Not only have I missed out on some of your lovely artwork (you are such a powerhouse it is a challenge when I am not limping and away for two weeks *gg*) ... sorry to read that you weren't feeling well.
    Hoping all is well again.
    Your lunar eclipse inspired piece is stunning and just perfect with the words too ♥ ♥ ♥...your magical mystical lady is wonderful Valerie!
