Hi everyone. I hope your weekend is going well.
Although I couldn't get this page to lay flat, I still really like it. It definitely feels like a New Hampshire November.
I started by ripping up some deli paper that I used as a "drop cloth" for some painting I did on another journal page. I tore up the deli paper and glued down some bits on this page. You might remember back in my T Day post how I had mentioned cleaning out some craft supply bins. I had a lot of stickers in one bin, some of them going way back to my scrapbooking days in the 1990's. Most of those stickers went into a mailing box. One of these days I'll list them on either eBay or Etsy so maybe (if they sell) they'll go to someone who will actually use them. (Or if you know anyone who wants some stickers just for the cost of shipping I'll be glad to send them out.) Before I boxed them up I pulled out a few that I wanted to keep. The leaves on this journal page were on a sheet that was half used. I decided not only to keep them but to use them on my page.
I added this die cut deer. After that I used an older Penny Black stamp several times to create this base of dried grasses. I then used a piece of washi tape to even off the bottom. I also cut out part of the words from an Impression Obsession autumn themed stamped quote.
I wet the foam part of an ink sponge and ponced some light blue stamping ink to create the sky. Finally, I finished my page by stamping the dream word 3 times.
I'll finish my post with a few late autumn views from a walk I took last week at the Urban Forestry Center in Portsmouth (NH).
Here's an old family graveyard. Usually here in New England they are surrounded by stone walls, but since this is a public space, there is a more sturdy fence.
The shadows on the bottom right were really catching my eye.
A little bit of color is really noticeable on the bare branches.
And I kept looking up.
And when I looked down I noticed this.
Someone is building something. It reminds me of the forts we used to build when we were kids.
At this spot the water looked so bright blue compared to the neutrals of the tree.
I am also joining Gillena's Sunday Smiles .
Enjoy whatever is left to your weekend and/or have a great start to the new week.
