New Challenge at TIOT - Autumn Blessings

Hi Everybody!

Autumn is always my fave season, I love the colours, the falling leaves, the cooler air and misty mornings. Today I am sharing a tag I made. The moon is one of my photos, other embellishments are from Serif. As always you have 2 weeks to join us at TIOT, and please have a look at the lovely creations of my teamies there. We are all looking forward to seeing what you create. Projects of all formats are welcome:



And then I magicked the tag onto a journal page with a beautiful lady, and am linking to Wendy's vintage challenge at AJJ.



These photos were taken on one of the good weather days:













And a couple of funnies: 


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

  4. Hi Val, good morning! Lovely art and photos again, I love how you made the tag into a journal page again, clever! The funnies are good, too. That's about the limit of my winter canning, too, the kids would devour it in a few days! Hugs, Sarah

  6. Good morning Valerie: Artwork featuring an owl is already elevated one notch above the rest. It's a lovely bird and I have taken note that it is perched on a pumpkin, something I have never seen in all my years of ornithological meanderings. The fields around here are full of pumpkins so I will have to take my binoculars and sixty-power telescope and scan them one by one. Who knows, words of wisdom may also be inscribed on the pumpkin of choice. I see you got busy with your esoteric jargon again. An ignoramus like me has no idea what magicking the tag onto the journal page means, but I am sure that the members of the Sisterhood of Crafters are all in on your secret. We went for a lovely walk yesterday and will be joining the fellow members of our Tuesday group in a couple of hours to meander anew. Fall is indeed a lovely time of year. Hugs and kisses. David

    1. Good morning, dear David! Here we have owls known as pumpkin owls, which love to sit in places where they can be seen. The owls are literate, of course, and like to write sentiments on their pumpkins, to bring some sense to the people who spot them. They are, unfortunately, once again confined to Balconia! And don't tell me you don't know how to magick a tag onto a journal page! Don't you learn any tricks these days? Or perhaps your magic wand needs a new battery! Hope you have a great walk with your friends today, have fun! Hugs to you both!

  7. I love your tag and subsequent journal page. Absolutely gorgeous!

    I also would like your canning recipe! I need to put up a little something for those bleak winter nights.

    As always, I enjoy the photos of your surroundings, especially the walkway through the tunnel of trees!

    Best wishes!

    1. Thanks Fonda, glad you like it! Yes, it's wise to get a store in for those long, dark nights! We have lovely places to walk around here, and I enjoy being outside as much as I can! Have a great week!

  10. Wow, such a beautiful tag and your page is stunning! I love all the elements that you put together, everytime I look I see something new; the owl with the glitter and sparkle looks so amazing 😀. Your photos are wonderful too, it looks like summer is staying around for a little longer with the blue skies and sunshine. Thanks for the inspiration and wishing you a lovely week! Hugs Jo x

  11. That owl tag is amazing! I love it. It would be great in my owl book-smile. And when you added it to your page and that lovely lady it makes an even more wonderful piece. Perfect for Wendy's challenge too. And I am with you with some cooler less humid weather. My poor bees have been fighting some mold on the cover of their house and I am hoping this week with less heat they can clean it out and be gone with it. Loving the quote about the dog too. That is so true. Hope the week is going well. Hugs-Erika

    1. Glad you like my owl, feel free to print it out for your owl book. I've been hearing an owl again the past few nights, but I haven't seen it. Sorry about the mo(u)ld on the bees' hive, hope it goes away soon. Dogs are always friendly creatures. A man I see every morning has two Irish wolfhounds, and they always run to greet me, I just hope they don't knock me down, but they seem to like me! Have a great day, take care, hugs!

  17. Your owl tag is spectacular. It's even nicer that you have added it to a stunning journal page using Wendy's theme at AJJ. Very creative art and great way to tie the two challenges together.

    You have some beautiful areas and it doesn't look like autumn at all in your part of the world. Still, quite stunning photos.
