More autumn feelings

Hi Everybody!

For Art Journal Journey, Indian summer and for Paint Party Friday
I have a mixed media piece today. The background was brayered with leftover paints. The flowers were stenciled with a gorgeous 1€ stencil from the Euro shop, and the dragonflies were also rather messily stenciled with some left over paint. The lady was painted using a home made template, then doodled with a gold pen, with which I also outlined the flowers. The leaves were cut from painted paper.






 This morning I was up early and was rewarded with a wonderful sunrise, but perhaps I should take time to put something over my pyjamas when it's so cold outside!




And this was serendipity pure - a flock of wild geese flew by on their
way down to the Rhine:





The sheep are grazing on the meadows near the Rhine again. It's good to pause and just watch them:








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

  7. Terrific page Valerie with a great mix of colours and design. Always love how you make your own stencils.

    What an amazing sunrise. Enough to make anyone forget to get dressed properly for sure. We can't see the sunset or sunrise from any of our windows and I really think thatwould be wonderful. Thank you for sharing yours with me.

    Well lambs in October. I have never seen any here at this time of year. They are so cute

    Love Chrissie xx

  8. A golden goddess in full power! Beautiful mixed media. The photos are serene and peaceful. I noticed that you spelled 'pyjamas'. This how Indians do it too. Here in the US, it is 'pajamas.

  15. Love the stencil work on your fabulous page, the silhouette woman dancing looks awesome. Great morning photos especially the geese flying over, good that you were awake as I think they can be quite noisy.

  20. Love the art today!!!! That dancing figure is one of my favorites. :) Spectacular photos today too and I can so relate to the "JAMMIES" not being warm enough these days. My morning walks with Mini are requiring heavier clothing these days.

  21. Your page reminds me of a rust coloured jump suit I used to have in the 70s. That era was very much about autumn shades. It was clever of you to pick up on that with your art page.
    hugs,

  22. Once again, a great autumn page, Valerie. You are never at a loss for ideas. Photos are tremendous. The geese flying across the sunrise is spectacular. The sheep - ah the sheep! Absolutely mesmerizing -- my favorite is the little black and white one. I could take him home with me. Hugs, Donna

  27. Einfach toll mit den vielen Details! Besonders gefällt mir das Doodling mit dem Goldpen, und der sagenhafte 1€-Blütenstempel, und die ausgeschnittenen Blätter - und einfach alles!

  29. I love the homemade stencil. What a gem. Lovely colors, too.

    Those sheep are simply adorable. I just want to run my hand over their wool. They look so adorable! Hope your weekend is off to a great start. Mine is a bit off. I feel like I'm in a time warp.

  30. Forgot to mention how much I like that new blog banner. It's adorable.

  31. Wow- catching the flying geese in the sunrise sure made a spectacular photo. That was worth a little chill and early rising to see. Its just beautiful. Those sheep are also great. I love farm animals. There is something about being near a farm that connects you back to the earth. I don't what what or why that is for me. Loving the new banner too! Also finally, your journal page today is wonderful. There's something fun about this dancing lady. Maybe she has some Druid or other tribal soul that is making her connect with nature too. Anyhow, this post has made me think about that connection. Have a great start to your weekend. Hugs-Erika

  32. Two things always make my heart sing -- sunsets and sheep. I love your sheep photos -- they have such a beautiful, sweet countenance. The close-ups are just fabulous. And the sunsets -- oh my! How lucky you were to catch the geese in flight -- and against that terrific sky.

    Is that a new banner? I like it very, very much!

  35. Oh My! This is fabulous Valerie - dancing through Autumn sounds good to me! I love your photos - so lucky to get those geese in shot! The sheep seem to be having their lambs very late! I hope it doesn't turn too cold just yet! Hugs Chrisx
