Golden autumn colours for AJJ

Magical colours of Autumn.
When we look into our countryside or garden  at this time of the year,
 the colours seem to change  rapidly.
We may think of the.....
 Past................... how it all looked a few days ago.
Present........... how things have changes in a short time
Future............ the promise of a new season and how  everything will change yet again,
when nature works her magic on the countryside.

A Golden October page  for
Art Journal Journey

and Valerie's theme for this month, that I am really enjoying.
The inspiration over at AJJ is fantastic.

The original page in my  8 x 8 inch journal.
I used a variety of distress inks for the stamping of the leafy background. As well as a few swipes over with  diluted paint . ink etc
Hard to explain and it probably has a proper name,  but,
I put pool--blob of  colour, perhaps some distress crayon-- on a mat
 and use a  wet wipe to spread the colour.
[ They had   been allowed to dry  as I forgot to seal them back up,
 with a spray of water they are good to go] 

I am able to digitally punch  shapes in the the program I use for my digital pages.
On the right are the leaf shapes I wanted to use.

This is the digital leaf spray,
 being able to add shadows  change colours and size   is also a bonus.

The fairy was also added in the same way.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, your visit and comments I really appreciate.
