It's definitely Autumn!

Oh Yes! The nights are certainly drawing in now but recently we have also had that lovely yellow light when the sun shines!
The leaves here are already starting to change colour and if this weather keeps up hopefully it will be a slow process to enjoy and appreciate the changes! 
My page is about those first changes, nothing too intense at the moment but enough of a warning that Winter is on it's way!
Art Journal Journey have a new challenge Indian Summer, Golden October, Autumn and I have been looking forward to making an entry for it
I started this page with a coating of gesso. I used a PA leaf stencil and spritzed with some Sunset Beach Infusions - as you can see it ran a bit but I don't mind that! I added various inks and some paint with a baby wipe once the Infusions had dried.
I stamped my new Paper Artsy Eclectica Lin Brown 29 and 30 leaves and outlined the stencilled leaves with ink and added veins with a brown watercolour pencil! 
I flicked some drops of water over and dabbed it off straight away to lift the ink
I used two stamps from the Paper Artsy Lin Brown Eclectica 29 set and stamped the oats twice.
The Enjoy life is from Stampendous set
The weather forecast is for fine weather for a few more days at least so we are off to enjoy life at our caravan!

I would also like to enter the following challenges
Moo Mania and More - Drips and splatters
Stamping Sensations October challenge - Autumn
Penny Black October challenge - Autumn

Thanks for looking, Chris

I think the page is great, but I am finding the text colour hard to read on your change of background colour. the colours at Kew today definitely support your theory by the way!

Rita said...

Lost my comment, I think. I am still struggling with the new laptop.
This is gorgeous! I love anything that's botanical and the background is beutiful. :)

That's a wonderful page, Chris!!
And thanks for showing the first step,
which isn't probably the first one,
but the one before :)

This is such a delicate piece full of quiet beauty reflecting Autumn so well, the warmth that feels fragile and the delicate leaves rich in their crispy delicate beauty. This is full of poetry! A favourite for sure!
