September is leaves and the colour brown.

I just love Autumn, the smells, colours and promise of new beginnings. I think it has to do with starting a new year at school with a new uniform and stationary. I always thought right! This year I will do better, stop my day dreaming, get more confidence, do my homework and keep my things looking nice. This lasted at most till October. Day dreaming was more fun than reallity back then. I still love new stationary though.
I drew my leaves on book paper and cut them out and coloured each on with a differnt wash. The back ground was made using dylusion sprays through stencils made by the cut out leaves. I used a thin layer of gesso to lighten where the leaves go. It then dawned on me I need to fit in a calendar. I stamped over the picture and embossed. Think it works just. Finally I used inktense darken the edge of the leaves and aquarable to partition off the leaves.

Hope you like.
