Hi all and welcome to another week of the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week the challenge is autumn. You can be inspired by all kinds of things including the fall colors, foliage or activities enjoyed during the fall!
I took my inspiration from the fall leaves. I have am seriously in love with leaves and trees and they always inspire me to create. This time I created a journal page with layering of leaves and even tiny vignettes of trees and sentiments about trees built into the leaves.
Our puppy was even interested in what I was working on. I mixed in orange, yellow, red and a touch of gray / green in the sprays. I had applied gesso on the pages first.
I then traced the outline of the leaves in various areas using my watercolor pencils and sponged in some colors using the reverse mask from where I cut my leaves from. I stamped some of the trees and sentiments inside the leaves. I came back with the chicken wire to give the touches in the background. Finally I took all the dark pattern paper leaves and added them in the background.
