Mid week mix

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well.

For Art Journal Journey, inspired by autumn colours, I have another hybrid collage, using my photos and art work. I added  Banksy's little girl with the balloon (stencilry) and some bubbles.





For Wen's Simply Neutrals I made another hybrid collage. The fish are from Itkupilli, all the rest is made from my own art/photos.


These 2 photos fit Wen's theme, too:





On Sunday we had beautiful weather. This raven was waiting for his breakfast in the early morning:


Here I have digitally cut out the background and changed it to a PNG file,  (with a transparent background) so please feel free to down load and use this one in your own work if you like it.


We have had wonderful sunrises in the past few days, I love seeing the morning sun dispelling the frost and mist.


My long shadow accompanies me on my walks:


The leaves of the pollard willows were gleaming like silver in the sun:


Frozen leaves:


There was ice on the little swamp:






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

  7. I love your page today!!! I'm so thrilled to see your beautiful photos included on your art journal pages. And, more photos today to share with us. Thank you. I was taken back by the one of the trees that line the path. They look so bare without their leaves. I need to go back and find your earlier photo with the autumn colored leaves and compare the two. (Perhaps you could do something like that on a journal page for autumn.) It would be awesome.

    Hugs,

  10. As always, I love your hybrid AJJ journal page, and your lovely neutrals page. It is lovely, as is the face.

    I was out early yesterday morning and stepped on a block of ice. Quite a surprise for me, and now I can relate to your little swamp and frozen leaves. Lovely art and nature shots, as always, dear.

  12. Was für geniale Arbeiten heute wieder - wunderschön! Die neutral stimmige Gesichtsseite ist ganz besonders schön - und absolut herrliche Fotos - da überleg ich fast ob ich nicht doch rausgehen soll..so schmackhaft machst DU einem die Natur - aber ne.. zu kalt für mich heute....war eben im Garten und es schneit zuviel und Wind geht auch --das fühlt sich gleich nochmal so kalt an. Dein Krähenfreebie hab ich mir geschnappt- danke!
    Einen schönen Tag Valerie!

  23. Nice pages, Valerie - both so different. Especially like the cut out you did of the girl -- very attractive. Walk looks beautiful and sunny. It's sunny here today, though COLD ... ice on the windows of the car this morning! A little over the top for me.. lol. Take care, hugs, Donna
