New Challenge at Moo Mania and More - Moon

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at

Moon

As always, projects of all formats and styles are welcome,
and you have 2 weeks to link to us.

Hope to see YOU there!

For my hybrid piece I used a background made from painted, heated and bubbled Tyvek, adding some digi elements from Dezinaworld 15 & Mischief Circus. I am also linking to Art Journal Journey, Nature's wonders - yes, I am still on my moon trip!




My walk yesterday led me to a neighbouring village and then back along the Rhine:


The long eared sheep are back again, including some very newly born 'babies':

George Washington


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

  10. I love the moon theme. Sounds like a great challenge. And I love your page today. two moons-its like we live on another planet where they have more moons than we do here on Earth. The angel in black is a fantastic image. And I love those long eared sheep. You got some fantastic photos of them. Have a great Wednesday. Hugs-Erika

  12. Your moons and angels seem right at home with this theme. It's a lovely first entry for MM&M.

    Please, please tell me those sheep are raised for sheering and not for slaughter. They have such lovely fur, and the babies are so adorable.

    I was also impressed with the fields and the road that was built overhead. That would be unheard of in the states. Our govt. would have purchased the land, built the road, and destroyed all that farm land.

    1. The road is the bridge over the Rhine, and was only allowed after years of discussion and the promise to keep the pastures along the river. They are necessary as 'flood-lands' to take up the water when the river overflows.

  13. Eine tolle tolle Seite Valerie und so schöne AUfnahmen - wie süß die kleinen Schäfchen sind! Die Strohballen liegen hier auch überall rum derzeit... sehen so viel besser aus als die Plottegs aus Plastik für's Heu.
    600 kilo hat so ein Ding hat mir WIlli kürzlich erklärt... und trotzdem, als damals der gewaltige Sturm hier war hat es diese Dinger herumgeschleidert wie Wattebällchen!

    Schönen Tag - fahr jetzt zum Einkaufen!
    Hier Regen und WIlli kann nicht zum Schwammerlsuchen- also hab ich das Auto zum Einkaufen frei.

  21. I love the moon moo page with the glittery blue background. I'll have to check into Tyvek - the building stuff?? That's new to me. And I love the sheep photos. They're adorable! Those ears! LOL.

  22. Wonderful blog post today. Love your moons on the creative background and the sheep! I noticed some black sheep. If I recall correctly, the farmers would include one black sheep for every 25 or so to keep track of the total count. Do you know if they do that in Germany?
    Hugs,

  25. It is always a pleasure to visit your blog and see your latest art work. I must admit though, your pictures make me miss our little goats. They were fun while we had them.
