Autumn colour at TIOT

Hi everyone, our new theme at Try It On Tuesday is all about the Colours of Autumn!
The Design Team have really excelled themselves this time with all the glories of Autumn.
I was lucky enough to get a stamp that made me think of Autumn days straight away.
I have always had a fascination for barns, garden sheds, stables ....anywhere connected with the storage of farm or gardening equipment but my dream has always been to visit a barn of the style of barns found in the USA.
The stamp has one tall tree in front of the barn but with a bit of  masking I have added it again on the right as well as at the side of the barn.
This is my idea of an ideal Autumn - coloured leaves blowing onto the ground right in front of my barn.
Unfortunately the frost arrived this morning and a lot more leaves are just falling from the trees

We have seen our fair share of Autumn colours already this year at Kew Gardens and at Dunham Massey - both featured earlier in my blog but I still dream of visiting New England in the Autumn...or should I say Fall?

I am entering this at 
Art Journal Journey, for Eileen's Dreams or Wishes theme.
Stamping Sensations - Trees, Leaves Autumn theme
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Fall/Autumn colours

Thanks for looking, Chris

Absolutely wonderful... I should love to be walking up that driveway right now. I completely agree about barns and sheds and stables - I have whole Pinterest boards of them! The colours here are simply gorgeous, and what a brilliantly detailed image.

OMGosh, Chris. That's a STAMP? I thought it might be a napkin. You are TRULY the queen of stamping. I simply adore this. It is awesome. Thanks, too, for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey using Eileen's theme, too. You did a GREAT job of masking, too.

Beautiful, Chris - and Dunham Massey is what came to mind when I first saw it...that little building up on the right somewhere... it's 6 years since i was there, so my memory of it isn't too vivid, but I fell in love with that little building. Great use of masking and lovely imagery.

It's a beautiful, dreamy, peaceful-looking page, Chris. You did a fabulous job! It looks like watercolor. I wonder which type you use, markers, pan paints, etc. Anyway, thank you for submitting yet another page for the Dream theme at AJJ. Eilen xx
