Weekend mix

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - enjoy!

For Art Journal Journey, I have a hybrid page. The hollyhocks were painted, digitally cut out and placed on a photo background.




The moon was bright:


The day started off well:





And some impressions from my walk:



The walnuts are growing nice and large:





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

  12. Your hollyhocks stole the scene. You did a fantastic job, but traditionally and digitally putting this entry together. It is gorgeous.

    I enjoyed your walk, and was amazed at the walnuts. That's a big WOW factor. Hope you are having a super weekend, dear.

  15. Lovely post Valerie and nice to see the moon so bright and clear. Such a beautiful sunset as well and the wonderful walk along the Rhine that makes me think I have been there even though I haven't been nearer than Dusseldorf Airport.

    The page is amazing with the wonderful hollyhocks and comforting quote.

    Have a lovely day

  19. I have no idea how one might go about doing a "hybrid" page. But your journal pages are always delightful. Love the Helen Keller quote and have read it many times before. Look! Those people enjoying the beach along the Rhine. Ahhhhh - summer!
    Believe it or not I am working on a journal page for AJJ. At this rate I will be lucky to do one a month! I am so new to so many techniques but really am enjoying the process. Hopefully will post by Monday!

  20. LOVE the art...♥♥♥ Holly Hock always remind me of my grandmother she had them growing along the fence line around her vegetable garden. Lovely sunrise photos . I haven't been up early enough to enjoy the sunrise in a while... seemed to have messed up my sleeping patterns big time lately .

  21. The colours in your morning sky great camera to capture them. My shins are a bit better now thanks but it does not help that I insist on trying to walk as often as. Been a good week, love your hybrid page that hollyhock is so pretty your digital cutting is neat in all senses of the word as well. XOXO

  22. There certainly IS alot to be said about being content in the now.
    Love how you cut those hollyhocks out digitally for your lovely collage.
    I haven't a clue how that is done.
    Hollyhocks are such pretty flowers.

  24. Beautiful...Love your digital painting. It would make a fabulous card!! Great message!! Wonderful photos too...the walnut tree reminds me of childhood when we would try to open the walnuts with a rock...the meat inside just heavenly.
