grow strong

i took a little time to play in my journal today.  these leaves were created by carving a simple leaf shape, and then carving a separate vein stamp to layer on top of the leaf image.  watercolor pencil was used to finish the tree limb...and my monoline letters are somewhat bumpy on this textured cold press paper.  but, that's the beauty of art...thankfully, it doesn't have to be perfect!

So simple and yet so effective. I like the idea of having two stamps for the leaves. Gotta make sure you line up the veins though.

You changed your blog header. I just noticed. Nice yellow.

Beautiful journal entry Lori. Leaves are so inspiring. I think they're my personal life symbol.

Thank you again for such kind comments on my blog!
p.s. I hated my voice on that video...I was so nervous when the photographer & audio person was recording me!

I love how the leaves look like watercolour too--although I'm assuming since you show your stamp pads that they are inked. Beautiful work!

Really great, Lori. Love the stamp, love the letterforms!! Have a great weekend. Baby Marc is a sweetie. :)

Oh, I love it! Seems like a lot of work for a little leaf...but then again, if you are going to use it over and over again.

But my favorite part is the lettering. Not bumpy to me!

I love your letters on the Journal, it looks great! And carving two stamps was a cool idea. I have never used water color pencils, I will have to try that.
Have a great day!~
