Painting fun

I really enjoyed making this layout, with one of my favourite photographs from 2015:

I was inspired by the February challenge at ARTastic, and this fabulous painting by Australian artist, Cathy McClelland:

I used three different acrylic paint colours, and a pop of red with the machine stitching. I added the leaf motif with a stencil.

Kaisercolour Yellow acrylic paint
Kaisercolour Lime acrylic paint
Kaisercolour Navy Blue acrylic paint
TCW Mini Deco Leaves 6x6 stencil
Watercolour paper
Ribbon scraps
Blue sequins
Clique Kits NSD Freebie - Card1 digital printable
