Friday this and that

Hi Everybody!
It's nearly weekend!

For Paint Party Friday and Tag Tuesday, texture, I made a tag
using a hand-painted background, painted in
turquoise, green and blue Maya Gold paints.
I stamped the image in Archival black and embossed it 
with Ranger holographic EP. I matted it with 2 different 
backgrounds which I sewed together before adding the
embellishments. I love the colours and texture created
by the EP. I am also linking to Simon Monday challenge,

This is the wonderful throw and splash wall in the room where I
have my art group - I find it very inspiring:

 The space under the roof in the big barn at the farm/zoo is crammed
with interesting old things:

 A stream runs through the grounds which then flows into the
River Erft:

Some more of the inhabitants:

Just LOVE this one:

And this handsome one really knew it!:

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

  10. Your tag is stunning! I love streams running through woods. I remember those old sewing machines, my grandma had one. Beautiful photos of the 'inhabitants'.

  11. Wow, I love your tag - it's really fantastic!! The peacock charm adds just the right touch to the beautiful background.

  12. OHHHH I love the peacock tag. In fact where did you get that peacock? The art is amazing. There is great art when splashes just happen. More wonderful photos of the farm museum. Thank you for sharing them.

    1. The peacock was gifted me last year, and I have been hoarding it till now. I don't know where they are available.

  13. Gorgeous, glittery tag, Valerie, with such beautiful colors and textures. It was fun seeing the photos of the farm/museum. My mother had a sewing machine like that.

  14. Your tag is gorgeous. I love how you demonstrated the colours of the peacock in your background and it's feathers the white feather and sprig. Brilliant.
    hugs, Teresa

  17. Your tag has a great depth. I like the bird embelli, he looks quite satisfied with life.
    The throw and splash wall is terrific, are you allowed to add to it?

  18. Those purples and greens are so pretty together! And of course I love your fabulous animal shots. The barn looks like a pretty fascinating place with all those cool vintage things there. I'm afraid I wouldn't leave!

  19. Your tag looks like a fairy tale. Love the sparkle! And that throw and splash wall is fabulous. Happy weekend!

  20. How beautiful and magical your tag is, I love it! What gorgeous animals you photographed too.

  21. Its a gorgeous tag Valerie, the embossing powders are giving amazing glittery effects.
    More super farm photos, the animals do look so well looked after and contented.
    Have a good weekend.

  22. Your art work is so wonderful! I love the bacground colors! You have a great space to evolve yourself in, wow! And such many exciting old things in the barn! It's a museum! Lovely animals and do I see donkeys there as well? I love goats, they are so fun. And a lovely horse. Such a wonderful place also.

  23. The tag is absolutely amazing. I love how you added the metal peacock. It really makes it fabulous. And I love the donkeys in your photos. The one you mentioned is really amazing. I think donkeys/burros are really cute animals. They are often overlooked and underrated but that makes them more special. :) Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika
