Fall Greetings!

Special thanks to Diana, who created
the background for this piece: layers of
assorted papers, including music, scrapbook,
and text from a book.  I completed the
piece with images that are
color copies of watercolors I did several
years ago, based on vintage Halloween.
Added some off-white acrylic paint over
the papers, stamped swirls, then adhered
images cut from cardstock copies. 
Text written in marker. Black inked
the edges, and then decided to add
dark brown chalk pastel for a
darker frame.

 Also sharing a couple of pages
from my hardback art journal that
were created quickly, using images
that I had collected, but didn't
really fit into any of my recent
work.  Sometimes it's good to
just do something to get going.
The grid format created by the
tags really makes it less complicated
to finish the page...

I really like the juxtaposition of
unrelated images, but often
find it difficult to pull off,
so I tried not to over think
the process this time...
Inspired by a Michelle Ward
GPP Street Team challenge.


  1. Oh, great idea on using up images that don't fit. The pages are lovely.

  2. Oh my gosh... I love, LOVE, LOVE that jack-o-lantern face!!! You craked me up!

  3. Michelle rocks! And this mix is nice. I really like your Halloween piece, too.

  4. I mean, both mixes are nice, but I like the bottom one better of the two.
    I think because I"m working on a grid sketchbook right now, so I'm drawn to the graphic.

  5. This is gorgeous, Dianne. Sorry I'm so late getting here, but I finally took time to sit and see what I had missed in blogland. Your jack-o-lantern face is adorable, as is all your art.


I really appreciate your comments. Leave me a note and Thanks for visiting!
