Inspired by Autumn colours

Hi, hope your day is going well...
I'm behind with everything at present - not helped by the fact we got a second Christmas tree this week and I am busy making Steampunk decorations for it...  mammoth job ha ha :(
I'm linking this today to Art Journal Journey where the theme this month is 'Inspired by Autumn colours' 

Check out the fabulous work on AJJ  for more on this theme.
As I was a bit short of time this is just a digital piece of art...
I used some digital elements and papers: 'Autumn Delight' by ML Designs,
'Tenacious' by Algera Designs and some clip art.

The Colours of Autumn

Isn't it frustrating when all you want to do is make art or do something crafty but other things get in the way and stop you...
so a big phew! for at last I have had time to create something....  linking today to Art Journal Journey where the theme for this month is 'Inspired by Autumn colours'.

A digital piece .......
Blended together photo of trees, some photos of a Gelli print* and scrap paper which had paint on
from brayer but looked interesting to use.
Added digital elements and papers I had already made a couple of years ago.
(The Dragonfly has a cinnamon stick for its body and think the leaves are Bay leaves) 
(* my first attempt at gelli plate printing was bit of a disaster,
next time I hope to do better and not be so nervous of ruining plate and brayer)

Close up of words

The fun thing with digital art is you can have the original
and just keep altering it and getting more from it.
So I altered the first piece to make it a bit more grungy
and I used the Gelli print on top layer and duplicated
it a couple of times and also altered the blend mode on one of the papers
 which also made it slightly darker too..

Thanks so much for stopping by
