Celebrate Fall!

This is my taped background page for my Soul Journal class.  I finished the background and my muse came to a screeching halt.  I had no clue what to do next on this page from four days.

At some point today, I realized it was time to celebrate the changing of the seasons from summer to fall.  I love it when leaves turn colors and you can hear the wind rustling through them. I love the cool night and having the windows open.   I love to see kids kicking piles of leaves as they walk down the road.  I love cool air.  I really, really love the cool air.

The background is covered with a combo of masking tape, silver tape and clear duct tape that I laid down in several different directions. I sprayed acrylic paints to tape.  Then I stamped leaves with permanent ink in fall colors.  I drew the dancing figure and cut it out of copy machine paper.  I painted her purple and the stenciled the whirls with black Archival ink.  She is adhered with gel medium.  The  words & leaves are Hero Arts stamps.
