Words 2 Craft By #46

The current challenge over at Words 2 Craft By uses the following quote for inspiration this month:

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 

I am spending more time art journaling these days. When I read this quote I knew it had to be go in my art journal. Jumping into art journaling is a big leap. You have to accept mess, inking fingers, glue all over the place and every drawer in your craft room open! If you scrap book and/or make cards you already have ample supplies. So here is my mess. I am getting better but not as good as what I see on you tube or on Pinterest. But this is my attempt and I feel naked sharing it with all of you.

I used acrylic paints for the background (3 for a dollar at AC Moore), the pumpkin and script is a napkin (from the dollar store). The leaves I stamped on different colored cardstock and cut out. I don’t know where I got the jeweled leaves but they were in my embellishment supply. I use Sharpies for my outlining and lettering, both fine and broad tip.

I did attempt to share the following page in last months challenge but I was too late.

Thanks for stopping by.
