Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
We've been keeping an eye on Hurricane Ian and Our hearts and prayers go out
to all those affected by the storm.
I've been wanting to do some leaves for the Altenew Inspiration Challenge
and finally got to it. I think the challenge closes tomorrow.
This pretty leaf die had been sitting in my NBUS box for a few months.
It was past time to try it out.
There are two branches in the set and I cut them both twice from
watercolor paper. To color them, I used three colors (shown below) from
my Altenew 36 pan set of watercolors.
While the leaves were drying I hunted down a background that I'd cut
when Bobby came to visit. I'd managed to keep it pretty much intact with
some tape on the back. I love how it made such a pretty background for my
leaf bouquet! It's now on my ever growing wishlist.
I've used some rolled glue dots behind some of the leaves and left other
leaves to stand out for lots of dimension.
