A dwelling place for the soul

Hi Everybody!

For Elke's 'Landscapes of the soul' challenge at 
Art Journal Journey I have a hybrid piece put together
with various elements from Serif and me. I wrote the little verse 
especially for Elke:

For Tag Tuesday, autumn/Halloween I have a digital tag
made using my own elements and artwork:

Some more photos from our trip to Kaarster See:


We spotted these friendly animals in a field as we drove by:

The end:

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

  6. What lovely artworks, your tag especially pulls me in. I love your photos as well, you really capture such beauty.

  7. I love the quote on your digital fall piece! An your tag background is so colorful. Beautiful!

  8. Wow, both of your art pieces today are really gorgeous Valerie. You really nailed the fall feel, and I must say that little mouse on the tag almost missed my eye but it's a perfect addition. It's a very nice poem for Elke too. The goat in your photo has quite the expression on his face too. :) Happy mid-week. Hugs-Erika

  9. Lovely piece. And beautiful words. Awesome!

  10. A stunning page, the words that you wrote are beautiful and so is your tag.

  11. I really enjoyed the AJJ entry. Such caring and thoughtfulness. It was certainly impassioned. And it had lots of birds, too! I really enjoyed the tag with its great background, too.

    I laughed and laughed at the last photo from your trip. Of course, there were many photos I enjoyed, so it's a bit sad to have this trip end already. Hope you are finally feeling well again, so you can take another day trip soon.

    1. Glad it made you laugh - I couldn't resist it!

  12. I checked your latest posts - your autumn looks as beautiful as here in Finland :) But here it will soon change, zero nights are coming at the end of the week and day temperatures will be just above plus, brrrrr....
    Have a great day!

  13. Such a pretty page and I love your verse. I enjoyed the walk around the lake. I'm like those daisies trying to hold on to the last rays of Summer. And the last photo made me laugh. Thanks for starting my morning with a smile.

  14. Oh, that tag! Wow! And loving your photos today -- the color and especially the fun animals!

  15. Two great autumnal creations - I especially love your glorious altered tag using elements of your own work. And thanks for taking us on another lovely walk with your photos.
