I am really loving using all my distress inks and paints. I have used new techniques that I didn't know about and the effects they create are so wonderful. Now I'm wondering do I even need paints?
Today's page came together fairly quickly. I didn't use any one specific technique. On my drive home from work, I was enjoying the fall leaves that are left on the trees. The sun was shinning in just such a way that they seemed to shine on the trees. I wanted to try to recreate that look and feel on my page. Not sure I am satisfied with the effects but it looks pretty.
For the background I inked using red, pink and black distress inks. Then I stamped the leaves and using water I tried to take the color out of them. Then I recolored them with distress markers. I stamped over a few of them with clear embossing ink and clear embossing powder to produce some "shine". This didn't produce the effect I was really going for but it worked somewhat. I stamped and cut out the tittle and printed out and cut out the quote and verse. I inked the edges and glued to the page.
Thanks for stopping by.
