A layout featuring the beauty of late autumn seed heads from my garden. This LO is a companion piece to" Thankful for Autumn's Golden Glow", but Thanksgiving preparations got in the way of me finishing it in time to post at that time! Whereas in Thankful I made the background paper with molding paste and bronze/gold powders, this background paper uses tons of glimmer mists and some gesso. Also included here are fine strips of sheet copper, cut and folded.
The piece of poetry on this page is the last stanza of a poem entitled "St Luke's Summer", by Norman Nicholson, and it reads:
"The soul too has its brown October days-
The fancy run to seed and dry as stone,
Rags and wisps of words blown through the mind,
And yet, while dead leaves clog the eyes,
Never predicted poetry is sown."
