My theme this week is once again Autumn, which I see all around me every time I go out. I made another journal page, which I painted with brown and red acrylics and treasure gold gilding wachs. I do not mix the colours, just dip the brush into them and cover the page to give an uneven mix of colours. The leaves were stamped using a three part stamp from Lavinia, using the colours peeled paint, rusty screw and aged mahogany, and then outlined with a brown gel-pen. The Da Vinci lady, Leda, has been stamped with aged mahogany onto speciality stamping paper, distressed with wild honey and antique linen, and fussy cut. The leaves are part of the batch I cut from painted and crackled paper a few weeks back. I added the vintage fruit scrap and some lace, and a verse from Robert Frost.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin, and to FSC, 'autumn colours' and to Simon Monday Blog - use a Simon Says product (Paints and gilding wax), AJJ - less is more,
and to Sugar Creek Hollow - Fall is in the air.
The tag has been made from corrugated card that was round a pack of biscuits, painted and distressed. I used stuff from my table to embellish it - old book paper, hessian, more of my leaves and another vintage scrap. Some thin ribbons, some beads and one of my hand-made beads were used to finish it.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by.
