This page, created in my Coll-AH-ge Too altered book, was inspired by Valerie, this month's host at Art Journal Journey. The colors of Indian Summer were used to create this entry.
The background is a wet wipe I got at the grocery store, passed out so we can clean our cart handles or hands after handling food. They are much thinner than baby wipes and dry quickly. I colored it using bits of paint. The leaves were cut from the background left over from yesterday's page I created for Bleubeard.
Originally, I intended to write "Autumn leaves us breathless," but you can tell I didn't leave enough room. I had to come up with a shorter word, so thought a bit of humor was in order.
Thanks go to Valerie's wonderful theme at Art Journal Journey and it's where you'll find me today when I can sneak away from my company. Materials I used include a wet wipe, leaves from a background, a stem cut from two pieces of patterned paper, red paper, lavender paper, and a Micron pen. Thanks for visiting. I appreciate it.
Don't forget it's nearly time to be thinking about your Second on the 2nd. Any post, any genre, any subject matter you want to bring back for a second look is acceptable. Everyone is welcome to participate.
