Cool Fall Weather - an Art Journal Page

Busy day today. I actually made it to Aqua Fit and then friend Jane and I went to the Pampered Stamper's for coffee and a card. Jackie really does pamper her guests. She is a Stampin' Up representative and her classes are fun. (https://www.facebook.com/ThePamperedStamper)

After the class was over and I got home Joe decided we should run some errands, have lunch at the mall (Chinese) and then get groceries. Some days we win when we shop, other days we lose. Today was a losing day. The grocery store we normally shop at did not have any vegetarian meatballs again, and it doesn't look like they are going to carry them any more. We bought our usual selection of fruit and paid $2.99 for 1/2 pint of raspberries. On the way home he decided we should stop at the garden centre on the way past to get the dirt we need to cover the roses. The dirt was on sale for $2.50 a bag but it was just top soil, not black earth but he talked me into getting it anyway - so we got 8 bags. Then he decided we should drive up to Sobeys to see if they had vegetarian meatballs - they didn't, but they had raspberries for $1.50 1/2 pint and black earth for $2.00 a bag! Yup, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose!

This week's challenge at Stamping Bella was a "do what ever you want" page. Well, it's fall in Ontario so lots of fall colours, falling leaves and cool wind blowing. So, that's my page's inspiration.

Lots of fall colours sprayed on, rubbed on, stenciled and splattered on. I hand cut the leaves and coloured them and ran some of the corners around a chop stick to curl them. Now the funny thing is the card we made today at Jackie's (to be posted tomorrow if I remember) also had leaves on it but she had the die to die cut them and a totally different way to make them. I liked her way much better then mine so that's the way I'll make them from now on. I cut more then I needed for this page so I can experiment....which is the most fun of all!
