We had a cold, wet and windy day here, lovely weather for
wellies and raincoats! The sun showed itself for a few minutes in between showers, but not much. The clouds left some gaps this evening, so I was able to enjoy the view of the moon glowing in the dark sky, just wonderful.
Last week I made a spooky forest scene for Art Journal Journey, deep in the forest. My picture shows a ghostly, white forest which can only be seen during the month of October, when it slowly comes to life; during the rest of the year, it just seems to be a collection of dead and dreary trees. It wakes up when it hears the raucous laughter and festivities from the pumpkin field - the pumpkins there are notorious party animals. If you are ever nearby, take my advice - go in the other direction!
I used an A3 sheet of paper, painted the background with some black and white acrylics left over from another project, and then had fun putting it all together, The pumpkins are part of a paper napkin that Jeannette sent me recently, together with other fun Halloween stuff. I sketched the trees with a white pen, and coloured them with white oil pastels to give a chalky look. The witch and the trees are die cuts. I am also linking to Simon Monday challenge, Falling in love with - Halloween!
The clouds were fascinating to watch today:
There was an abundance of fungi in the park:
Autumn is a wonderful time, even in the rain!
And the crowning glory was once again the moon.
Here's wishing you all a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
