More from the autumn fairy

Hi Everybody!

We are enjoying a few days of wonderful weather here,
truly a 'golden October', so I've been getting out as much
as possible to make the most of it. I managed to finish my
autumn fairy. It is an A3 mixed media piece using the 
home-made leaves I showed in my post here.
I am linking to Elke's lovely 'landscape of my soul'
theme at Art Journal Journey, and to Simon
Monday Challenge, anything but a card.

And some more autumnal photos fromThursday's trip to
Kaarster Lake. I found another fairy garden full of
tiny toadstools:

The play of light and shadow on the water always
fascinates me:

Berries galore:

Mr Cormorant taking a rest:

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


  1. Valerie! Your fairy turned out Gorgeous as I knew she would! Love her color and sparkle and so happy she has been released from the clock after a long year!
    Your photos...oh my! Glorious!! Mushroom and berry love here!
    Hugs,Jackie xx

  2. Your fairy looks wonderful in all her autumn finery, little R wants it, keeps trying to touch it! Fantastic photos, too, you always see things that others don't seem to see, I think you have a magic eye! (Not like Moody's though!) Enjoy your Saturday, hugs, Sarah

  3. huii ist das eine süsse Herbstfee, die ist so bezaubert wie bei dir der Herbst!Voller Pracht der Herbstfarben glitzert sie!
    Sagenhaft gemacht Valerie!
    Tolle Fotos, o sind das viele Plize im Feengarten, so mystisch. Was alles so noch bunt blüht mit den Beeren!
    Ich wüsnche dir einen schönen sonnigen Tag, bei mir ist leider windig trübe, mal hat es gergenet und mit 15 Grad nicht gerade heute das goldene Oktoberwetter ich hoffe morgen wirds besser bei mir.
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  4. Beautiful goddess. I love the crown of leaves in her hair and how they adorn her dress. Looks like Autumn is in full swing both on your page and outside. Other than the grocery store, I've never seen so many mushrooms. They look like tiny umbrellas. The walk around the lake is lovely. So much color. I especially love the little yellow flower. A tiny sun holding onto Summer. Oh, wait, that's me. :-D Have a good day!

  5. Your Autumn Fairy and quote may be my favorite yet! I love the colors (fall is my favorite time of year) and I adore fairies. I was a woodland fairy one year many years ago for Halloween. :)

    So glad you are having such a beautiful fall and that you are getting out so much. Your pictures are just fabulous. Love all that you have been capturing. The "tunnel" through the trees with light peeking in is so cool!! Thanks for sharing. ;)

  6. A really beautiful Autumn fairy Valerie and love her rich coloured leafy clothing and her lovely wings too.
    Wonderful peaceful photos too and especially love the mushrooms.
    Glorious sunny day here too and so warm I had a short sleeved t shirt on this morning.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  8. Your completed fairy is adorable, I love her! I also enjoyed your equally magical photos today, wonderful October!

  9. Your fairy came out beautifully. I love how she sparkles and is full of autumn colors and joy. :) And I can't get over how much your lake looks like it could be here in New Hampshire. What a great palce to walk. :) Happy rest of your Saturday. Hugs-Erika

  10. Beautiful! I love the fall colours

  11. The autumn fairy is just precious.
    Oh my gosh that walkway is like a magic tunnel:) And I love the berry shots.
    Hoping your weekend is full of sparkle.

  12. Your Autumn Fairy is glorious Valerie! xx

  13. Beautiful fairy, such vibrant colors and I love the quote. Your photos are fantastic! I agree with your thoughts on play of light and shadows on the water. The yellow flower really pops. Love the reflection of light on the berries, the beautiful vista, and sun dappled path...all so lovely!

  14. Your Autumn Fairy turned out fantastic. I love her outfit, too. You put a LOT of work into that piece, and it shows.

    Love the toadstool garden, the canopy of trees and the bird on the post near the water. All your photos are great, but those stood out for me!

  15. Your Autumn Fairy is a real beauty. It is a gorgeous mixed media page, it must have taken you hours to create this artistic project.
    I loved the photos of the tiny mushrooms , a magical garden came straight into my mind when I saw them.

  17. What a fabulous autumn fairy, Valerie. She is so beautiful and sweet! I love your page, my friend! As for your photos, they are lovely. My favourites are the mushrooms and the little cormorant! Kisses!!!

  18. Oh I just love your finished fairy! Her wings and neckless (as well as the hair of course) are all brilliant finishing touches and I adore the quote too!!! And of course the photos are stunning like usual! Enjoy those magical walks!

  19. ♥ Another great use of your beautiful Autumn leaves :) and what a fantastic fairy garden again. Must have been a magical walk judging by all of the awesome photos you've shared.

  20. Stunning colours they just shine.xx [aNNie]

  21. great fairy love her, love the photos with autumn toadstools in and the rest of the fall photos..great love this time of year

  22. What wonderful colours you have used in this project Val. Love it Lots. Beautiful pictures as always, I've missed so much this year but on the way back now, so hopefully I'll be back again sooner rather than later. Weather has been awful overnight as we got the tail end of Ophelia, don't like high winds like this at all as we are surrounded with trees. Hope you're well and enjoying every new day. Hugs Rita xxxx

    The scenic photos are wonderful to see as well. You've found gorgeous views in many places xx
