My final bit of homework for the Altenew Muse class uses photography as the inspiration.  

Love the soft colors with the strong contrast of the black tree and the bench for balance. 

I sponged on worn lipstick and broken china distress oxide inks and then went over the colors very lightly with some Altenew mocha.  Spattered some water drops, popped the piece up with fun foam on a pale grey base, added the leaves, the sentiment and a few clear sequins and done!

I have loved this class and would again highly recommend if you would like to stretch your designing skills.

Thanks for stopping by today and love to read your kind comments.
