Moxie Fab World - Textured to Perfection

Moxie Fab world's competition with textures, here is one of the inspiration photos used as encouragement.

To enter the competition click here.

When I saw this challenge my brain defaulted to `fall` and leaves. I gessoed the background and mixed in pan pastels green. To provide more texture i pressed in the spine of the leaves into the gesso. I used corrogated cardboard as backdrop for leaves. On the cardboard, i used sandpaper on to give a grungy feel.
I cut the leaves from shapeabilities ``nested leaves`` and embossed the with thank you embossing folder.

As I looked at i realized it was layers of thankfulness. The twine added a nice accent of fall red. Even the the black leaves have thank anf you embossed on them.
