Stormy weather

Hi Everybody!

For Art Journal Journey I have a hybrid piece. The background was painted, distressed and collaged. The 'graffiti' quote was stamped onto a gelli print and added together with the other images, and the chalked quote was added digitally:

I have stayed home over the weekend, but the sky and clouds
were worth taking photos of, and I much enjoyed watching the
ever changing heavens on Saturday evening:

And early Sunday morning:

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


  1. Sorry you're still not feeling well, you need to rest up for a good few days. Your journal page is great fun, love it. The clouds really look stormy. Take care, hugs, Sarah

  2. I love how you cover the faces which are not permitted for this challenge! Beautiful skies Valerie!

  3. What wonderful and clever art! The sky photographs are amazing too.

  4. Your painted, distressed and collaged background is fantastic, I love the grunge effect you have created! In contrast your skies have a heavenly feel to them - the blue skies with the white and black clouds are stunning! Wishing you a great week! J :-)

  5. Your graffiti page is very cool. I think it was a great idea for collage. Loving the sky shots too- we have cold and rain today. Hopefully it won't turn into snow over night. hope you are feeling better too. Hugs-Erika

  6. I have never been any good with graffiti, so I really enjoyed this spread. As always, I loved the clever way you covered the face.

    Your sky photos appear so moody. They are definitely enjoyable to watch.

    Glad to read you stayed home this weekend, so I hope you feel better soon. Have a great Monday, dear.

  7. Das ist eine spitzen Graffiti-Seite Valerie und
    die Wolken sind doch immer wieder schön anzusehen!
    Gute Besserung und eine schöne neue Woche!

  8. First of all I just love your beautiful new header--a taste of a fine day which we haven't seen for ages.

    Love your collage page with lots to look at and take in.

    Love Chrissie xx

  9. Cool artwork Valerie - lovely and grungey. Love the wording :)
    Lovely selection of sky photos... its grey and raining here today.
    Hope your day is much brighter and that you are starting to feel better - take care and wishing you a good week... Gill xx

  10. I know you get this all the time but I LOVE this piece. It says it all.
    The sky put on quite a show for you didn't it?

  11. Love the photos of the sky. The journal page looks fantastic all grungy and interesting.
    Hope you are feeling a bit better today.

    p.s. Its a super new header.

  12. Your piece perfectly captures my mood these days. It is so spot on. And the sunsets -- a needed calm. Lovely.

    1. It's good to be able to at least lose some frustrations with art!

  13. Your art journal piece reminds me of a recent trip to Northern Ireland and the Peace Wall. Your work is very emotive. I also love your cloud photographs. It has been so wet today it’s been difficult to see the sky so this was a real treat, thank you.

  14. I melt for sunsets and sunrises. So, so beautiful.

  15. I love the graffiti piece! So fun and grungy, love it!

  16. Wow what an interesting sky you had, all we had was rain, rain, and more rain! I love your collage such fun to see how you cover the faces :-) xx

    Deine Collage ist auch wieder sehr originell gestaltet.
    Liebe Grüße
