My gord, what a palava. I dont know what was going on with Blogger recently but some posts were doubled or trippled and others were deleted. It just so happens that the post for today got deleted hence why this bad boy is late! Luckily though I had my photographs ready but not the links and text. But have a peek into the first few layouts in my autumnal journal!
My first page, a cut out from a country living magazine and some lovely Studio Calico wood veneer stars.
This... this was what I wasn't looking forward to explaining! I found this anthro magazine illustration via pinterest but if you clicked on the link from the UK you got redirected to the standard site. It took me FOREVER, ok 10 minutes tops, to find the illustration to nab and print out. I hope THIS LINK works without the redirect but I cannot be certain.
If you cant open the above link just save that image.
You can find that little vintage Autumnal Poem here via Flickr as a free download and printable
This is one of my favourite pages in my journal. Created using book pages, gold metallic docrafts paint.
using a little paint brush and some watery black acrylic paint I painted these letters. gesso underneath and the painted dots were created using the end of a glue stick!
A collection of wonderful chipboards from Sodalicious.pl arrived ^_^
My favourite fall and winter scented candle is warm gingerbread from east of india. I just love it. The smell always makes me think of autumn ^_^ and baked apple pie candles! That candle is sitting on top of a pile of Atlanta Bartlett Pale and Interesting Notecards (I bought mine on Pale and Interesting but they're a little cheaper on amazon) that I got for pen pal writing and decided they would be perfect for changing out the frames in my living room for the change of seasons.
This is actually my favourite layout in my journal so far but of course I was too stupid to take a full picture of the layout! Inspired by my post last week about Tara Andersons Autumnal journal and those journal prompts provided, I created my own colour palette from paint. I used a sewing pattern, cream paint and tattered angels glimmer mist on the background.
My most recent page that is still in progress!
I am definitely enjoying using alternative colour palettes this season for Autumn and using glimmer mist and metallic paint like it is going out of fashion! The tea pouring from the pot is an antique gold docrafts speciality paint and the boat image came from a Seasalt of Cornwall catalogue that arrived in the post. I haven't quite finished that layout. I have some journalling to include on the teapot page. The background for that page was from a Frankie magazine. (I just did a colour copy on my scanner).
