Fall is in the Air Prompt

Distressed ink, pounded leaves, fallen leaves, Pitt Pen, Stamps

Water Colour, Sakura Black Pen

It's Prompt time again over at A Year in the Life of an Art Journal!  This weeks prompt, Fall is in the Air.  Now, I like fall, truly I do, as the three journal pages I have regarding fall can attest to.  Two of which were done weeks before the prompt was posted.  To see my first post regarding fall click here: Falling into the Bucket.  Fall, however much I like it though, is also the gateway to the hell that is winter for me.   In winter, days are forever long, the sun is weaker, it's oh so cold, and depression has a tendency to rear it's ugly head more fiercely than in the summer months.  This prompt was great reminder that although winter is just around the corner, there are so many reasons to enjoy the moment that is granted to me today.. 
  • Tumultuous Winds
  • blazing leaves
  • crisp blue skies
  • the smell of decaying leaves
  • grey cozy days
  • feather down quilts
  • warm fuzzy sweaters
  • hot apple cider
  • pumpkin pie
  • ghostly hauntings
  • brisk autumn days
  • crackling wood fires
  • crunchy fresh apples
Do we share any common likes in fall?  Don't be shy, let me know.  It's a big world out there, and it's nice to know we are not alone.

Stay safe and Love Yourself,

Epitome of Autumn in my Backyard


  1. LOVE your leaf art! At first glance, I thought the second one was my favorite, but the more I look at the two, the more I find it hard to pick my fave!
    Regarding fall, I'll be honest, this is the only time of year I miss living up North. I always loved the cooling off, the sweaters, rosy cheeks, the snuggling up at night, etc. Come winter though, I was over it-lol!!

  2. I love both of them, but MAN!! I really love the one with the leaf you made out of words. :)

  3. I am with rachel on the hand written leaf!!! Gorgeous works!!

  4. I love both! And you inspired me to pick up my Sakura pens again. I love fall (but confess I love winter too, adding that I live in Austin, TX and winter is pretty much a breeze - literally - here. We've had snow and very cold days, but just a few here and there. I love the in-between feeling of Autumn and also think the layering effect you have on the first piece really nails that!
