Ciao Baby

 Another journal page today that I am linking to Art Journal Journey. This month's theme is architecture, and the hostess is Sheila.  I know the month is winding down but if you haven't checked out the art over there you really should.
 I added this dapper gentleman and this TH Rome stamp buildings strip. I also added the TH movie ticket image and film  stamped images from one of his other set of stamps. I had this little piece of  actual film in my stash along with the orange slide cover. I thought it framed Mr. Dapper's face so nicely.
The background could have been a disaster, as I tried to clean a stencil over a Gelli printed page. but it ended up working out OK for me.
I also had these little dark blue plastic circles from something or another, and I added them since there are some little dots in the background underneath the black arches.
The leaves are really starting to fall around here.This is the farm house I walked down to on my walks. Usually you can only barely see a bit of the house.
Here's the same view from a slightly different angle just 3 weeks ago.
Well it is almost November! Guess nature is doing what it is suppose to be doing.
Have a great day!
And thanks for stopping by my blog.

Another great entry for architecture. Framing the face was the perfect move. xox

What a complex background. My eye kept finding new and interesting images to land on. And of course, I loved the orange slide mount. It fit well with the colors and the mood.

Really enjoyed the photos, too. Yes, I suspect your beautiful trees are now starting to look like mine do each November. Of course, mine skip the beautiful stage, unlike yours!

A really interesting and unusual piece, love the busy look and the gentleman standing in front. Great work, Erika.

Rich and inviting piece you created Erika.
Ciao Bella is such a fun phrase too...rolls off the tongue ;-)
Lovely to see autumn in your neck of the woods too.
