IA Challenge-Foliage

Greet and life each new day as if it were your first. -Unknown

Jenn who leads the APR challenges was also the leader for this week's inspiration avenue challenge. She prompted us with foliage, and even though I could have linked the same thing as yesterday, I had a burst of inspiration to create this little tree:
The background & tree trunk are watercolor & the leaves are dimensional--cut from a silk leaf.

I am also linking this to the 7 Card Draw Inspiration Challenge for April which is Earth Day.

Have a happy, creative weekend!

You are so very versatile in your creativity! Great idea and outcome. I can't think of a title (they can be so hard), but here is a quote that I think goes well with it. Maybe you can extract a creative title:-)
“Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile.”

Deb, so pretty and creative! I am trying to think of a name, if something comes to me, I will share ;o) Sorry I haven't e-mailed! Been gardening!!!
Hey Deb, for the title, how about simply, "Mother Nature".

And, you could put it into the 7 card draw for the earth day challenge ;o)

I like the color changes in the sky and the pretty leaves; sorry I can't think of a name.

I have no idea for the name, but I sure like this, especially with the clever use of the silk leaf.
