Thankful


The weekly challenge on Paper Players was CAS with Leaves.

I cut my tree design with my Silhouette Cameo.  I took the trunk of the tree and colored with a couple different mediums to get the brown.  I then took a piece of paper and marked the area where the leaves were located and then I took my paint daubers and just dabbed different colored paints all over.  I added some dashes or regular acrylic paint also.  I think I achieved the look of a fall tree in bloom.

This went in the mail to my daughter in Alaska.  I am sure she will appreciate the beautify of the fall tree.
