After an inital cold snap in early September, we have had unseasonably warm temperatures.
So warm that I could sit outside for the whole afternoon and draw. It was a beautiful day!
I drew some butterflies in pencil, and then got brave and drew some in pen. Just after that I visited Stephanie's blog, and saw her lovely little book (with no pages) and felt the urge to make one.
And this is what came about. - Inside view
And outside view.
And the next day, I had the urge to make another. This one decorated with a little original collage.
With leaves and bits of paper on the outiside.
Here they are wrapped up with a piece of fabric that is attached to the covers.
As I was out for a walk on that beautiful September day, I stopped and collected a few leaves that had blackened sections from the earlier frosty nights. I added some to the cover of the butterfly book, and the words say.... seasons change
