Sketchbook ~ Twinkling Leaves

Well, the leaves mostly gone… except for those living in my imagination or on the sketchbook page! I have really enjoyed playing ~ layering different types of watercolors with this particular page, though.  I began with a base layer of watercolor with the Peerless brand of watercolor papers.  Then I added the Luminarte Twinkling H2O’s for some sparkle, and a bit of more depth… I think?

And one of my favorite worship songs “Rushing Wind”  was sung in my heart as I drew… colored, and added details… you can see some of the words… perhaps.

“rushing wind… blow through me, like your tender breeze… search out the depths of my heart…”

Two pages full!  I loved it.  I’m trying to learn to get a lighter hand with my black pen.  Sometimes yes.  Sometimes No!

And just a bit of a trip down memory lane – here are two Autumn-inspired table runners, too.

 And here is “Leave it Beautiful in Twilight” a blue version; both of which were published on the blog last year – just click the links to see them.

And. Just in case anyone ‘out there’ is interested… I am offering anything with leaves in it… 50% off the listed price in my Etsy store.  Just contact me so I can set it up.  That is the beginning of my Autumn Celebration, with a couple free give-a-ways coming up… soon!  Very… soon!

Ever thankful to you all, have a great day!

  1. Leaves are one of my favorite things about fall. Love all of your pretty leaves, Leslie! Love the bits of sparkle. 🙂

  2. LEAVES! I think I shall try some of your inspiration in my current book project and I'm off to get my heart all a flutter. A MarveLes original! 🙂
