Fairy Stairs, Moon and Stars

It's another cold and sunny day here; hope the sun is shining for you, too! Yesterday I went for a walk in the woods with Emily, my four-footed friend. It looked like a carpet of leaves had been rolled out in the woods, it was really pretty, and I love the scrunchy sound of the leaves. And if you have ever wondered how a little fairy climbs onto a tree trunk - I have the answer: Fairy Stairs!



And I made the last pages in my journal, and will be starting my new one this week. I started out just making patterns, and then the star developed, and then the moon to accompany it. I used black ink to draw the images, and coloured the pages with pastel chalks, as I love the soft colours they give.




I think the pictures of moon and stars saying goodnight are a nice way to finish my journal, which has given me a lot of fun in the past 2 1/2 months.

Have a good day you all, take good care of yourselves, and thanks for dropping by!

  12. Wow, those look like mushroom steps. We get mushrooms growing on some of our trees as well as the soil out back. Beautiful. That second photo with those color of oranges/yellows is just awesome. You should print it out to make a journal page out of it. I love it. Must have been a very enjoyable walk and hope Emily your family pet member (FPM) enjoyed it as well. Take care and hope you are over your cold.
