Just thought I'd share a page from my art journal. The background is strips of tissue paper that I painted over with blues and softened with gesso. I really wanted to play with leaves - well, not so much that I would go outside and rake them.....you know what I mean ;-). I stamped my leaves using distress inks on the stamp and spritzing with water just prior to stamping to get a watercolor-like effect. These are much prettier than what we have lingering on our trees. Fall has not been as colorful as usual this year - our night temperatures have not been as cold as they should be and so we get dull leaves I recently learned. Any that are left will soon be snow covered because we've got a rare October snowstorm headed our way tonight - so exciting!! And yes....I love winter weather, even in October!
