Nature Is But A Canvas To The Imagination

Happy Fall everyone...Here is our November Mood Board from Art Anthology to spark some inspiration in your next project. 
.... this is one of my most favorite seasons of the year because there is coolness in the air and the colors on the trees are soooooo pretty. I was in the yard the other day raking leaves and was admiring how very pretty each one was. I decided I wanted to utilize them in my next design team project for Art Anthology. 
On my canvas I used 3D Matt Gel to adhere my leaves  some twigs I got from the tree and also some sprigs of dried flowers I had in my stash. Gave them all a good coat of clear gesso so they would take to my sprays well. 

The translucency of the Art Anthology Coloration Sprays were perfect because they provided a pretty stain effect on the canvas while allowing the leaves and foliage to show through. 
Natural wood slices that were also stained with sprays provided a nice foundation for the title "Mother Nature has the best box of crayons" which I feel fits perfectly.
Hope you were inspired by my project and that you will join in and create with us using our beautiful November mood board. Don't forget to post it on our Facebook Page HERE so others can be inspired by your creativity as well.  For your pleasure, grab a cup of tea and enjoy my Snapguide tutorial below of my process.
