Painting & Stamping with Leaves



I did this piece after Susan Chong showed her leaf pieces on arttechniques. This one is done on watercolor paper. I used color mists and ink pads. Hydrangea, foxglove, violet, and ivy leaves from my garden were my stencils and my stamps for this project. You can't really see the background's shimmer from the metallic sprays, but it really adds to the piece. Very fun! The one change I would make is to overlap the leaves a bit more.
