Fall Inspiration

Hello Friday and I hope my friends are all staying warm and safe. The weather is bad... cold and windy and yesterday it had been raining so bad here. But I feel so good that this week my son had school only for two days-:)
Anyways below is my finished side of the handmade Fall journal. On the other side I have two more sheets to finish. I had so much fun doing this. They are all watercolor sketches based on Autumn.  

 Somehow I am unable to rotate the page-:(

 My Art Journal page for this week: After a long gap, I took my acrylics again. This page is so rich in layers; book pages, gesso, plaster cloth... I had a tough time finishing it. Whenever I'm creating, I stop when my instinct says so, when my mind says that yes! it is done.  

  (Still couldn't keep the photos straight)
In the beginning I came up with this. I saw the image of an angel on my page but then again I didn't feel happy with it. So I played more and then again autumn played as my source of inspiration-:) I loved the trees and just stopped there.
The quote was quite fitting for all the confusion that I had while doing this page. It is always good to keep things simple right? Sometimes the simplest answer or pattern will be there in front of us but still we will be searching and putting ourselves in a complicated position-:)

Linking my post to the awesome team at PPF, and Art Journal Everyday
