Grunge and glass

Hi Everybody!

For Art Journal Journey, Susi's collage theme,
I have a mixed media/hybrid collage. I made my men very grungy after
 cutting them from a collaged and painted piece,
and added some extra blobs and splats.
The alphas are from Serif.

I snapped the  twinkling lights of the airport and the first light 
of the sun early this morning from my window:

The raven was waiting for me to dish up his breakfast:

And Here are a few more photos from the
wonderful glass museum:

An Art Nouveau Window:

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


  1. I love the colors of your art piece, the blues with the lighter colors are so lovely. Your photographs are wonderful too.

  2. Your collaged men are real grungy tough guys, love the colours. The glass in the museum is wonderful, such glorious colours! Hugs, Sarah

    hugs jenny

  4. Beautiful page without faces! Lovely photos of the glass museum, amazing work on the pieces.

  5. This piece is very interesting. I love what you have been doing with the body shapes. And I also love the glass because -- well, what's NOT to love about gorgeous glass!

  6. DIe boygroup sieht fabelhaft aus und die morgentlichen Fotos sind sehr schön! Was für tolle Dinge dieses Museum behwerbergt! Großartig!
    Danke für die Museumstour!
    Schönen Mittwoch!

  7. Marvelous grungy fellas. Like the inky blots too. Blown glass is pretty but nothing compared to that window. Xox

    1. Yes, it is wonderful, I stood and looked at it for ages.

  8. Oh my gosh, that glass is wondrous.
    Your grunge guys are fun:)

  9. Wonderful page Valerie and great idea to make the men look different with the splashes and splatters.

    Lovely to see the lights of the airport as my daughter lands there quite often and even arrived there myself years ago. Not as splendid as it looks when you show it these days.

    The glass museum is just amazing with so many very beautiful items to admire.

    Thank you for sharing everything

    Love Chrissie xx

  10. Cool! I love those cool silhouettes. Blessings!

  11. I like the idea of grungy ... not sure what it means, but I can guess.

    Oh my goodness, the glassware is stunning ....reeeeeaaaaalllyy like it

  12. Fantastic grungy collage Valerie ( I love that kit those alphas come from).
    Thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the glassware - especially any that catch the light and cast coloured shadows.
    The piece with the bird was really lovely.
    Hope you are feeling better.

  13. Wow! Stunning page Valerie! Some great morning shots - love the silhouetted raven! Thanks for showing more of that gorgeous glass! Hugs, Chrisx

  14. Gorgeous piece Valerie, for some reason your men remind me of miners setting of down the mine. Fabulous photographs today too xx

  15. Diese farbigen Silhouetten sehen klasse aus und die zarten Texturen im HG auch,super gemacht. Meister Rabe hast du schön eingefangen und die Glassachen sind ja megaschön. So schöne Galle´-Vasen habe ich als junges Mädchen mal in Ungarn bewundert, hätte ich immer gerne besessen.
    Liebe Grüße

  16. Wow- I love your piece today Valerie. It looks like it was made out of batik fabric, which is really fun and gives it such great color "texture". Hope you're feeling better and are having a good week. Hugs-Erika

  18. Its a gorgeous grungy style collage Valerie, those men look fantastic.

  22. Playing catch-up here, and loving the glass. It's so difficult to photograph glass behind glass, but you did an excellent job. It was all so very lovely.

    Speaking of lovely, I really enjoyed the collage entry you created. Your men are simply awesome!
