I'm once again joining Gill of Gibby Frogett Craftations who is hosting Art Journal Journey this month.
Gill's theme is Nature's Wonders.
I'm fascinated by leaves. They begin life as buds in spring, then turn into green beauties in summer. In autumn, leaves often put on a show for us as they sport their beauty across the countryside. Nature's wonders at their finest.
Trees begin from a single seed. They may take only a few years to reach maturity, or they could take decades, depending on their species. Once their life cycle has been reached, they die, only to fertilize the ground on which they once stood. I find these true wonders of nature.
Look at this adorable cuddly bear. Don't you just want to take something that looks that adorable home with you? Of course, we know looks are often deceiving in nature, because this adorable cuddly bear will turn on you in a heartbeat if it feels threatened or provoked.
Materials include a portion of a calendar page I actually pulled out of the recycle box, fabric leaves, and an image of a bear.
Since the calendar background was recycled, I'm also linking to
Try it on Tuesday whose theme for the next day or so is scraps and leftovers.
Thanks for joining me today with this mixed media entry I created in my Coll-AH-ge Two altered book.
