A Fall Leaf….

The theme for this week’s Diva Challenge is “Birthday Leaves.” Artoo, the son of the Diva, Laura Harms, is celebrating his fifth birthday.  So sweet!  You can go to her site and read all about his birthday party.

For this challenge she asked those who live where it is autumn to “find inspiration from the fall colours, the leaves, the crunch of the leaves beneath your feet, maybe the frost on the branches” and for those who live where it is spring to be inspired “by the bright green buds or the new blossoms.

I used a leaf to “stamp” a watercolor image of the leaf.  I colored the leaf with Derwent Inktense pencils with the tip moistened with water.  Then I “stamped” the leaf on dampened paper.  Unfortunately, I didn’t scan the image before I tangled it – Sorry!

Here is my tile…

Tangles: Flux, Antidots, N’Zepple, B’Tweed, Cubine, Emingle, Printempts, Shattuck, Clusters, and Baton Colored with washes of Inktense watercolor pencils.

Looking at the tile, I want to add just a little bit more color, with colored pencil, the Intense pencils, or  H2O paints or somehow enhance the background.  Because it is already Thursday and I don’t know when I will get to revisit the tile, I thought I better post this one now before I will miss posting a blog for yet another Diva Challenge.

Now that my tile has been posted I want to see what others created in response to the challenge.  I hope you will take time to  view the tiles at the Diva Challenge blog and find these tiles as inspiring and educational as I do.

There are times that I would like to leave a comment about someone’s tile but find that I am not able to do that.  The only option that I can use is the  name/URL option.  I do not fit into the other categories.  Sorry!  I hope you know that I appreciate your tiles too!

As always, I am so grateful to all who leave me comments and if you leave a comment I will leave a response. Fair enough?  🙂   Your comments are a great source of encouragement and support.  To those who left comments last time, a huge THANK YOU!

Until next time,
Sending smiles,
Maureen
