I love summer (I wish we had one this year), but the season bursting of opportunities is autumn. It is the season of PLENTY! Plenty of colours, plenty of fruit, plenty of all kinds of weather. I love it. It is bitter-sweet and if I could I would write poems about it. Here is a short one: AUTUMN – a one word poem.
The idea for this Art Journal page was born as I wanted to do a painting for some challenges. One about colours, one about trees and one about creatures. I think this page meets all requirements.
I started with a loose collage and acrylic background and tried to find my tree on the page. I applied more acrylics for the tree, gave her a „nose“ of an old book page clip. Then stamped leaves on decorated paper in black, brown and red using Rubber Dance stamp from the sheet #NP1-M: I Love Leaves. I glued them on my painting and added some coloured pencil to add more interest.
I find a tree needs birds, so I stamped that wonderful nest and bird trio from the brandnew sheet #B2-L: Vintage Birds and coloured the eggs with a light blue pencil. I know that birds lay there eggs in spring, but hey, I am an artist and just got some Australian birds visiting 🙂
