Autumnal Face

No spring, nor summer beauty
has such grace
as I have seen in one
Fall is here!
And, now as it was
when I was a child, if I
find a little cluster of crunchy
fall leaves in my walking path,
my heart beats a little
faster, I pick up the walking pace
and stomp my feet on
the cluster of leaves just
to hear that sound.

Scrapki Wyzwaniowo has a wonderful fall challenge us us! Check their blog out, and you will
find an abundance of rich, colorful, and innovative art projects to stir your mojo and get to
creating something for the season.

The small leaves were created with a
Sizziz die-cut, and a leaf punch, with lots
of applications of shimmering H2O's.

I took this photo of my 10 year-old niece
during a fall day a number of years ago.  She
is my autumnal face. :)


Thanks for stopping by.
