Mixed Media Monday - The Colours of Autumn


Rich red, golds, gorgeous browns, yellows....it's no wonder that we are enthralled by the colours of Autumn. I used them in this round robin journal page even though the theme of the page really isn't at all seasonal. I found this vintage photo of a gentleman from my collection and created a life for him as a train conductor. I pictured all of the places that he visited during his time on trains. This is my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.

Very autumnal, lovely rich deep colour, and what a fine upstanding chap he is @I can just see him now blowing his whistle and keeping those trains running on time.
