Messy watercolor Vintage Leaves for elegant Thanksgiving table decor
This was so fun to do! I cut a piece of watercolor paper in half and with my aquapainter and a lot of water, colored in the whole page in oranges, reds, yellows and a bit of green. I used Always Artichoke for my green and was a bit worried about how dark it looked.
I let it dry and the dripped some gold wink of stella over the sheet. The red is Cajun Craze and the yellow is Crushed Curry.
And then I thought the Gold "wink of stella" was a bit "blobby" (is that a word, don't think so!). So then it dried and.... with the matching framelits I cut out the leaves.
And I really liked the whole effect. The paper looked really green but the leaves in this random pattern look late leaves in late fall. Fun, quick and easy.. I think I'll scatter them on my dining table for Thanksgiving.
Happy Crafting and Happy Thanksgiving all - so much to be thankful for - MaryKate
