MMM – Autumn Colours

It’s been a long time since I’ve participated in any Mixed Media Monday challenges, but I’m back into them! This week’s theme is Autumn Colours.

Autumn

Autumn

These are two pages for a Fat Book swap on Seasons earlier in the year. I was trying to represent the change in colours and the wind swirling the leaves around. I’ve added the words of a childhood song:

Did you hear the wind today,
Blow the autumn leaves away?
From the trees they tumble down,
Some are red and some are brown.
Dancing up and down the street,
Dancing ’round my little feet.
Did you hear the wind today,
Blow the leaves away?

I always thought this was a strange song, as here in Melbourne, our autumns are usually the least windy of the seasons.

The backgrounds are painted with acrylic paint. Stamp swirls by Autumn Leaves (how appropriate!) in Staz-on Black and Saddle Brown. Pressed leaves added. Sealed with varnish.

It’s good to be back on the blog challenge trail!
