A doodled border with some white uniball highlights & circles frame the quote but I feel I still need to add a little more around the edge but will have to wait for another day.
DLP wants leaves and somewhere....somewhere quite safe....so safe that I cannot remember where it can be....I have some beautiful leaves that an Australian artist friend has sent me over the years. She paints on these local leaves and then stamps onto silk fabric....gorgeous! Anyway, I digress. I did not find them :-( but I will.
I did manage to use up a small pile of stuff that was sitting on my desk (yay!) and produced 4 pages, 2 full size & 2 "flip-in"
A piece of patchwork style leaves paper for the background, a page from a bible printed in Pashtun - love the calligraphy of it, and assorted leaves that have been stuck down and then outlined with a charcoal pencil (2 die cut leaves & the rest are stamped & fussy cut).
The tipin page is DI spritzed with water and then mopped with a wipe giving a ghosting effect. I've stamped assorted small leaf clusters around the outer part of the page, a frame (harvest season berries & grasses) a die cut leaf (mop-up) & a free stamp/border on the lower part of the page. The leaves have been coloured with derwent watercolour pencils & inktense pencils.
The reverse of the tipin has a doodled diecut border, a play with a new stencil that reminded me that I have a load of skeleton leaves so I dug them out & added an assortment of colours & 3 stickers I inked/stamped a few months ago.
I filled the void doodling with a gold & 2 shades of copper rollerball pens.
