Junk Mail to Gem: Ferns
I got tired of throwing away perfectly good collage materials. So, I am making pages made from junk mail (envelopes, flyers, magazines).
I love ferns. I found this image in my files to use as a jumping off point.
I got the pen out to free hand draw the ferns. Then, the acrylics out to fill in the leaves.
I love how this came out--the textures, the feel of the paper, the stamping on the background with my own hand-cut stamps (it's subtle, so it may not show up that great via the photo), and the lady bug. Just a little red goes a long way.
