This week it’s all about the absolutely wonderful Autumnal Equinox that’s being celebrated here in the Northern Hemisphere. I adore this time of year – the crisp air, the sharp, spicy smells, the harvest colors bursting with fiery charm, the dance of the leaves and then their crunchy piles. It’s pure bliss! Because of my utter joy and because of all of the activities that fall around this time, I didn’t have a lot of time to make my pages this week, but I did keep my theme consistent!
For the second page, I took a couple of previously pressed fall leaves and ever so gently drew on them – one is squirrel tracks and the other is a spiral (much like the path of a falling leaf). The leaves themselves are so fragile, yet they held up better than my previous attempts at leaf doodling on older leaves (the drier the leaf, the more fragile – it’s best to actually draw on them when they have been pressed for a day or so – not a year. At least that’s what I’ve found to be ideal!)
I hope everyone is having a wonderful equinox, no matter the season it’s marking!
