Autumn leaves!

I have been having fun with my journal in between meetings, cinema trip and the dreaded HW!!
It started as a mop up with some gold and orange paint but I could't think what to do with it so out came the gesso and then some sprinkling with Infusions.
A little happier now..
Next some playing with Infusions and deli paper onto which I stamped some leaves from Lin Brown's Paper Artsy sets.

I added these to the page with Gel medium and added some more of Lin's text and circle stamps

I wrote Autumn Almanac onto some inked deli paper and stuck that on too

I have been inspired by Valerie's fabulous Indian Summer/Autumn theme at Art Journal Journey.

Thanks for looking, Chris

Great page in the pinks, love the way you made the leaves (I've still never tracked down deli paper) and enjoyed reading how you made this piece.

Oh dear Chris, that looks fantastic. The texture on the leaves is so wonderful, also the background. I like this soft red you used very much and the bronze colors looks very good to it. Great! Famous composition.
Dear Greetings
