A little leaf...






Hello all and welcome, with an especially big welcome to the newest followers - it's lovely to have you with us.  

It's sneak peek time here again at Words and Pictures, for an offering which is over at The Artistic Stamper today.  If you have time to hop over and take a look, that would be great.

Hope you're all having a great week and I'll see you soon, either here or elsewhere in Craftyblogland.

It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. The rich colours of grass and earth were intensified by the mellow light of a sun almost warm enough for spring.

Back with my third cup of coffee. Hmm ... might be an interesting study on what I observe and comment on as I get progressively more caffeinated :)

THank you for taking the time to fussy cut those leaves. Love the different layers with the foam tape. That with the grunge paste at the bottom really gives an organic feel to the project. Sweet stamping!!! Love the multiple inks on a single leaf AND your clear embossing over top is was inspired because it plays so brilliantly over top of the chalky gesso. Such a lovely way to celebrate fall!! -- Mary Elizabeth
