Walk with me..

 Hello creative friends, 

Get your boots on as today I invite you to 
walk with me along the canal side near my home 
as I share another page for my Guest Host theme 

Here's my hand drawn and painted boot, stamped Tree's with die cut 
and embossed leaves striding along the canal bank walking amongst 
crunchy, soggy and often slippery fallen leaves.

Shadows cast on the water make the canal look much wider than it is 
Without those embankment tree shadows the sky and earth would be seamless. 


Each UK season brings something very special but nothing like Autumn, 
nature presents us with glorious golden yellows, orange with hint's of 
ruby red as the many green's start to fade, the illusion of warmth 
as we take a closer step towards Winter.


Wishing you all a safe and happy weekend 

Creative hugs 
Tracey xx

A great journal page, Tracey! I love the idea of it and your perspective. Your wonderful boots are getting a beauty of a workout, taking you to the land’s most hidden treasures. I love those autumn colored die cut leaves you are walking through. I really do feel that I’m on that walk with you.

I am blown away by the boot Tracey. I look like a real boot that has been photographed. What a great idea. I love those die cut leaves you have used that the boot is crunching down as it walks through the woods. This is an amazing entry for AJJ. Thanks for sharing it. Happy end of the week Tracey. Hugs-Erika

oh I love your page, it's so beautiful with the sky and the trees and that amazing boot (is it a Doc Martin, it looks like one?) and those leaves just look like they're about to be crunched under foot. Elle xx

I've been here several times in the past two days and each time I get an error message from Blogger. I was able to publish on another blog, so maybe Blogger is going to let me do the same here.

Your boot is fabulous, but everyone has told you that already. I love the little ladybug that you added to that amazing boot, but I also like the background with the trees. What struck me as great, though is how you allowed the leaves you cut to wander off the ends of the journal page. This is a fantastic entry and really perfect for your theme at Art Journal Journey, dear Tracey.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

YAY!! Finally!
