T stands for This and ThaT

Hi Everybody!

🌰🍄Here's wishing you all a great October filled with autumn colours.🍄🌰

At Tag Tuesday our Autumn / Halloween challenge is running for another week. I made another mixed media tag. I used more bits and bobs picked up outside, nature has lots of good crafty stuff on offer just now, combined with 2 different scraps of dp, some black netting, a feather and a paper doll turned into an autumn fairy. I am also linking it to Simon Monday Challenge, monochrome:

Tuesday is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a warm welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T gang. And it's 2nd on the 2nd at Elisabeth's, too. I am sharing 2 autumnal pieces made 2 or perhaps 3 years ago, and the first is also showing my cappuccino:

The second 2nd on the 2nd piece is a mixed media A3 piece:

And today I am sharing more photos of the sun and moon:

The moon taken a week back:

These photos were taken Sunday evening:

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

  5. Wonderful Autumn tag and pages.

  6. You did get some fantastic moon photos. And I love seeing your latest tag. You combined some fantastic fall bits and pieces. And happy early T day. It's nice to see David and his cup of coffee. Must be that coffee is a classic drink. (smile) Happy October. hugs-Erika

  7. I enlarged your tag and wow, what a show piece...fabulous

  8. The cute, fairy girl on the tag reminds me of the fairies from the 1930s version of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Oh, so Adam and Eve weren't kicked out of the garden because Eve ate the apple, but because Adam was tempted by the cappuccino. :-D Your art and artful photos are certainly very Autumnal. Enjoy your day!

  9. Gorgeous tag and artwork Valerie and I love your photos of the moon.

  11. You are an amazing and talented artist and photographer Valerie...WOW!!!
    You have truly added to the autumn spirit that I am feeling!

    Big Hugs~

  12. Happy T Tuesday! Those little cookies are perfect for the saucer, aren't they! The heat is still summery, but it feels like fall is coming and your photos capture that feeling :)

  13. Lovely Halloween offerings, beautiful photos!

  14. So so wonderful tag Valerie !! Absolutely amazing !! Love the colours, the composition and all the details, Great!!
    Love also the so stunning pages, and the coffee!!
    I wish you a very nice new week, and month !, big hugs, Caty

  15. OMG look at those moon shots! I had to borrow.
    Love the pieces. Enjoyed the first, giggled at the second and was entranced by the third.

  16. Your art today SCREAMS autumn. Beautiful images of autumn, in fact. I adore your beautiful tag, and those pods make great wings. How fortunate to find these nature bits, including the feather, while on your walk or outside your home.

    I remember both your T Tuesday and your Second on the 2nd posts. Who could forget David while imagining how to remove that leaf (GRIN). I even forgot how much I wanted to share that cappuccino with you.

    Your second look was amazing. The colors were so warm and rich, the art so inspiring. Thanks for sharing your beautiful autumnal tag, your cappuccino (and leaf), and your second look with us today. Thank you for all these beauties and the awesome moon shots that show what is going on in your world.

  17. All of your pieces are so festive. Love the fall colors. I especially can't take my eyes away from the one with the autumn of your life quote. Just beautiful.

    I am always amazed at the clear shots of the moon you are able to take. Mine always look a little blurry. Wonderful to see the sun and moon in so many different shots. Bravo. :)

    Have a wonderful week!

  18. A absolutely gorgeous autumn tag Valerie and I love the sweet found fairy you added together with the natural leaves and pods.
    The other pages looked fantastic as well, beautiful colours.
    Your photos of the moon looked awesome.
    Happy T day wishes Valerie.

    Thanks for your kind comment on my MIL which I much appreciate. Sorry not to be round as much too, just time constraints at the moment.

  36. As always, your artwork is lovely. It's as though you have an endless supply of artistic inspiration within you. Makes me wonder? Do you ever come up empty... I mean, something akin to a writer's block?

    And those moon shots!!! WOW. You have an uncanny ability to capture amazing shots of the sky. Really. I'm in awe.

  37. The colors in both pieces are purrfect.

  38. Lovely designs, and you must have an EPIC camera. Those moon shots! Whew!

  39. Looks like you had a good time for some creative.
    I forgot it was Friday.
    Coffee is on
