painted leaf {igminiswap}

For some reason, I've had an itch to paint these days...


This time, it was painting leaves!  Or one leaf, to be exact.  ...For now.  (Our toddler has now requested a pink leaf.)  Either way, this one was inspired by a recent free people post on IG (no surprise there, right?)


It's splashed with a rainbow of liberty lawn scraps, along with some bright white sundial-esque accents radiating around the stem.


The background is a blend of creamy low volumes to complement the classic liberty hues.  And it's finished off with a slew of straight lines.


Well, mostly straight anyway.  ;o)  The mini measures just under 20" square and will soon be making its way to my #igminiswap partner.  Just as soon as I figure out the best international shipping route... eep!  Here's to hoping my partner can forgive the delay? :)

  1. Okay, two things.
    #1. I've also been itching to paint! But digital painting. I've unburied my Wacom tablet and everything.
    #2. HOLY WTF OMG guh. seriously you kill me with your awesomeness.
    OK three things. #3. I wanna do a mini swap with you. :) Except I don't know what to make you. So that will make it harder. You'd have to do a little mosaic or something. But that's workable, right?

  11. Love, just like everyone else. As for shipping International, if you are only sending this, then the cheapest is probably just to purchase a bubble envelope, depending on weight it will be about 10 to $16 But if you are going to put other items and make it heavier then go with the Flat Rate Envelope from the USPS for $25.
