This is for Lydia's Start Spreading The News with a New York fall challenge. My 1st challenge, so I hope I'm doing this right. Fall color watercolors (sky blue & turning maple leaves) on wet paper towel. Maple leaf shapes outlined with black pen. Dried towel torn and glued on kraft paper. Printed text torn, glued down & outlined in black. Burnished all over with Distress Ink. White splashes of thinned gesso & white gel pen highlights on text. Paper edges inked with iridescent gold ink, then mounted on white cardstock.
