Man of Numbers

Here's another page with the colors of fall I am linking to Art Journal Journey. This month's hostess is Susi. 
This page started as a Gelli print of the leaves on a sheet of map paper. Then I added all the number items-cloth tape, part of piece from a sheet of die cut letters and numbers, some stamped numbers, the round number cut out from a playing card, some pattern pieces with numbers on them, and also the number paper tape. (I might have gone a little overboard with numbers I guess!)  I stamped the man and colored him in (the stamp is from Stampington/Claudine Hellmuth) . I also added a couple of strips of paper-one which I wrote on- and also a couple of TH stickers.
I'm also posting this to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Kristen and Eva for hosting.
Stop by both Paint Party Friday and Art Journal Journey to check out some great paintings, art journaling and other creative endeavors.
And keeping with the colors of autumn theme as is in my journal page, I went for a walk with a friend last weekend and snapped a few photos.
This photo does the colors no justice. The blueberry bushes are that deep burgundy wine color and the grass was almost but not quite white. This color scheme is certainly going to be an inspiration for some art.
This is what November looks like here in New Hampshire.
And driving home later in the afternoon the sunset was pretty too. This is another photo that doesn't do the view justice.  The mountains in the background don't look anything more than a bumpy horizon here, but with the full panoramic view they are quite pretty.
That's all I've got to say today.
Thanks for stopping by and hope its a good day in your part of the world!

One of the first stamps I ever bought was this man in a house. It reminded me of trig and Greek letters. I loaned it to a friend and no longer have it. You did a great job honoring the man of numbers.

Wow, your part of the country is getting barren, isn't it? It's still beautiful, though.

This is really good. I like your mysterious man (is he an accountant? haha!) and all the numbers. Everything you've added here makes such a complex and unusual page.

Great page, Erika! I've never tried to use other paper than blank with Gelli printing. What a great idea to print on map paper!
