Sunday this n that

Hi Everybody!

Today I am sharing my last scrappy tag for Tag Tuesday,
our theme ends Monday evening. I have had the flower 
 fairy tags and images in my scrap box for ages, they came free
with a magazine many years back. The background was
coloured with DIs and stamped with LaBlanche stamps
in archival black. I added the fairy, and a cut out bird
with a flower in its beak. The ribbon trim was recycled
from an old project.

For Jo's 'Poetry in motion' theme at Art Journal Journey I
have a painted, collage, stamped, stenciled and sewn page. I
think I overdid it a bit, it looks rather crowded. I was trying
to cover up a stain I made.... It is also meant 
as a reminder for 'In your garden' at TIOT:

And some photo taken on my walks to and from our little town this week:

Have a great Sunday, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by.


  1. Stunning tag and gorgeous AJ, delightful post, as always you never fail to deliver the best.xx

  2. Hi Val, great post, as always. The tag is so pretty, love the background, too, and wish my hair looked like that fairy's! Great journal page with those sweet little paper dolls, you have been busy again. Lovely photos! The zoo was nice, the kids were happy. I'll ring you after lunch and tell all.... Hugs, Sarah

  3. both of your art pieces today are so full of joy! I love the theme. The paper doll images were brilliant to add in and the poem on that piece was so true.:) I haven't thought about paper dolls in years/ And the flowers on your walk are gorgeous, but I was really struck by that heart shaped log holder. I need on of those for next to my woodstove. Happy Sunday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  4. Fabulous tag with your scrap wonders and also another beaiful journal page.

    More fantastic flower photographs and the amazing heart with the wood stored in it. Such a lot to take in today

    Love Chrissie xx

  5. The little fairy image is so adorable on your lovely tag and you have such pretty bits of ribbon in your scrap box too, they finish it beautifully! Your page for Art Journal Journey is fabulous and the poem evokes childhood memories of how magical gardens are, I even think the words are true today even though I'm a lot older ... lol 😉. I adore the bright colours and your paper dolls, I remember making them when I was young so they are perfect to accompany the poem along with all those wonderful embellishments and images you have chosen! Thanks so much for creating such a happy magical page for AJJ, you have brightened my day 😁. Happy Sunday! J 😊

  6. Such a pretty tag. Your AJJ page is not crowded, love that you covered up the stain. Enjoyed your stunning photos today! Happy Sunday.

  7. Garden tags and pages showing happy times in a garden. I enjoyed the pictures on your walk. I want to get some black eyed susans for the meadow. My mother had some in her garden. The little orange thingies made me smile. As kids, we used to throw them at each other. Beautiful flowers. I'll have to show my friend Red, the log holder. Cute and practical

  8. Your art is amazing today - both - the tag and the page - just BEAUTIFUL and nice impressions of your walk!
    Happy start of the new week - thank you for another beautiful entry linked to AJJ!

  9. LOVE the tags ♥♥♥ Free art supplies is always great! The journal page fits the theme perfectly too. Great photos from your walk again. I love seeing your world in photos ♥

  17. I just love your tag background. The pretty fall colors and those swirls are so gorgeous. Your journal page has so much fun color and a perfect backdrop for the paperdolls.

  18. Beautiful tag and page Valerie. I love the colours, and the idea of a secret place in the woods.
    Wonderful photos too, your town looks very pretty!

  19. I love Cicely M Barker's Flower Fairies, and the Blackthorn Fairy you've used here is my absolute favourite of all of them - so you can imagine I love the tag! Your enchanted garden page is just that - enchanting - and the words are magical. And thank you for taking us on a Sunday stroll around town with the photos too - lovely.

  20. Lovely tag and the flowery addition makes it even more special. And really nice photos around town. Greetings!

  21. The second one is great but the first one captured and held me.
    Our walk was wondrous. I especially loved looking at the house through the trees.

  22. Another lovely post and I don’t think you overdid it at all – it just makes your page even more beautiful.
    Have a lovely week, Barbara

  23. great and love your tag, the wood in the heart on photos are very sweet

  24. What a beautiful tag, I love those pretty colours, and your paper dolls made me smile - I used to love making these, and paper snowflakes too xx

  25. I love both your art pieces! I think they are so pretty! I don't think you over did it! Gorgeous photos!! Love the stacking wood in the heart! Big Hugs!

  26. Both the tag and page are so full of color and joy! Loving the flowers to carry on the summer!
    Speaking of flowers! I can not believe there are still so many in bloom for this time of year! I really must reorganize my flowers to do the same!
    What is that white flowering tree- I just love those blossoms! I wonder how they would dry!

  27. That tag has such a happy feel to it and I love your pink! As always, you are Germany's best travel ambassador!
