Fallen leaves for AJJ


Another Autumn journal page for


Where Valerie is hosting this months theme of...
Indian Summer-Golden October- Autumn.



The page base  began with a watercolour wash , some brusho powders sprinkled on while it was still quite wet. A bit of texture was next
 using a stencil and paste.
I had a few dried leaves to use and some small die cut feathers. These I gave a rub over with gold gilding wax.
As I was sticking down the leaves , my vivid imagination took over, as I think one of the results looks a ''bit'' like  The Green Man face.
The owl is wooden this time and has been lurking in the bits box for ages. The quote was a digital addition.


Thank you for calling in to see me today, your visit and comments are very much appreciated.

  13. I had to laugh when I saw the quote AND the words you wrote about one of the leaves. I looked and it is true. One leaf does look a bit like the Green Man. I think the word bliss in the quote is what made me laugh. Other than that, it is a gorgeous entry and extremely textural.
