Glorious October!

Well there goes September

and in comes October in a blaze of glory.  Looks a bit of a muddle here but I painted the background in the garden surrounded by beautiful sunshine and warm autumn colours. I used water colours and my water brush.  I scanned a page and printed out a couple of sheets for the squares.  They'll stand out more when written on. 
I was inspired by my previous page in my journal which I wrote about in my previous post.

Those pages look good to me and I also enjoyed your conker pages in previous post which I didn't comment on bei8ng on my "holiday" and only popping in for a quick peek! Today started off grey but the sun is out now so your pages look just the job having a mix of sunshine and autumnal colours.

Lovely, lively looking pages all ready to be filled. Fascinated by your waterbrush. Off to "Google" - what DID we do before "Google"???

Love the new pages - as others have said, they don't look messy to me - just lively and full of movement.
