Lady in shadows for AJJ

Autumn shadows
I have been making another hybrid page today for
Art Journal Journey

and Valerie's
theme of Indian summer-Golden October- Autumn.
 During  autumn  one of my joys is to watch the trees and leaves change colour, almost every day, there  are new shades to see, even if its in my own garden.
 Sweeping up the leaves is another subject.
Shadows are cast and whole areas are plunged into shade,  while  other areas are still enjoying the some autumn sun. Now thats quite magical to me..

Base layer, was embossed ,
 some music trimmings glued before before a water colour wash was added.
I have used  this background style before and it is so useful to have on the desk

This is a  page of colouring in from
The  Colouring  Studio  [Somerset magazines],
which I used as the next layer.
 The  rest of the details and images were added using the digital program I use.[MCS]

Thank you for calling in to see me , I always appreciate your comments


  1. Smart adding some of those coloring book images into your piece Yvonne. They give it a pop of bright color. And another owl. I am loving all these owls. I like the old photo image too. It all works together so beautifully. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hugs-erika

  2. A fantastically atmospheric page, Yvonne. I love those Autumn fruits and seeds, beautifully coloured, and the digi images as always add a touch of magical depth.

  3. I am noticing shadows in my garden, too. The way the light plays off images is unique, but the light the plays off my furniture makes it look dusty this time of year, even if I've dusted and used a high gloss polish on it. I adore your page, though. The background is fantastic and the digital part is superb. I love how you framed her face in a heart. Now THAT'S what I call magical!

  4. Beautiful project Yvonne. Love the seed pods. Fab layers.
    Hugs Flo xx

  16. This is beautiful, Yvonne!! Thanks for your comment on my GG post. I realized I had not added the free stamp and have done so now. There was a mix-up in months with mine this month and last, and I completely forgot about it. Sorry about that! So if you go back to my Gecko Galz Fall Into Autumn post, you will find the free stamp now.
