A night to remember for AJJ

Hannah has had quite a night  on the town celebrating a significant birthday with her friends.
As it is near Halloween the City is getting ready for the event.
The local witch is testing her broom
 and the Ghost ship is just about to dock at the quay.
She has taken this photo to add to her album of memories.

This digital page started off with   photos  of the area, taken at night,
in  Newcastle upon Tyne,
 with added stored digital elements and colour changes.
taken on the Quayside. It shows a number of its many bridges.

is the theme this month at Art Journal Journey

This photo taken  when the Tyne bridge was being built ...

A Royal opening by King George V .... in 1928

It was a bustling busy place for shipping back then.
In 2015 there  is a total of 7 bridges to take you across the  river Tyne
 in the space of one mile

Now the quayside  is a popular place for dining  in the many restaurants 
and  to meet with friends for a social night out.

Higher up the River Tyne is this single carriage way bridge at Newburn
built in 1893 and is the nearest bridge to where we live,  for crossing the river

Thank you for visiting me today , I hope you liked seeing  the old photos.

  7. What a super digital collage Yvonne with a fantastic story to it and I love to see all this photos .. super interesting! Thank you for sharing and thank you for joining Art Journal Journey again -

  8. Your picture is so atmospheric, with the blues, the Ghost ship and the witch flying past, what a great description to go with it. Fascinating to see so many bridges and how interesting to see the bridge being built in 1928 with other bridges already there behind it.

  9. Love your collaged page Yvonne, looks very 'spooktacular'. Loved the story too.
    Fabulous old pics of the bridge being built and the Royal opening.

  14. It's always fun to read the stories you weave into your journal pages. The witch is flying high, and I suspect the cat is hanging on for dear life. Since I will probably never get a chance to visit this area, I thoroughly enjoyed the photos and the history of this (and others) bridge.

  15. Wow, the page is beautiful. Nice idea.
    The old photos are great.
    Greetings Carola

  18. Very nice digital page Yvonne. I love the ghostly image in the background, and the ship makes it even a bit spookier! Fabulous!

  19. Love your layered digi collage - what a fabulous atmosphere you've created. Also loving the old photos of Newcastle. I've been lucky enough to spend some time there when the RSC was in town, and always loved it - a great city.
