Give It a Swirl

I remember one of my favorite art "lessons" as a child was using crayon shavings and bright fall leaves to make a waxed paper picture.  We did these neat leaf paintings, too!  So simple, so fun, so "no high-tech."  While I get rather frantic if there is ever a wreck on the Internet highway, there is much to be said for such dabbling.  These are easy ways to create quick, fun, and inexpensive fall artwork for a cottage or cabin.  Both are suitable for framing, or hanging up as clothesline art!  What about covering a journal that will capture your autumn thoughts and doings?  YES! Are you feeling these wonderful, cool mornings of September like I am?  They seem to bring the muse alive as the leaves are changing and twirling to the earth.  (Photos from Pinterest)
