 Hello everyone 

the weekend was unusually warm in my little part of the world 
walks have been even more pleasurable collecting a variation 
of leaves and rose hip berry sprigs.

Sharing another page inspired by my finds and forage 

Sketchy leaf doodles on my art journal cover, leaf veins 
added with liner pen all painted with vibrant watercolour. 

The rose hip berries reminded me of a group of Ladybirds/Ladybugs 
sometimes known as a *Loveliness*... now how lovely is that. 

Wishing you all a wonderful week 

Stay safe & creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

Your little collection from your walk makes one amazing piece of art. These are wonderful leak sketches. The colors have lots of depth and those ladybugs are just wonderful. They all come in hibernate, don't they? This is another wonderful entry to your challenge this month at AJJ. Hugs-Erika

This is a wonderful page, I am thrilled again how you painted that and the may beetles! Nice too and the things we collected from October!
Have a happy week, hugs, Elke

Another fabulous page, love the leaves. I hope the ladybirds don't sneak inside to hibernate, as the heat in our bungalow would be too much. You can't be too far away form me, we live in-between Hereford and Worcester.
Hugs Wendy.
