Half Past Autumn, December’s mini kit

By on 10-26-2011 in Original photos

Half Past Autumn … I love this way of describing the season change between autumn to winter. It is from a poem by Gordon Parks “But I do feel a little teeny right now that I’m just about ready to start, and winter is entering. Half past autumn has arrived.” This kit was created for The Digital Scrapbooking Studio’s December colour challenge with ADB Designs. I have also done a page using ADB Designs pretty little kit and another created with my kit. These photos are from a beautiful autumn day deep in the Ottawa valley.

Autumn Whispers

By on 10-26-2011 in Original photos

October’s colour challenge at the Digital Scrapbooking Studio brought us a beautiful colour palette to play with. Autumn colours with a muted look to them which reminded me of many days just before Halloween when it is frosty but still loaded with wonderful warm hues and breezy whispers of the leaves in the trees. I added a little mask and two owls to bring in the Halloween season.

Doodles, Circles and Whatnots

These little 4×4 Art cards, done for the Art For The Creative Mind Yahoo group, were so much fun to do. The background is metallic copper paint with a border of metallic blue paint and a matching alcohol ink. The copper is for the changing trees and the blue ink is for the bright blue skies surrounding the trees that appears in the Autumn. Both cards were drawn freehand so are a bit different. Once has something extra … can you spot it?

Dancing my Song, if I had my dream

By on 10-26-2011 in Original photos

October’s journal page at The Art For the Creative Mind Yahoo group was all about following your dream. Dancing to my own music, to my own song has always been my dream. I try to do that at least a little bit each and every day. This journal page is my inner child and I added my grey hair. Although dancing these days is not as easy as it was when I was younger, it is in my dreams.

Wanda and her cat Twinkles, a Hallowe’en paper doll

By on 10-26-2011 in Original photos

Wanda wants to go trick or treating this year for Hallowe’en. She has her witches costume all ready and Twinkles her cat is all dressed up too. Won’t you take her trick or treating with you this year? Finish her story. What will she gather when she is out? Which friends will she meet? What will happen if a goblin asks for a trick in exchange for a treat?
