Beautiful Nature and Recent Artwork

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! We have definitely enjoyed time away from school to spend with our family and friends. It has been a busy, but good week. 

I've also been enjoying the cooler air. It's my favorite time a year, a few months that are a break from the extreme heat and humidity of summer. I've enjoyed some great runs with some beautiful fall scenery. A couple weeks ago, I took my iPhone on a run one late afternoon. I stopped many times along the way to snap a few photos. The color of the fall leaves was absolutely gorgeous. 


This photo is my absolute favorite! I love the angle, plus this tree is just beautiful!

Another view of that same tree. Check out the gorgeous blue sky!


A close up photo of a different tree. Love the red/orange shade of these leaves. 


A few leaves changing over to yellow...

The path in this area takes you around a nice pond. There are great views, plus some wildlife: birds and turtles!


Just in the last couple weeks, these views have changed completely, from vibrant hues to all browns. There are few leaves left upon trees and many are scattered about on the ground. It's a different type of beautiful. I am happy that we have a short bit of fall before everything changes over. It seems like the fall season gets shorter every year. 

Besides enjoying the colors of nature, I've been playing around with colors in the art space. I have several projects to share soon! One that I just recently finished is a mini card for my parents. It's a smaller version of something I created a few months ago using a lesson in Tamara Laporte's book, Create Your Life Book

Instead of putting it all together from the original art, I made copies so I could make each one unique. 


Color copies on cardstock.

Close up of the embossing on the roof of the little house. It really sparkles in the light!


Inside the house there's a little pocket for cards. In this design, I've include some scripture cards that I found online.  

I'm hoping to make different designs in the future and print more cards to make soon! I have several other projects that are close to finished and I am looking forward to sharing them in the coming weeks. 

Hope everyone has a blessed week! I'm looking forward to checking out what each of you have been up to lately!

Take care and HAPPY PAINT PARTY FRIDAY!

P.S. I am currently working on changing the look of my blog. It started as an accident, lol, but I like some of the new aspects versus the classic blogger look. Stay tuned as I work on it over the next week. I hope to have the final look later this week. :)
