Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
November is here and the temperature has certainly dropped, brrrr!

The leaves are just beautiful at the moment, 
I collected some beautiful leaves from our Acer tree in our garden....
and I wanted to incorporate them in some journal pages  
I used lots of layers of gesso, texture paste and grit paste
through a variety of Tim Holtz stencils
(THS 061,070,068)
I used distress paints ( wild honey, walnut stain) along with distress crayons to add layers of colours to match the leaves.
I also used some rust pastes by finnabair to colour the background, star and arrow.
I added some rusty wire to frame the photo, words and the star 
The text stamp is Tim holtz (Ledger script) 
I also used the Patchwork pieces set,I stamped using coffee archival ink.
Ive left some areas blank as I may journal some thoughts onto it later...
I hope you like.... feel free to leave a comment, i appreciate each and every one xx

Have a lovely weekend
