crisp in the fall…

the music lady I put together awhile ago waited patiently in one of my art journals until I figured out what was next for her (she was from a catalog and I gave her the music dress)…

I am joining Valerie’s Art Journal Journey INDIAN SUMMER-GOLDEN OCTOBER-AUTUMN challenge…

purple paint and yellow glaze along with spiderweb washi tape helped bring my pages to life…magpies-nest-patty-szymkowicz-crisp-in-the-fall-left-page

the F. Scott Fitzgerald quote that I saw in a magazine appealed to me so I printed the words with our computer…magpies-nest-patty-szymkowicz-crisp-in-the-fall-journal-pages

the border on the bottom of the left page along with the leaves were cut from assorted junk mail…magpies-nest-patty-szymkowicz-crisp-in-the-fall-journal-pages-oct-2016

one of Seth Apter’s rubber stamps (on the right) along with some extra brushes of yellow glaze gave a nice finishing touch to my pages…

  9. Wonderful Patty! The lovey musical lady and the purple and gold gives this page a very mystical look. I especially like the way you have used the cobwebs and gold leaves to accent her dress and hair :-). Lovely quote too, which I haven’t heard before – thanks for sharing. Magical as always! Wishing you a happy start to the week! J 🙂

  19. This is just so special and how you combine these bits and pieces and stamping and ladies from catalogues is so very skilful and magical.
    That is a great quote, and quite true, I think; Autumn is for starting or restarting fresh pursuits.

  21. Beautiful Patty – I have been absent due to hurricane Matthew but all is well now. But my poor daughter in North Carolina still does not have power and she live more towards the center of the state. They have had way too much rain.

  23. Not sure how I missed this entry, but it is a beauty. The lady is a bit spooky with the spider web for a waistline, but I like it. It’s a great AJJ entry. Even the colors are indicative of autumn.

    I have finally used all my stars tissue. Glad to see you still have some left.
