I have started some online watercolour classes.
My favourite is WATERCOLOR BLISS with Alisa Burke.
I have taken some leaves from the Finnish forest that surrounds my house and I traced them down on watercolour paper.
I have tried to mix the watercolours paints (Winsor and Newton) to reproduce the colours of the leaves.
I traced the leaves with a Micron black pen from Sakura.
The frame has been hand-drawn with the same Micron pen.

Finally I have made my own handmade garland.
I used the Tattered leaves die designed by Tim Holtz.
The leaves were die cut from cream cardstock. Then I sprayed them with Distress Inks and I added some highlights with Distress Ink and blending tool.
I don't have the Tim Holtz stamps that match with these leaves so I used Kitchen Sink Stamps (3-step autumn squirrel)
For coloring these leaves I was inspired by a youtube video (very long and informative, I love it) from a very talented lady from New Zealand (Dianne of Art of Craft).
