Autumn wishes and colour!..

I am using another new stamp (to me) today - this time a Lavinia stamp that I saw in an old magazine!!
The fairy is blowing bubbles and I used to believe that wishes were carried in bubbles!
So here she is converting those bubbles into colourful leaves!

I used Distress oxides and a 13 arts stencil to make the background.

I have made this for Eileen's Dreams or Wishes theme at Art Journal Journey

I would also like to enter at 
Stamping Sensations - Trees, leaves, Autumn 
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Fall/Autumn

Here are more photos from our walk at Dunham Massey the other day.

 Thanks for looking, Chris

I apologize for being so far behind in my visit. I'm in catch-up mode, although I may never catch up. I love your imagination and how you turned bubbles into leaves. Your art is fabulous and I'm so delighted you chose to share this with us using Eileen's theme at Art Journal Journey, dear Chris.

What fabulous photos. I don't think autumn has quite arrived where you walked, but you got some incredible shots, regardless.

A lovely page Chris, I do like the Lavina fairy blowing bubbles/wishes, gorgeous colours in the background.
Loved seeing the photos from Dunham Massey, we visited in Spring time and I do remember the lovely gardens, but most of all the Magnolia trees were magnificent.
