Can you believe it is already Wednesday?
I have so much to do at work this week my days are flying by.
As is this month.
So thought I would show you a journal page that I put up a few weeks ago but have revisited and made some finishing details on it.
Here's what I showed you awhile back.
Here's the original posting.

Needs something to give it some more depth, I thought.
So I started by adding more yellow and orange with a make-up sponge to really make it look like autumn.
And some brighter blue for the sky. But it needed some depth, so I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil. You can really see that below.
The sun- which is in a Postmodern Design stamp, that I cut out and colored and embossed the rays with gold embossing powder.

And the clouds needed some more white gesso to be white.
And as I added the yellow and orange to the trees, I took the bottom of the brush and carved in some branch lines into the wet paint.
What a difference from the top photo. I like it so much more now.
That's the beauty of a journal-you don't have to just do a page for a day. You can go back to a page as many times as it calls you and keep adding to it until you finish your page in a way that it makes you happy.
This page makes me happy right now.
I am linking this to this page:

Stay warm.
Stay in the sunshine.
Enjoy your day .

I like this alot. Very warm and inviting. It totally reminds me of a beautiful Indian Summer week we had here in Ohio in October. Thanks for the memory.
