Destination Inspiration at AVJ

Welcome to a new week and a busy Monday morning for me. This is the first of my posts today where I am inviting you to pop over to A Vintage Journey to see how I made the shabby leaves on my autumn canvas that I posted on Friday. 

I had found this picture on the internet and wanted to recreate the wonderful colours and veins.
Autumn leaves
Do you think I have achieved it?

I would love it if you manage some time to take a look and let me know what you think.

See you in about six hours with another autumn themed piece for Country View Crafts.

Have a great day.

They really do look realistic! Your card is a piece of art! I love how the gold (golden sun) shines behind the pumpkin.
I don't know about the size, but this very well could be a big poster size wallhanging. Even as a digital card of printed poster it would look great, ofcourse then we'll miss out on the texture but still, I love it.
