Some digital play

Hi Everybody!

Today I have had a fun, digital playtime, so no
extra mess to clear up in the kitchen - it's so full just
now that I must tidy up before starting something new!
For Tag Tuesday, our theme of anything goes,
I made a bird tag. These are the little birds that wake
me day for day at 4 AM when I would like to sleep!
I am also linking to Digitally made challenges.
It also fits our new theme at TIOT, feathered friends.
The digital elements are from Mischief Circus, Serif and me.

For Art Journal Journey I have another completely digital piece, 
using digis from Mischief Circus, Gill and me

These are the photos taken on top of the gasometer in

And some more photos taken inside:

The gorgeous owl was opposite the table we sat at
to drink a much needed cup of cappuccino:

The sunrise has been wonderful each day, I don't miss
a thing as the birds wake me....

I was very sad to see the news about the terrible attack on a
concert for kids and young people yesterday evening
in Manchester. My heart goes out to all those affected
by this tragedy.

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


  1. Beautiful pieces, I love everything you make, they all have your own, unique style. The tag reminds me of the view from your balcony, and the journal page is fantastic. Love the muted colour. Great photo, as always, I hope we can visit the Gasometer next month. Have a nice evening, hugs, Sarah

  2. I love your digital pieces! Carefully done.
    Love the owl so much, thanks!!

  3. The birds images are awesome Valerie!
    Warm hugs from Lula

  4. Your digital pieces are juat amazing and fabulous photos!

  5. Thank you for sharing your lovely digital bird tag with us at Digitally Made. The sunflares background is perfect for it.

  6. Beautiful bird tag and wow on the digital piece! Enjoyed the views today.

  7. What lovely art pieces! I especially love the second one, it's so sweet and charming... How high up you went! Your photos are wonderful.

  8. I love your digital tag with that sunlit background! Your journal page too has that wonderful dappled light! I can see the influence from your photos! The views from the gasometer are wonderful!
    It has been dreadful day here in Manchester! Relatives wondering if we are OK…the answer is yes, we are but so sad that this dreadful event targeted so many families. The only thing that has kept us going is seeing stories of such kindness from members of the public, taxi drivers, hotels etc and the wonderful work of the emergency services! Hugs, Chrisx

  9. Wunderbar wieder mal deine Digitalen Werke und auch nochmal so tolle Fotos von Oberhausen. Herrlicher Ausblick dort aus luftiger Höhe. Danke fürs Teilen dieser fantastischen Bilder.
    Liebe Grüße

  10. A most impressive digital tag. I like the ray of sunshine and the birds with their feathers. They remind me of the birds I saw in my garden today. They were really chattering and dancing around. Yours are more colorful, since mine were robins.

    Your AJJ entry is lovely. It certainly shows elegance and beauty.

    The view from the top of the Gasometer is incredible. I almost got vertigo when I saw that first photo. You were really high up. And your camera takes great shots of far off vistas. Really, really incredible shots.

    1. It is very high, about 110 yards. But I loved being up there!

  11. Forgot to add that I really like that new blog header. The yellow is quite a change from the wisteria.

  12. Valerie your digital makes are just fabulous x love those beautiful birds on the first one but my favourite is the Friendship one with that sweet little girl.....love it!
    Gorgeous photographs as always

    Best wishes
    Annie xx

  14. Valerie, your digitals are simply wonderful!! I love the Treasured Friends!!
    Thanks for sharing the photos, but I must admit,
    the ones from the top
    made my stomach flip flop!!
    Yikes! teehee
    Sending hugs,Jackie

    1. I'm not afraid of heights, but don't like elevators!

  15. OK, lots to say. First of all-great new blog header Valerie. You have lilies blooming already? And both of your art pieces are just gorgeous. I love the little (what we would call) chickadees. Not sure what they are called in Europe. And I didn't know you could go outside on the top of the Gasometer. What great view it gave you. I never realized how flat it was there- but it makes sense seeing where it is located. And more fabulous wildlife photos. Wow! Hope you are enjoying your day. Hugs-Erika

    1. Chickadees are called 'tits'in England and 'Meisen' in Germany.

  16. I love your digital works -- and I also love your new blog banner -- I forgot to mention it before. You're doig beautiful work!

  17. Love, love, love your art. And the photos are, as always, great.
    The Manchester event was a true horror.
    Heartfelt thoughts and prayers sent their way.

  18. Great journal page and I love the tag, especially the sun rays. hugs, Teresa

  19. Lovely new bog header Valerie - the flowers are gorgeous.
    Awful news about what happened in Manchester and especially the age group targeted - such sad times we live in :(
    Love the bird tag (of course) - we often have those birds visit our feeders. Your AJJ piece is wonderful with the grungy textures and the sweet image of the little girl.
    Great photos of the gasometer etc but not sure about going up so high - I almost got vertigo too just looking down at the views :)
    Hope you've had a good day.... Gill xx

  20. I keep meaning to say how much I like the yellow flower in your header.

    Fantastic post again, I always enjoy seeing your photographs.
    I haven't got a good head for heights and you were very high up!!!

    Enjoy the rest of your week

    All the best Jan

  21. Bird tag Picture - Looks amazing and impressive, appreciate your creativity

  22. My heart goes out to everyone in Manchester (and their family and friends) too. So terribly sad.

    I love birds- although waking to them at 4am- not so much. Love the TAF and the page about Friendship~

    Beautiful views and that owl picture. Stunning. Love to see the sunrise photos. The sky is amazing. :)

  23. Your bird tags are so precious ♥♥♥♥ and do so love the journal page too. Great views from way up there and that owl photo is awesome. Your sunrises are beautiful... it's been a while since Mini and I were up for the sunrise. Kind of miss them ♥

  24. Hi Valerie, your tags and page are beautiful. Your creativity has no bounds!! You sure captured great shots from so high up. You are brave, I'm not fond of heights. The artwork there is very unique too. Lovely wake up photos. We are praying for Manchester.
    Have a nice weekend ahead. xo

  25. Your bird tag is gorgeous!! Once again, I am in awe of your digital work!

  26. Loved every jot and tittle of this post Valerie!
