I'm sighing here, my heart is so happy it's Autumn. My favorite season brings such bounty to my senses. The smell of a wood fire, the sound of leaves crunching under my feet, the chill in the air mornings now, the taste of "Pink Lady" apples and the chanterelles are at our Farmers Market, and the sight of my maples putting on their Autumn 'coats'. And if we are lucky, it will be nice until the second week of November.
The 365 Card Blog Super Sketchy Sunday was perfect for a card to celebrate the season. I first decided to use this wonderful Elizabeth Lawrence (Impression Obsessions) quote about the leaves turning. The tree (Paper Inspirations) was inked with Nick Bantock's Sap Moss Green and embossed with clear powder. I used many different chalk inks to color the falling leaves. Now my favorite way to watch the leaves turn is from a lawn chair very much like this one from Stampa Barbara. It was inked with the same NB green. I cut it out, popped on dimensionals and placed a few leaves under the chair...just like on my patio right now!
So if you have a moment, I'd love to hear what your Autumn traditions are...hayrides, cider pressings, long walks crunching the leaves in your neighborhood???? Happy Fall, all.
