This weather this week is showing us that it is definitely autumn, with cold winds, rain, and morning mist, but also sunny intervals where it was possible to go for a walk. I love walking along the Rhine with the wind blowing in my face and the sound of the gulls in my ears, and so I have walked a lot and enjoyed the signs of autumn - berries on the trees and bushes, fallen leaves layered over the ground, and acorns and chestnuts falling. I love the textures and colours.
So it is no wonder that my journal page this week is about autumn. I couldn't paint much, as my hand is still sore, but the stitches come out on Friday and then it should be easier.
I made 'Lady Autumn'. The first layer of leaves has been painted with acrylics in shades of brown, red and green , and then I added some of my die-cut and painted ones.
This was a fun make! I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin, and to Artful Times - scraps, as I have made the leaves from scrap paper.
I am also linking to AJJ - less is more. I am not sure that this is completely less is more, but there are some white areas, and for someone with tendencies to always add a little bit more, this is definitely less - well, more or less.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks for coming by!
