Autumn Colours for #FolksyFriday

Hi all! Just popped by to let you know that I now have a shop on Folksy, too, where I`ll be selling some smaller original artworks, original artist linocut prints, and some limited edition giclée prints and cards.

Since yesterday was the first day of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, I posted my acrylic piece, with some hand embroidery detailing, "Autumn, The Four Seasons" to celebrate the start of my favourite season.

In this blog post, I`d like to share with you some of my favourite Autumn-inspired finds on Folksy.  As always folks, please remember that copyright belongs to the artists and crafters.  If you would like to use these images on social media, you must credit them back to their original author.  I`ve posted links to all the respective shops beneath each image so you can go straight to their Folksy shop.  Happy Autumn all!!


I just love the colours and the composition of this beautiful collograph print,  "Autumn hare" by Suzi Thompson Printmaker.

I`m a bit of a bookworm, (I confess more so before the advent of the digital age, but paper isn`t going anywhere soon, imho) and who could resist such a quaint bookmark? I love it! "Autumn Embroidered Landscape Bookmark" by Lynwoodcrafts.

"Tree Pendant in autumnal orange" by Tanith Rouse Jewellery is simply gorgeous! I absolutely love the colours!

 And this is one of four pieces I did, each measuring 20 x 50 cms on box canvas, called "The Four Seasons". Look closer, and you`ll see "Autumn" is holding a small hedgehog in her hands, complete with hand embroidered spikes. She`s available in my new Folksy shop, Judith Logan.

This is a beautifully crafted pendant, showcasing the amazing, graphic qualities of seedheads and pods that are so typical of the season. You can find this and more in Claire Gent`s Folksy shop.

And finally, Autumn just wouldn`t be Autumn without some rust coloured leaves. Why not have one all year round, in the form of this lovely "autumn leaf brooch" by Lotus Blossom?

or in the form of this beautiful, porcelain leaf decoration? Made by Pelin Hanley ceramics.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my autumnal selection. I really hope you enjoyed it. I had so much fun choosing what to post, I think I`ll be posting more for #FolksyFriday !! Have a great weekend folks. Enjoy the changing colours, stop to look at the glistening spiders`webs in the morning dew, breathe in the aroma of a brisk walk in the fresh air, and make some jam or a pie!

If you like a bit of poetry, make a coffee, sit back, and enjoy John Keat´s classic: #odetoautumn
