Autumn ends or not?

 If you remember just a couple of posts ago I was showing you the beautiful Autumn colours in the local park? Well, this is what I got up to this morning!! SNOW yes, SNOW!!
Top is the view from my bedroom window and below the one from my kitchen window!

 So, while WINTER seems to have arrived outside I am still in AUTUMN mode inside! 

 This is my latest journal page in my A5 Moleskine journal.

 Can you see where some of the bats towards the top of the swirl seem to be paler? Well.........

 ......they are! This was one of those serendipity moments.......I stamped the bats and the ink on the stamp removed some of the colour already on the page revealing the book page underneath......I really liked the effect.
I am going to enter this for the ALTER IT! challenge this month where the theme is
"TO SPOOK OR NOT TO SPOOK"......although it's not an altered "thing", I suppose it is an altered page in that it was plain and now it's not!! Anyway I hope it counts, if not, never mind!!

You are so, so talented. I enjoy seeing all of your pages in your journals. You take creativity to a new level. On another note, you poor thing. Snow already.
