October


It's October! Here in the Northeast today we are dealing with strong winds and the promise of heavy rain as a tropical storm moves through. It feels like the winds of the changing season are here and the promise of cool, bright days is just ahead. It's a favorite time of mine--the changing of the seasons. You can actually taste the difference in the air.

Here is another tribute to October, for both the 4 x 4 Friday and Art Creations Challenges this week. The Mucha illustration was provided from ACF; the background began with a texture piece from Untamed Reflections, embellished with brushes. Moths from the Graphics Fairy for the wings , and also in the background; the pumpkin and crow are also from GF.

  3. Stunning. I keep saying, I wish I knew how to do this...you are so clever!

    We are having that change in the seasons too. It's just getting that touch wintry..after our long dry summer, here in the south of England, it is a welcome change for me.
