The colours of Autumn for AJJ

The Colours in my World today 

 are the colours of Autumn

The trees are shedding their leaves  and give a real crunch underfoot when walking on them.
They all haven't changed colour as yet, but  many  are showing, yellows, oranges
  and rusty hues as autumn tightens its grip on the countryside around my home.

On the left. is how it all began, with one side of the spread  shaded with green watercolours.
The other side was a mop up page.
I then used stencils for the leaves.
 The child is a stamped image.

Thank you  for calling in today and for all the support you have given me  this month while I have been the Guest hostess for Art Journal Journey.
Only two more days to  go, I wonder what my colours will be tomorrow.


  1. You must be so proud of this page Yvonne, it is stunning and the most beautiful colours imaginable.xx[aNNie]

  4. Beautiful journal spread, love the colours. Glad you had fun with your theme this month. I have an autumn page ready too, will try to do a post later. Hugs, Valerie

  5. This is really fabulous. Most impressive. It's so hot here, the leaves have not yet turned, and when they do, they immediately turn brown. I simply adore this beautiful autumn inspired piece you created. Your quote is so true, too.

  6. Nice page. I love these fall colors maybe because I am ready for the heat to go and the cool weather to arrive. You did a wonderful job-I like how you stenciled those leaves. Have a fabulous day, and thanks for hosting such a great theme this past month. Hugs-Erika

  7. So beautiful! absolutely LOVE these amber and brown colors!

  8. It's a pretty Autumn page, love the sweet Girl stamp. The colors of this season are quite lovely, but I don't look forward to the next season...Winter!

  11. Fabulous autumn colours, glowing with the last of the sunshine. I've been wondering whether I "need" those DW girls, and I think you've just nudged them on to the Christmas wishlist!

  13. I love autumn and you have captured its beauty on your page wonderfully 😁. The vibrancy of the greens with those autumn colours are amazing and I love your mop up page too! Your little girl is adorable and the quote is perfect 😁. The leaves are starting to change here, although I haven't enjoyed walking on crunchy leaves yet - that's one of my favourite pastimes too! Wishing you a Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊

  14. Gorgeous background work and what an inspiring sentiment. Hugs, Autumn
