For Art Journal Journey, Indian summer, I made a mixed media piece.
I started by pasting an autumn leaf napkin onto an A3 sheet of paper with mod-podge. Then I used a large CWS birch-tree stencil to tone it down with white gesso. The birds were stamped onto tissue paper and also glued on with mod-podge. The quote and the owl were added digitally. I made this on the day after 'my' tree in front of the window was cut down.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday
hosted by Eva and Kristin.
Then I played around digitally and made a second version, with slightly altered colours, and people looking at the trees. I can't decide which version I like better.
Today was cold and damp, and I had the gardens at the old castle all to myself - except for the ducks and geese. The goslings are all fit and well and as big as their parents:
Mum still keeps an eye on them:
The autumn foliage and reflections were beautiful:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
