Warm colors of Autumn

Today I am sharing a journal page I made using my Silks Acrylics by ColourArte

 My background is covered with vintage stamps from all over the US that I found at a garage sale. The beautiful lady image is a Maxfield Parrish cut from one of my old calendars. 
Also used are Micro beads and die cut leaves from the Thinlits Leaves Set by Tim Holtz.

My verbiage is an excerpt from a quote by the
designer,William Morris
Simplicity of life
even the barest is not
a misery,but the very
foundation of refinement
                                William Morris
Silks colors used:
Pink Anthurium
Pretty Peridot
Teal Zircon
Ginger Peach
Sky Blue
Radiant Rain Mists used:
Apple Blossom

Ah, the wonderful Maxfield Parrish! There is something unique about the way he uses colour. This image goes just perfectly with your lovely rich and warm journal spread and the William Morris quote. I visited WM's childhood home recently, which is now a lovely gallery. If you are ever in the UK it's well worth a visit! xxx :)

HI Jackie...especially like the use of the stamps in your background. Need to ask you more about the silk acrylics as I haven't heard of them. The colors in this piece practically burst off the page. Love them! Cheers-Darlene
