Forever Autumn


Lots to Do has the theme of Nature this week.
I think Autumn is a lovely time of the year. I love to see the leaves changing colours, there are some many different hues
(Mind you, I just wish they would stay on the trees as I'm not so keen in having to get out the rake to scoop all the dropped leaves up from the lawns!)
This unmounted stamp is just a single tree, so I needed to stamp a couple of times in varying shades to try and get some appearance of depth, and I added the buttons in different colours again to try and reflect the shades of the leaves I can see at the moment in my garden.
It is unseasonly cold here at the moment, some snow flurries all over the country but hopefully this won't last.
Autumn should be clear blue skies and cold windy days - it shouldn't be grey skies and snow!
