Lightly Dance

Gelato Play in my Art Journal

We are feeling a bit of cooler weather and fall breezes here in central Florida, which we don't have very often.  We usually go straight from HOT to our version of cold.  We are all enjoying our beautiful Mini-Fall and I thought I'd do a little tribute page in my art journal.

Golden Gesso and Ground to prep the paper.
Faber-Castell Gelatos for a pretty and soft blended background and for coloring the leaves.
I used Ranger Archival Black for stamping the leaves.
The leaf stamp is one that I carved using a Speedball carving block and tools about 15 years ago.  I found it in my stash and pulled it to play!
Journaling printed on watercolor paper with my injet printer and distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and glued to my journal and coated with Glossy Accents.
Added little dew drops to the leaves with Glossy Accents.

Happy Fall Everyone!!
