๐Ÿ Autumn’s Pencil ๐Ÿ
Goldenrain Leaves card by Leigh

My ‘Tis the Season Blog Hop inspiration for you today celebrates the beauty of Autumn and features all 3 of my new Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations and one of the Goldenrain Leaf Collage backgrounds.

The summer flower has run to seed, and yellow is
the woodland bough; and every leaf of bush and
weed is tipt with Autum’s pencil now.
John Clare

I used Nuance pigment powders and mixed media cardstock to make my watercoloured backgrounds.

I used all 3 of the Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations to create my focal point and typed the poem paragraph over the leaf stems.

I used one of the 3 Goldenrain Leaf Collages for the background panel then printed everything out onto my watercoloured papers.

I edged both panels with Spectrum Noir Midas gold pigment ink then layered them first onto black then russet brown cardstock mats and mounted everything onto a folded card base made from heavy weight white cardstock.  I then completed my card by mounting the focal panel to the background with black foam tape for a touch of dimension.
