Day 2 of Art Every Day Month on Leah's Creative Every Day blog.
I'd already coloured and fussy cut lots of shrooms for TIOT's Colours of Autumn challenge, so my page today is a celebration of Autumn and all its blessings.
I used Distress Inks for the background, including the stamping, adding touches of Warm Umber and Antique Gold paint.
I'm also happy to be able to join the challenge on Art Journal Journey Blog, which is 'Fruit or Veggies' and Mix it Up's Anything Goes challenge, with the option of Watercolour (I watercoloured the leaves with Distress Inks).
I'm also playing along with Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, which is Journalling, Country View Challenges' Hand Stamped, The Artistic Stamper Challenge's Mix it Up and with More Mixed Media's Orange Challenge (Toasted Marmalade and Rusty Hinge DIs).
Thanks for popping in
I'll be back soon

I love your autumnal colours, such richness in this journal page. I also have a ‘thing’ about shrooms so this fills my heart with such joy.

Stunning art, and truly beautiful colors of autumn, too. This is a genuine beauty. Not only is it gorgeous, it's a wonderful start to Rike's theme at Art Journal Journey, too.
