Light and darkness

Hi Everybody!

For Art Journal Journey, Nature's wonders, I have another hybrid page, and I am still on a moon trip - does that make me a lunatic? (You don't need to answer that question!)I combined 2 backgrounds, and added my painted flowers, which were digitally enhanced to make them look less tatty, a candle, and some digis from Itkupilli. I love the quote from Francis Bacon. Tomorrow I will be showing a more down-to-earth page, with creatures which really stick to the ground....

And here are some more photos of Zons. If you would like to learn more about this little town you can do so here (German) and here (English):

Lots of strange creatures:

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


  1. Love today's photos, and no, I do not think you are a lunatic!! The moon and stars are just beautiful and fascinating. Good to see more photos of Zons, I must ask P. to drive me there again one day. Hugs, Sarah

  2. Came late to catch up on Tuesdays Tea. Glad I didn't miss this. I really like your pages (I'm a moon lover being a Cancer by birth). I enjoyed the views of Zons as well.

  16. I won't answer your question about being a lunatic as I must come under that banner myself. Your page is beautiful with lovely words. More super photos and I see they have those tin animals for sale in Zons as well.
    Have a good Sunday.

    Zons is nice - and that shop with the quirky animals just fantastic.
    Happy Sunday to you... Gill xx

  20. Looks great, awesome pictures :)

  21. Adorable page and I just LOVE you photos...oh how lovely they all are..hugs.. {aNNie}

  22. My favorite picture has to be the one of the dog - talk about nature at its finest! Loved your pictures - I have always been attracted to stone work and I love old bricks.
    Your journal pages are always interesting Valerie - It's like having a peek inside of your brain.

  23. Hi Valerie, I like the moon and stars as a background to your painted flowers. The additional photos of Zons are interesting and I love the brick wall with the bricked in centers. I also like the dog and the lovely lady in the photo, who is? Another week gone so quickly.

  24. The blue in your drawing is so brilliant and goes well with the other colors. As for the little town, it looks like a charming village where anyone would love to stroll and shop. The sweet dog is also darling and needs to be petted. A lovely post.

  25. SILLY GIRL! IT MAKES YOU A LUNA-LOVER ♥♥♥♥♥ Love the page and all of the photos of your little trip to Zons :) The buildings are intriguing and I love the fit shop!!!!! Then the photo of the dog on the steps captured my heart and I'm a goner ♥♥♥♥ Thanks for sharing.

  26. I love this digi! The quote you chose is just perfect Valerie!!
    Thank you so much for sharing , I love to learn of far away places!

  27. I adored the vintage sheet music palely showing in the background, and the entire piece was well done. Sorry, won't dignify a response to lunatic.

    I loved the beautiful photos of the weird animals in that shop, but my heart went out to that dog behind the fence.

    One of these days you must take us back to Zons. I know 15 miles one way is too far for even YOU to walk, so let us know if it's possibly on the water, a bus, or a friend.

  28. Hi Valerie -- I'm trying hard to catch up during the few brief days I will be with reliable internet! This town is just fabulous and so is your page. I loved your lunatic joke! I'm very fond of the moon and the colors in this one captured my heart -- but so did Zons!

    I will try to catch up on as many posts as I can!

  29. Luna "tics" unite ;-)
    Love your magical moon creations liebe Valerie.
    Again with perfect words too (of course!).
    Lovely to wake up to more of Zons as I ran out of light and energy yesterday in my BIG catch up with everyone at AJJ this month.
    Who is that lovely lady in grey?
