He's got the whole world....

Hi Everybody!

It's time for Paint Party Friday again, and my mixed media piece is also meant for Art Journal Journey, for the record, and Moo Mania and More, music.
My A3 page has been gessoed, painted, collaged and stamped. I am sure some of you know this folk song. I started off with the newspaper cut-out of the young man and the globe, collaged more cut outs, and added various family photos . Then I filled in the rest with stamps (mostly from Lost Coast Designs) and a stencil of Mr Umbrella Man.  The photos are members of my family, old and new, and I'm there, too.








Sunrise is always one of my fave times:





And then I had a nice walk over the market, which takes place twice a week



This is where I often drink cappuccino after my physiotherapy:


Outside the butcher's:


Eggs and dairy products:


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

  4. A wonderful mix of characters and I like the way you tied them into the lyrics of this folk song - I remember it from my childhood. It's just come back to me that this was a song in a music book I had when I was learning to play the guitar - I would be 10 years old or thereabouts.

  6. I remember that song. I haven't even thought of it in years. Love your piece. I especially like the old and new photos. And I especially love seeing people sitting outside at the cafe. Today my phoebe bird was back at their nest under the eaves of our outbuilding, and I had a whole flock of blackbirds, which surely means spring is here. :) Hugs-Erika

  10. I had to think about that song, but I do remember it. I enjoyed seeing photos of both old and new, as well as the market. It's amazing that this market is so accessible, but you would never find it here in the states, because we put so many restrictions on and laws prohibiting things not controlled. The plants and flowers would be OK, but eggs, dairy products, and baked goods have to be inspected in order to be sold like that. You are SO lucky you can walk there and get fresh produce and such. It's beautiful surroundings, too. Love where you drink your cappuccino!

    1. The booths here are always controlled, and all of the booths selling fresh projects are refridgerated and have to be kept to a high standard of hygiene. The market controllers go round the markets and people who do not comply with the rules get fined and lose their licences.

  11. That song is not one of my favorites, but I love the work it has inspired you to do: so joyful!
    And the high spring you seem to have there!

  13. Fantastic page and a great song to choose Valerie. Lots to see on the page for sure.

    With your views of the sky it is no wonder you love this time of day. The photographs today are all so wonderful. I recall going to a German Christmas market and the wonderful smells from the stalls. Thank you for starting my day with a beautiful memory

    Love Chrissie xx

  15. Oh yes I remember that song well. What a great journal page especially having you and members of your family included. I've always loved that umbrella man too.
    Beautiful sunrise photos and I love to wonder around outdoor markets like this one. I could spend hours picking up all sorts of fresh delights.
    Plus the sun is shining... perfect!
    Happy PPF to you.

    Great photos, always love to see you sunrises.
    Our weather very mixed at present with sunshine and heavy showers but the birds have been nesting earlier than normal and seem to be already collecting food for their young.

  22. To market, to market! Fantastic photos and a fun way to shop. But the outstanding photos are those of your journal page. It always pleases me to view a part of you or family in your art. We also had a beautiful sunrise after rain last night; everything sparkles.
    Hugs,

  23. I love this fabulous way to illustrate this song! Great photos, especially the market! Hoping to feel a bit more like catching up on blogs soon! Still trying to shake off the bug! Hugs, Chrisx

  24. Great artwork for the song! I think that was one everyone had to learn at one time or another, lol! Your sunrise is beautiful and so is the outdoor market! All your photos make me want to just pack up and move there, altho' I don't think that will ever happen. So I will just enjoy your photos and your art as often as I can. You bring so much beauty out in both. Hugs, Rasz

  25. A wonderful collage Valerie, and such a lovely market. The café seems to have a lovely place outdoors in the shining sun for a Cappuccino, perfect after the physiotherapy. Happy Friday!

    Love and hugs

  26. Valerie, I love, love the piece with He's got the whole World in his Hands. Each area of it is really special and shows you put a lot of love into it. Your sunrise photos are super. Could I please have permission to try my hand at painting the second one where the tree is the dominant feature and the sun is not quite up?

  34. It has been too long that I visited - you and Germany! Thank you so much for the beautiful downtown, small town photos. They bring back a lot of good memories of home.
    Your collages are always beautiful. And I like the way you show them in the detailed photographs.
    Happy PPF, hmm, well, actually rather PPS :)

  36. I would adore going to that market and having a cup of cappuccino with you.
    I really liked your journal page - not quite how I pictured God but hey, who am I to say. You must have the best time coming up with your images.

  39. Love that spread and I so love your street faire Val!!
    i have to tell you that I am having a most difficult time with your word verification- it keeps flipping and telling me I am wrong- I give up and return later, but on Susi's I finally gave up! These things are ridiculous! Why does blogger require them?! Argh!!
