I am really enjoying the Fall colors.
I love looking out the window and seeing the yellow, oranges, reds and even browns
of the falling leaves.
Sweeping them up is another story.
I've been enjoying translating some of these colors onto paper.
The trees were embossed with the Woodland Textured Embossing folder and
lightly sponged with ink.
I have stamped the leaves from the Vintage Leaves set by Stampin' Up!
by inking with a base color and "rock and rolling" a couple of other colors,
spritzing with water.
Then I used an Aqua Painter to move the colors around and
add more color from the lids of the ink pads.
I used a Sahara Sand Marker to lightly draw veins and
used the Aqua Painter to soften the lines.
I splattered some diluted Soft Suede re-inker and a paint brush
over the leaves and pretty much the whole table.
There is a die for these leaves so I die cut with my hand cranked Big Shot
and added a bit more color along the edges.
The leaves have been shaped with a stylus and my fingers and adhered with Dimensionals.
I am loving these leaves!
Used a hand cranked Big Shot.

Does Simon have new glasses?
I do and I think we chose the same frames.
Or maybe I can see better and just noticed his glasses.
