Autumn's Colours at AJJ

 Hi everyone, we are delighted to introduce a new topic at Art Journal Journey for October, where Tracey is hosting this month with her theme - 'My Favourite Colour is October'

I look forward to seeing fungi sprouting up everywhere in Autumn and I love the golden light we get in Autumn too (when it isn't raining that is)

I layered papers on my page, some already coloured and then added some metallic paint, and then added some metalic card(sorry it didn't photograph well) stamped with the Crafty Individuals Mushrooms.

I stamped some text and random leaves onto the background.


Just a quick word about something not related to AJJ - Jean has some fabulous new Crafty Individuals stamps, stencils and papers on The Craft Store at 10am and 2pm (British Time) today, if you miss it you can watch on 'Craftstore TV'

Here's a sneaky peek - stamps and paper - I think the stamps will certainly be featuring in my pages this month

Thanks for looking, Chris

I LOVE that you used fungi for your first entry this month, Chris. It is beautiful. It's hard to photograph metallic papers. You did a great job with this, dear.

With all the rain we are getting and due, there will be lots of funghi for you to find, I am sure! Great page.

There will be lots of fungi for sure, i'm sure it never rained as much in October when I was a child. Beautiful layered page Chris, I especially love how you've given the Fungi a glistening golden border.
Happy creative October Tracey x

Its a super mushroom image you used on your fantastic page for the new AJJ theme Chris, we do seem to have had more than our share of rain recently and I'm sure more folk may go and forage for mushrooms, I hope they know the the edible ones.

Chris, your page is so you! I know how much you love Paris and the layers and details are fabulous.

Loving your pictures too. Sadly, this is most likely the closest I will ever get to Paris. Share away - I love it all!

I love funghi and autumn is the perfect time to see some. This is a lovely journal page Chris and I love how you have included the music on your page.
Have a lovely weekend (despite the weather)
Hugs, Neet xx

A fabulous page, and I love fungi, have a lot of stamps, so thank you for the idea. Love the layers and I have been trying not to buy any more stamps, BUT the CI has tempted me for a while now. I used to love going on Jean’s workshops years ago.
Hugs Wendy.
