Last Days of Summer

Hi there and welcome to another crafty Boots Challenge
This time its the turn of the talented Freya who chose Last Days of Summer. 

This is my interpretation.
Its a double spread in my creative journal.
The background is created using Amsterdam acrylic paints.

After writing all over a piece of paper i then drew a trees shape and some apples and some flowers before cutting them out and sticking them onto the page.

I added stems straight onto the page.

I coloured the flowers, trees, leaves and apples with Dylusions inks and added a few stamps from the Dylusions range.

The circles were created from acrylic paint on the bottom of my Dylusions sprays.

The tree trunk was done straight onto the page using the inks.

The writing I did myself in Dyan's style.

Thank you for stopping by today and good luck if you enter the challenge. 


  1. Another wonderful journal page, I love your scorching hot colours and those cheeky grubs after the mouthwateringly red apples.

  3. Gorgeous colours for the background and each time I look I see something new. I love those flowers and the tree and then I spotted those caterpillars - too cute x
