AUTUMN LEAF PRINTING & COLLAGE POSTCARDS

AUTUMN LEAF PRINTING WITH PAPER COLLAGE LEAVES – These postcards were such fun to create with quotes about the season of autumn.  I used local leaves from the neighborhood & printed with rubber stamp ink, adding watercolor painting to a few of the leaves, too.  Origami and gelli printed papers cut out into leaf shapes added the perfect touch to collage fallen autumn leaves. 

LILY FLOWERS LIKE BIRTHDAY CAKE DECORATIONS

Lily flowers in a pond float like pretty colored birthday cake flowers.

Magical blooms of nature from a water plant with its roots bound deep in mud.

The leaf green lily pads float becoming perches for frogs & toads who sing in the night.

In the sunlit water morning koi fish jewels flash deep & then surface for a look at the day.

Dragonflies zoom by, leaving iridescent color trails sparkling in my mind’s eye.

This is joy.  Not flash in the pan happiness, but deep-seated, lasting joy. 

Of being alive in this life, of knowing that I am part & parcel of it all. 

The glittering magic, the deep swimming sea, the song of life. 

The water flowers bloom with the magic of a thousand years of the continuation of life. 

The earth is filled with joy.

Joy. Joy. Joy.  Happy Birthday to me.  I hear the singing of the earth.
