In these days of restrictions and taking care of ourselves and each other it's difficult to remember to enjoy life as it is.
Let's face it though, Covid 19 is here and will stay as long as we let it!
There is so much around us at the moment though that we can still appreciate - the sunny days, (even if they seem little colder), the changing colours of the leaves on trees and plants, the stars in the clear skies at night(even on the edge of the city as we are) are shining brightly, the last blooms of the year are still around to cheer us, and, as the days get shorter, it becomes easier to accept staying in.
My page is my way of showing some Autumn beauty.
It started with this gelli print that I have been wanting to use for a while now, it took some patience to get to the stage of pulling off just part of the paint on the Gelli plate.I added some random text and some stencilling through an Aall and Create hexagon stencil.
The rose image is from a Studiolight collection. I stamped it onto some cream card, coloured with Derwent metallic paints and fussy cut it. I added it to my page with a piece of corrugated card to which I had also added some metallic paints and a scrap of cheesecloth that was on my desk.
The quote is by Visible Images and is one of my favourites.
