California Dreaming

Hi, hope you are enjoying your Sunday. Neil is channel hopping between the rugby world cup, football, and F1 so I've escaped to my craft room. I've been having another play with my gelli plate, Deco Art paints, and stencils.

I've used paints from the DecoArts Media range, and various leaf stencils and masks. I've also used Portfollio pastels in the corner.
This is black then a layer of quin gold/quin magenta/quin red/ yellow oxide.
Stamped and cut out. The leaf stamp is by Stampotique (of course) Some of them have had English Red Oxide antiquing cream rubbed over.
The words are typed on a new to me but old manual typewriter. I have to plink away with one finger 'cos I don't hit the keys hard enough with my others. I've got too used to a pc lol.
I'm entering this into the
That's Crafty lovely leaves  challenge, 
We Love 2 Create anything goes,
and Craft Stamper take a stamp.
Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking x
