DLP Week 44

Challenge:  Incorporate leaves (real or drawn/painted) onto your page in a creative way.

I wanted to have a lot of texture on my page by creating a tree.  I started by tearing masking tape into small pieces and placing it in my page in a rough tree pattern.

Once I had my tree defined I added modeling paste using a pallet knife.

I used a fairly thick coat with lots of lovely texture.  This was left to dry which took two days Then I added acrylic paint in sable brown to the tree adding thicker coats in some places and lighter in others to highlight all that great texture.

I then stamped lots of leaves at the base of the tree in pretty fall colors of orange, rust and yellow.

I cut a banner with my Big Shot and stamped a Fall saying and added some twine to make it look like it was hanging from one of the branches.

Hope you like my creation.  Thanks for stopping by.
