Art Journal - Fall

Evening everyone. With the  cool weather upon us, I was inspired to do a fall journal page.  Our fall has been as good as our summer was.  Cool and wet.  Here's hoping winter isn't bad. 
My background is one of my favorites to do.  Using distress inks and blending them on the page.  My leaves were stamped on decorative paper and cut out.  I stamped one tree directly onto the page and placed a pile of leaves under it, scattering the remainder over the page. 
 stay strong  - it seems that cancer and disease has hit my family hard lately.  trying to keep thoughts positive and cherish everyday.

Happy Thanksgiving

Good evening everyone, and a happy Thanksgiving to you all.  What a great meal.  I still feel so stuffed. Today was a great day.  The whole family was home.  Who could ask for anything more.  With the cold weather sneaking up on us we have spent the weekend getting the yard put away for winter.  My daughter discovered the power washer, making her job of washing out all the flower pots much more enjoyable. 
Not much card making has been going on. That will change soon.  We have started construction on my area.  Insulation is up, and drywall is starting to go up.  The basement is getting cold, and the stove can't be turned on until my stuff is moved from in front of it.

As you can see I have not been idle.  A friend of ours just had a baby girl, and I had to make some little treasures for her.  I am a knitter, not a crocheter, so this took me a little longer to do. There was a lot of ripping out till I got it right. I think the little mermaid tail is my favorite.

happy crafting
