AutumnPage

I love Autumn with all its vibrant colours ... its fresh and clear air .... the leaves twirling through the air and silently tumbling down. I wanted to capture the spirit of the colours and time of change in my journal page
and started by crunching some old sewing pattern. I glued it to the gessoed journal page, added chalk and some gesso. The old bookpage I layered on top was swished through some orange and brown watercolour paints and stencilled with some distress inks. I printed/stamped some acorn leaves onto the page using acrylic paints  and real acorn leaves. I 'framed' the page by creating lines with a perforator and acrylic paint. Enjoy the lovely Autumn, Petra.
