The travelling sketchbooks are moving again! Yay! Many seemed to have stopped travelling for one reason or another last year and I haven't had one since doing my August spread. This week I received 2 books! My October and December.
The October book belongs to Andrea of Falling Ladies, and while I didn't do a falling lady, I did paint a dancing one!
The quote is from one of my favourite songs - Moondance by Van Morrison. (Double clicking increases the size of the image above.) The words read:
"Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush."
- Van Morrison
My page took inspiration from the song/quote (Hey! I think this means my pages also fit in with the theme of "Poem or Quote" this week for the Butterfly Effect!) and includes some of my October favourites such as pumpkins and squash, fallen leaves and a friendly witch! Some Octobers, my friend Ann holds a "Witches" party and invites all her female friends to attend - witches garb preferred but not required. It is always wonderful fun! While we haven't had any moondancing yet.... it may be an idea for next time!
Andrea also wanted us to create tags for out input and this is mine:
will be heading is now in the mail to Nicola in Australia very soon!
Hope everyone has a great Paint Party Friday! I missed last week - just couldn't get my act together to paint or visit. Looking forward to seeing everyone's efforts this week!
(P.S. I have started a new little blog about local Micro-Adventuring - Want to join me?)
