Autumn Faerie




Ah.....Autumn.  Absolutely my favorite season. The rich colors , the late afternoon light, the sense of  nature at its peak soothe my soul and for some reason stimulate my creativity. A time of enjoying the harvest and beginning to look inward set the stage for daydreaming and fantasy. Spring and summer are all a bustle and busy with life; where Fall tends to slow down and release.  This summer has been crazy for me work wise and personally, and now and I just want to retreat into quieter times and reflection.  Autumn is the theme this week at The Three Muses challenge group and I had to play with this whimsical collage. Imagery from Dover books, Rosey Posey and  Tangie Baxter at Scrapbookgraphics, Holliewood and Finecrafted Designs at Deviant Art.

  3. She's a beauty Lori. I love the wings, the sunflowers and the colors of Autumn. Also, it's great that you added a nude (or partial nude that is) to this piece.

    I am very glad that Summer is over. It was far too hot and we have no air conditioning!
