DC#289 Leafy Challenge

iamthedivacztThis week’s Diva Challenge is to get a leaf, trace it, and tangle it. It was hot here, for October, but Tiffany and I went out anyway. She helped me select a leaf from one of our Bradford Pear trees.

I liked it because it is rippley on the edges and has this nice point at the top. It also has some nice discolorations like Laura’s did.

Here’s my leaf.

#DC289 ~ Lifeofjoy.meI forgot to take a picture or scan before shading today. :( Oh well.

I drew the veins and then had a hard time not using Tipple (like the Diva did). I’m very suggestible and struggle not to mimic what I see. I decided to use something like Meer with the lines for the veins being the central line from which to draw the lines.

After that I was trying to figure out what else to do. I thought about using aura. So, I auraed the right side of the leaf twice and wasn’t thrilled with it. I outlined the other side with small orbs. Then began the shading.

#DC289 ~ Lifeofjoy.meIt’s not my best work but it meets the challenge. :)

Thanks in advance to any that leave comments. I love them and am encouraged by them.

Until next time, God bless,

Michele ºÜº

  1. First of all, I love the original leaf and more importantly, I love the simplicity of your tangle for this week. It definitely captures fall and you have shaded it beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing!
