Autumn Is A Second Spring

Graciellie Design

Albert Camus said that Autumn is a second Spring when every leaf is a flower. I couldn’t agree more with him. We are looking forward to walk through the wild to enjoy the colorful leaves.

My girls and I love picking up fallen leaves on the ground in the Fall. They are colorful and each of them is beautiful its own way. Inspired by the Autumn leaves, I colored the leaves from the Obsessively Grateful digital stamp by Graciellie Design.

I printed the leaves on Canson Mixed Media paper with ink jet printer. Then, I dried the ink with craft heater tool.

I colored each of them using Arteza Real Brush Pens. This time, I blended the colors with the brush pens, not watercolor brush. I love how they blended together beautifully.

I sprinkled some water on the leaves, let it sit for couple seconds, then I dabbed it off with paper towel. That gives the leaves the distressed look. I dried them completely and then I fussy cut each of them with micro-tip scissors.

On a piece of watercolor paper, I scribbled some of the light blue color using Arteza Real Brush Pen just in the middle of the paper. I sprayed ink with some water and using my finger to blend ink on the paper gently. I titled the paper to let the watercolor ink flowing.

I scribble some of the black ink using Arteza Real Brush Pen on my blending plastic plate, picked up the color with wet waterbrush, and then sprinkled some on the paper. I dried the paper right way with craft heater tool.

I trimmed and added the background panel on a top-folded white card with adhesive glue.

I trimmed the sentiment that I printed on a white cardstock, then I distressed the edges using distresser tool. I added the sentiment strip on the card with adhesive glue.

I added the leaves above the sentiment with adhesive glue. And I wrapped some of the Natural Burlap Twine Ribbon around the card to give it extra embellishment.

For me, nature is one of my inspiration resources. I hope you all enjoy this card today. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a fabulous day!
