Artful Journeys Week 38: Leaves!!!

Hey, y'all!!!  Melody here bringing you the prompt for this week over at Artful Journeys!  Man, let me tell you, I got up one morning last week, and actually had to grab a sweatshirt!  No lie!  It was 64!!!  In North Texas!!  In September!!!!!  If you know anything about North Texas, you know we don't usually hit the 60's till late October!  It was a wonderful and welcome change, that's for sure! 

And of course, with the changing of the weather, there are other changes.  One of those changes is the leaves.  Everywhere you look, the leaves are changing colors already, especially in the northern states, but even here they're changing.  So our prompt for this week is none other than "Leaves".  Use them any way you see fit.  Big leaves.  Little leaves.  Green leaves.  Make a wreath.  Make a pile.  Make a tree.  But use them.  Lots of them.  Let's see what the girls created for your viewing pleasure and inspiration.

First up is LYNN, and HOLY FREAKIN' COW!!!!!!  Lynn really knocked it out of the park this week with her spread.  Here's what she had to say about her spread and process:  "Welcome to this week's prompt!  This was a fun and fairly easy prompt to do.  I started off by painting the entire page with Adirondack acrylic paint in Hazelnut.  Over that I stenciled using my favorite color, Indian Turquoise by American Crafts.
I  used a new stamp I got yesterday, and stamped 3 leaves, fussy cut them and painted them Grass Green, before gluing them down and stamping extra leaves in black all around the page.  I added a few stickers and called it done.  It was fun and easy, and I was very pleased with how it turned out!
Make sure you go visit the girls' blogs and see what they came up with for this week.  They always do a wonderful job!  Thanks for reading!" -Lynn

And last, but not least, we have Betty's spread.  As always, she's supplied us with quite a treat!  Hurry on over to her blog, HERE, to see what she created! 





That's it for this week.  Be sure to leave everyone some blog-love so they know you stopped by, and don't forget to share your amazing creations with us on our Facebook page in ARTFUL JOURNEYS.
