Autumn Glimpses

IMG_2051

The garden gave up a few morsels before frost. It’s sad to think it is done, but nice to have a break from figuring out what to do with never ending squash. I found the mushrooms growing by a straw bale. I didn’t know what they were so I got out my trusty mushroom field guide and tried to find them. Making a spore print is a crucial part of the identification. They had white spores, but I couldn’t figure out what they were, so I threw them out. They were very photogenic though. :-)

The sunrise is an never ending source of inspiration to me. Now that the sun is coming up later, I get to experience it more.

They early morning mists draped all of the spider webs with strings of pearls. It seemed as if every tree and blade of grass was decorated. It’s kind of scary though to think of how many spiders there are out there making all of those webs.

I couldn’t resist a little photo manipulation with the webs and some tree photos superimposed on each other. It reminds me of strings of party lights on an autumn evening.

My early morning walk turned into a collecting stroll. There is always something to pick up and admire if you only have eyes to see.

Morning Walk Inspiration

IMG_1987For the past week or so we have had gorgeous weather here in Middle Tennessee. Low humidity and cooler temps have made it feel like fall. I decided to take a little walk down our road instead of my usual workout routine in the house. My fast walk soon turned into stopping and gathering the interesting little presents that the nature around me had left in my path.

IMG_1990Poke berries are such a beautiful shade of dark purple, contrasted against the bright magenta stems and green leaves. The immature berries are a cool chartreuse. IMG_1991When crushed, the berries yield the most deep, magenta pigment. I couldn’t resist mashing them and adding a few drops of water to extend it to make some paint.IMG_1993I had a jar full of black walnut hulls that I had been soaking since last fall in my pantry so I combined the two to make this pattern in my journal. It will become the background for some future creation, either collage or a photo background.

IMG_1989If you are feeling uninspired, just find a nice park or country road, or even your own backyard and see what treasures you can find to spark that flow of ideas. See where it takes you!

More Patina

I’m still finding uses for my random relics that I bought from the interesting fellow who metal detects. Two birds on a fountain, riveted to a piece of copper with a green patina. The stones are malachite and carnelian and the brown beads are some of my crusty lampworked creations.

I handmade some of these clay beads and combined them with a large amazonite focal pendant and wood and bone beads. The clasp is a fired clay button that I made also. I’m thinking that these have a fall-ish feel to them and would lend a touch of nature to someone’s attire.
