This September altar piece is for Kimberly. I love to watch as the leaves start to change into their Fall colors, so I knew I wanted to use some of my velvet leaves in the piece with bright red berries added! I've had the gold metal bird for a long time, but I felt it was too shiny so I used brown, ocher and deep purple paints on it and then lightly rubbed some off until I was happy with it's more subdued look. The saying is from one of my stamps which I used Tiny Texts to spell out.
Flying has always been one of my dreams which is why birds and wings show up in so many of the things I make.
Wishing everyone a magnificent Fall! ---Beth
