More birds

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - have a good one!

For Art Journal Journey, winter wonderland, I made a hybrid photo collage using a photo from my lovely blogger friend, Carolyn, who takes wonderful photos, and makes fabulous artwork and digital work. The background of my hybrid piece was painted with acrylics. I always love watching the wild geese, and was very happy when dear Carolyn sent me the photo! Thanks for the permission to use it.




And this hybrid collage was made just for fun, I needed a break from winter!



Today was another very mixed day with blue skies, grey clouds and lots of wind.

I love these old trailers:


The heron put himself in scene again today:




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

  4. My favorite is your break from winter collage, wonderful color and detail! Herons and other large majestic water birds are the main thing I miss from Florida. I do not miss the humidity! :D

  6. Love both of your pieces today. Spring...well it wasn't suppose to snow today and its been snowing all evening. UGH. But I guess it is January. We can dream I guess. Still can't over how green your grass is. Have a wonderful weekend too!

  8. Ooh, those are good ones.

  9. As always, I adore the beauty of the winter scene, but totally understand how leaving winter behind for a time with a different collage is good for recharging your batteries, especially if the day was cold and windy. I so enjoyed the heron today. I wonder if s/he was vocal, because it looked like it was talking.

    Have a wonderful Saturday and weekend.

  11. Beautiful page with the winter scene Valerie and the one just for fun is magical. I think we will all be pleased when winter is over though we have a very cold and snowy forecast for the coming week.

    Love the photographs today with the old trailer and the heron

    Have a great day

  12. Deine Winterszene ist wunderschön.. aber ich versteh Dich gut, ein bisschen Frühlingslaune kann nicht schaden- das zweite Stück ist auch toll, wie sie da durch die Bäume linsen!
    Der Reiher scheint Dich zu mögen, dass er sich immer mit Dir trifft!
    Hab einen feinen Sansatag Liebes!

  19. That is certainly a stunning photo with the geese, and I like what you have done with it too, the arch of words and the marvellous sky.
    Fun that you made a warm day collage too, it's just gorgeous with these warm, warm colours and sunny day foliage.
    I think the heron likes being on your blog and having an international audience, it's the equivalent of a heron-selfie.

    1. Perhaps we could start a heron fan club?

  20. Both projects are unique and lovely Valerie. The geese photo and your creation is just stunning. I think that bird's feet must be very cold - eheheheh - in your last photo!!! I love that "she" is wearing a hat of leaves too - maybe that helps her feet stay warmer!!! j.

  21. You created a beautiful winter page, Valerie. (I'm a little partial.) However, I also like your warmer collage. The geese this morning were standing on the edge of the ice in the pond. It is warming up so the ice should soon be gone. Have a great weekend.
    hugs,

  23. I love your pages - the Winter one has such a lovely photo and I love how you have used it! I can see the fun you had with your second one! Great heron pics and the trailer reminds me of childhood rides on something similar - health and safety meant looking out for yourself in those days!!! Hugs, Chrisx

  28. Lovely winter collage with the promise of spring.
    In the fall when I hear the squeaky wings of the geese flying overhead I get a little melancholy thinking about the long winter.
    But now I realize time moves SO quickly...so no worries.
    That is one handsome birdie and he looks like he is posing just for you.

  29. I like your top dig work and then as I scroll other types. Very impressive. As you used the scenery. I do that at times. It is lovely.

    I seen another one I liked but somehow it must of been on another of your blog. It was using a scene with a child or children.
