I have been saving these leaves and finally thought, it’s about time I clean off my work space. Very little effort applied. 😦 But at least I did journal.
I had planned to fill both pages with watercolor leaves, and frankly just wasn’t feeling it. So… Mira Byler suggested this in the youtube video I watched tonight. She tried it with ink first, which didn’t take to the leaves well, so I tried watercolor. Both had marginal success. She’s right, the gouache works better. Basically, a lazy artist’s page, but I’m sticking with the idea that I was EXPERIMENTING. Anyway, slapping gouache onto leaves is relaxing and fun.
