TGF Heart Journal ~ week 12 ~ Watercolour Wonder

Gosh I was stuck this week when i saw the theme for TGF heART Journal, watercolours are not a medium I really delve into very much (a little with my wc pencils but thats about it! lol)  So took a while to work out what to do, I was thinking about trying to create a background wash going from grass up to sky and bits inbetween but while I was thinking about and looking out of my craftroom window I was inspired by the gardens and fields around with their autumnal colours and the trees so that was how the page was born!  I used some very old leaf stamps by Royal Langnickel stamped with clear embossing ink then heat embossed using silver pearl powder, the sentiment is a freebie from Sentimental Sundays and then I used some very old paints that I bought when I was starting out and they were the closest I could get to paints like twinkling H2Os! after painting I buffed up the embossed leaves with some cotton wool.  I'm actually pleased with how this turned out and this journal is certainly making us think a bit! lol

I would like to enter this journal page into the following challenges:
