Just Leaf It

I love looking at leaves in the Fall.  I am always fascinated by their shape, color and design like this one that has a few holes in it that I found at the lake:


And here is its backside – isn’t it funky?  Its pattern is what attracted me to it in the first place!


I enjoy playing with leaf patterns from my memory and imagination too – like I recently did with an Elegant Writer pen in a 9×12 inch watercolor sketchbook:

I’m in love with this pen!  🙂  It is so fun to add water to it and watch it change!  A lot like leaves “magically” change color in the fall.

Yet, I wondered what would happen if I added “fall” color to my leaves?  So I added my Neocolor water soluble crayons and a little water…


And they MAGICALLY came to life!!  May color add a little MAGIC to your day…

Cheers Friends!!  🙂
