Shades of Autumn

I'm sharing another art journal page today inspired by the definite shift towards autumn in my part of the world. 
 I really love the colours that autumn brings in the changing leaves, the low sun (when it appears) and the rich colours of the sunset.  I don't like the change in temperature, loss of flowers and darker mornings and evenings.  I'm not a winter person at all, much preferring the heat of summer, so that's what my journal page is about today.
I started with a chevron-type stencil and sprayed most of the page with Tattered Angels' Glimmer Mist in Sugar Maple, then stamped the leaves using DI Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge.
I used Tim Holtz Circus Alphabet for the beginning of the text ribbons and found this poem on the internet:
...  I see the turning of a leaf
dancing in an autumn sun,
and brilliant shades of crimson
glowing when a day is done ...
Hazelmarie 'Mattie' Elliot, 'A Breath of Heaven'
